ShinHan Art PASS Color Hybrid Watercolor Set (48 Tubes)
PASS Color by ShinHan Art is a hybrid of premium watercolor and gouache containing the best refined pigments and purified gum arabic to produce highly saturated colors. This set of 48 - 20ml tubes brings you translucency, opacity, and vibrant colors... all in one stunning collection.
The extreme cold weather and / or traveling by air during shipping may cause one or more of the tubes to burst. I check every package prior to shipping to ensure that all of the tubes are in perfect condition, but I cannot be held responsible for any weather or travel-related damage... this is normal for ALL paints that are shipped in cold weather or by air and all paints are sold with the expectation that this is a risk for this, especially during Winter.
PASS Color is ideal for those who want to express simultaneously both transparency and opacity to their artwork. By controlling the amount of
water dilution, you can adjust the transparency of the paint. On the flip side, if you want to express flat or opaque effects, as with gouache or poster colors, that's also easy to do with PASS Color by simply adding less water. These unique hybrid features allow artists to create beautiful blends and color on color effects with a wide range of colors.
Note that at first, you may just get a clear-ish medium coming out of the tubes. Every brand of tubed watercolor paint I've ever used, from ShinHan to Daniel Smith to Schminke, can have some settling and separation of the pigments and mediums between production and use by the end consumer. I find that if you massage the tubes a bit - with the caps on, you can work the mediums and pigments back together. If you do this prior to putting the paint into pans, you may find that you need to do it again when it's time to refill. This is normal and I don't do returns or refunds for this characteristic of the paint.
I love the versatility of these paints - you can create beautiful transparent washes and then reduce the amount of water to create opaque details without any chalky finish. Here you can see of few examples of how I've used PASS Color in my own work.
