Do you own the Japanese "Gansai Tambi" watercolors featured in Kristian Warner, Jennifer McGuire, and Nichol Magouirk's Youtube videos? I know everyone has mentioned, "Sure wish I knew the name of each color kartsonset? Well...I found a site that has the first diagram, showing each color's name in "English," that you can print out. To whisk away to "Art Meierhofer" site click here. Once there, scroll down and click on the "printer" image to print out diagram. The second chart is from "Jackson's Art Supplies." I preferred this chart since it's easier to read. I just enlarged the diagram when I sent it to print, then cut 'em out and glued them in their respective place on the diagram underneath the bottom of lid.
The "Gansai Tambi" watercolors are among my top 3 favs, based upon cheaper price point (bang for your buck) in regards to the richness of color pigment. (Of course, color saturation depends upon amount of water used.) "Peerless" watercolors are my 1st favorite. Here's a video review on "Peerless" watercolors by "AmyR" at Youtube: Prairie Paper & Ink.
