First time using the Gansai Tambi watercolours. Wow I really love it. Excellent quality! These palettes are very creamy and rich in pigmentation. The colours are so gorgeous and creamy and do not need a lot of water to activate those colours. The pigments are rich and blends nicely. 🙂 I am not a pro in watercolouring but this is so easy to use.

Step 3:
Use a pencil to curl the paper a bit to make the bow to have a more dimension look.

Step 4:
Fold 2 ends of the tails toward the middle of the paper.
