These are my go-to paints. They fit that wonderful spot between watercolors and gouache to the point that you could mistake this paint for either. And you use them exactly the same way you would Western watercolors; a little bit goes a long way! The hues are vibrant, lightfast, and mix well with each other. I can't recommend these paints enough!
