PIGMENT SELECT Japanese Style Painting Set 12 colors

2020-05-12

We are offering the Japanese style painting set for beginners.

First of all, some people may wonder,“What is Japanese painting really about?”.

Japanese painting is one of the traditional drawing expression that draw with a mix of animal glue and mineral pigments. It may seems difficult, but the process is actually simple.

All you need to do is mix mineral pigments and adhesive (medium) called “Animal glue”.

Now you can experience the world of mineral pigments easily! 


For beginners, we recommend this PIGMENT TOKYO’s Original 12 colors set.

We are offering both natural mineral pigments, and Shin-iwa (artificial) mineral pigments. 

Let’s see the difference between the two.

As the name has shown, natural pigments are the pigments made of ground natural ores which the color tone is mutated 



On the contrary, Shin-iwa pigments (artificial pigment) are made of ground colored synthetic pigments. Modern color of Shin-iwa pigments has the sense of Japanese elegance, but also perfect for gorgeous expressions.



By comparing the same color of Gunjo, we can see the difference.

While the texture of natural pigments are rough, the Shin-iwa pigments produces matte texture and color. 


Natural Gunjo (9) with double application.


Shin-iwa (9) with double application. Can you see the difference?



After you purchase this set, all you need is to prepare water and paper.

It contains animal glue, plum palette, and brush which were selected by PIGMENT TOKYO’s art material experts.


Special animal glue, Plum palette, and brush are included in the Original set.
