Akashiya Sai Watercolor Brush Pen - 5 Spring Color Set - AKASHIYA CA200-5VA
04/18/2014
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

About Akashiya

Akashiya Co., Ltd. was founded in 1624 in Nara, Japan, and is famous for its calligraphy brushes. A famous Japanese monk, Kobo Daishi (弘法大師), taught Chinese brush calligraphy to Kiyokawa Sakanai in Nara around 800. This period marks the beginning of Japanese brush calligraphy. The type of brush pen from that period is also known as "Nara Fude (brush)".
