This is a one-off limited edition set of long retired Holbein watercolors recreated by Oto Kano.

There are only 15 sets of this set and once they are gone, they are gone forever.

Holbein retired seven colors back in 2011. These included three colors much loved by Hayao Miyazaki Kantoku of Studio Ghiburi. Oto Kano has recreated those three colors (Violet Grey, Cobalt Green Yellow Shade and Permanent Green No. 3) as well as Compose Green No. 2.

To recreate as close to the feel of the original as possible, Holbein watercolors have been used to recreate these colors. The colors were recreated according to Holbein’s own recipes they released so that the retired colors could be recreated with other colors from their range. Check out how these colors were hand blended by Oto Kano.

You will receive a half pan of each color. Pans are each labeled with their color name and pigment codes. Each pan is secured into the metal tin with a magnet, so the pans are removable but secure in the tin.

Your palette will be packaged securely in the usual Oto Kano shiny black bubble envelope. For postage you have two choices: untracked (first class for UK and airmail for overseas), or tracked & signed (available for UK and overseas). As this is a limited edition that will not be recreated, it is highly advisable to order with tracking. You can select which shipping you’d like at checkout. The final shipping is calculated by the weight of your order. Please allow 3 working days for UK and 10-15 working days for overseas for delivery from the date of dispatch.
