This set includes 5 Spring themed SAI watercolor brushes. The colors are: Peach Pink, Rose Red, Pale Orange, Yellow Ocher, and Green.

The innovative design of these SAI brush pens from Akashiya is what helped it win the 2007 ISOT Stationery of the Year award in Japan. SAI brushes have the potential to revolutionize painting as we know it, allowing artists to create beautiful artwork from an elegant, non-messy tool. The brushes are a great combination of traditional sumi-e (Asian art) brush quality and modern brush functionality and portability.

SAI brushes are the first of its kind to reproduce water-soluble brushes in a self-contained, disposable form. It can be used with a water brush (such as the Pentel Aquash) to produce amazing gradients and effects. Colors can be mixed with water to create lighter shades, and colors can be combined with other colors to create new colors, etc. The brushes are always ready to paint whenever you are, and you can cap them when you are finished. No wonder they created so much buzz in Japan. JetPens is proud to search out great products like these and bring them to you!

There are 20 beautiful individual brush ink colors available. A special pigment ink waterproof outline brush is also available for drawing purposes.

Like many watercolors, the SAI brush colors other than Black are not light resistant, so colors will fade if kept in sunny areas. These brushes are perfect for journaling or painting artwork for indoors.

Note: Apart from their packaging, body prints, and color names, Akashiya Sai watercolor brush pens are identical to Deleter Neopiko 4 watercolor brush pens.

I absolutely love these!...

I absolutely love these! We picked them for my son to use when drawing and coloring. They are so convenient to use that we get to avoid the whole setup and clean up involved when using regular paint. In fact, we will often draw and paint pictures while he is sitting in bed, right before going to sleep. They are also very convenient for car trips because they don't cause a mess. We have bought the other sets of colors and we haven't had any problems except for one black brush pen that started to leak. That was one problem color out of about twenty, and it happened after having used it trouble-free for a good long while. I really recommend these brush pens for trouble-free painting!

The pens are great, smooth and water-soluble as advertised, but please, even if you are going for your first pens and you're not sure if you'll like these, buy the 20-pack. This are awfully overpriced in comparison to the 20-pack. You'll save money. I beg of you! Do not waste your money here! Go buy the bigger pack, you will not be disappointed. As I said, great pens, but not a great deal.

The colors are just stunning and clear. The application is terrific, the pens don't drag and it takes very little pressure to apply color. I just ordered a second set (the summer colors) because these are part of my travel art kit. They can be blended added water color and you can lighten the colors by adding water and they dry fast. It's so convenient to be able to do watercolor with a pan. Love these

The colors are very, VERY vibrant and the ink is nice and wet, without being runny. Since I don't paint very much (or at all ^^') it'll take some getting used to to learn the best way to stroke the pen for that perfect water-color look, but for now it's kinda fun to just doodle with them >v<~! I'm excited for the kinds of combinations I can make with the colors, too~! Anyway, the brushes feel great and color very well, so I'd recommend them~!
