Let's explore the exquisite range of colors included in this set:

Chinese White (104):
Known as titanium white, this opaque mineral color enhances the whiteness of rice paper when applied on the back. Use it to depict waterfalls in landscapes, white furs or feathers on animals, or mix it with carmine or rouge for painting pink flowers.

Gamboge (218):
This transparent plant color is perfect for depicting flowers. Mix it with Indigo to create transparent green for leaves and trees, or blend it with white to add delicate pollen dots.

Vermilion (399):
A semi-opaque mineral color, ideal for painting orange-red flowers, maple leaves, autumn foliage, or creating vibrant sunset skies. It is particularly useful for portraying roosters and goldfish. For more intensity, mix it with cinnabar.

Cinnabar (398):
An opaque mineral color commonly used in flower and bird paintings, as well as human figure depictions. It exhibits a chalky texture and is often mixed with vermillion.

Rouge (400):
This transparent plant color is a rich dark red suitable for painting flowers. Dilute it with water or white to achieve cool pink tones for plum blossoms, or add a touch of red to leaves and branches. It is commonly used for painting tree flower calyxes like plum, peach, or cherry blossoms.

Carmine (390):
A transparent plant color with a beautiful crimson hue, perfect for portraying flowers. Combine it with white and rouge to paint peonies, roses, and other pink flowers.

Scarlet (302):
This transparent plant color is often mixed with vermilion and rouge to create dark red hues for peonies or roses.

Umber (684):
A semi-transparent mineral color made from yellow soil, ideal for painting earthy landscapes, rocks, tree trunks, and flower stems.

Light Green (593):
An opaque mineral color used in traditional blue-and-green landscape painting. Apply a layer of transparent green on the front side of rice paper, followed by this opaque green on the backside to achieve the desired effect. Avoid using it alone on the front side, as it may appear chalky. Always apply it on top of ink, umber, or vegetable colors.

Light Blue (493):
This opaque mineral color (azurite) is the third tone of three available shades. It is perfect for painting thick leaves, rocks, and the sky. Apply it on the back of rice paper, paired with transparent blue on the front to avoid chalkiness. Mix it with Phthalocyanine to darken if necessary.

Phthalocyanine Blue (451):
A transparent plant color that, when mixed with gamboge yellow, produces various greens for landscapes and leaves. It offers a more pure and intense blue than indigo.

Indigo (495):
A transparent plant color and one of the most versatile hues in Chinese painting. It serves as a complementary color to umber in traditional landscapes. Mix it with ink to create blue-gray tones, or combine
