Turner Japanesque colours are an extension to the Turner Acryl Gouache range, inspired by Japanese traditional paintings, or 'Nihonga', which are typically executed on Japanese paper or silk. The range includes 69 colours, all of which are opaque, matt acrylic paints with a slightly coarse consistency. This texture is designed to mimic that of the traditional paints, which are made from crushed mineral pigments, shells, corals and even semi-precious stones (like malachite, azurite and cinnabar) in a hide glue binder.
Like all of Turner's Arylic gouaches, the Japanesque colours dry quickly to a matte finish. Once dry, they are water-resistant, which means they can be applied in multiple layers without bleeding. When used with mediums, they can be used on almost any surface, including rock, metal, glass, paper, canvas and wood.
The tubes and box of this special edition set were designed by renowned Japanese artist Hisashi Tenmyouya. The set contains twelve Japanesque colours selected by Tonmyouya in 11ml tubes:
Violet, Deep Blue, Green Light, Greyish Brown, Yellow Brown, Strawberry Red, Scarlet, Deep Yellow, Blue Black, White Gohun, Deep Green and Light Green.
