These stamp ink pad sets each contain four colors, with nine sets in total.
Each set contains complementary colors that have been hand selected by Tomoko Tsukui.
As a result, for those who are unsure which colors to choose for a given project, each set can be used confidently to create a perfectly balanced color pallete in your next artwork.
The individual color names themselves are traditional Japanese words that were used in characterising kimonos, flowers, and birds some 500+ years ago.
For example the "Shinbashi" color, which is a district in Tokyo, was the colloquial name used to describe kimonos fashioned from material of this color.
These inks can be used on both fabric and paper, and have water resistant qualities in both applications (for fabric, please iron for 10 seconds first).
