greetings for today's video I'm very excited to feature something new and relatively different have you heard of the Shinhan pass color pants they are a very unique type of paint that is a hybrid of gouache and watercolor it is the only professional product of this sort in the world the idea of these paints is that by controlling the amount of water you mix in you can get varying results more water will give you transparency like with watercolors and less water will leave the paint more opaque like a gouache I'm very curious about this concept and eager to paint with these paints these paints are crafted by Shinhan and they were introduced in 2015 so they are quite new the range offers 48 colors at the moment and you can buy it both in single tubes of 20 ml or in sets I really like that they offer 48 color set so that you can opt for that and will have all the colors in the product range the paint is certified non-toxic all the pigment information is readily available both with the brochure or on the tubes you can find all of shin-chan's brochures on their website a small bit of history on Shinhan they are a Korean company that has been crafting paints since they were established in 1967 their headquarter is in Seoul Korea they started by making poster color paints but slowly added more types of paint and other art supplies to their products they are focused on crafting the best quality paint possible for me locally their paints have not been available for long my local stores have the professional watercolors and poster paints I wanted to take a moment to talk about the brand because they are fairly new to me and unlike Winsor and Newton or daniel smith some of us might not have heard of Shinhan before the colors I have are burnt sienna permanent red permanent yellow SAP green cerulean blue hue and permanent violet the tubes are made of plastic and easy to open the only downside to these paints would be the general light fastness of the product range according to the brochure I have Shinhan rates these pass color paints with stars four stars being their highest degree of light fastness and one star being a low degree of light fastness only three colors from the range have four stars 13 colors have three stars 24 have two stars and the eight colors have one star in that regard these paints are closer to gouache and designer paints for the conservation aspect it would be best to scan and keep a pristine copy as a digital file and take the necessary protective measures if you want to hang original art on your walls I decided to combine my swatches and a small chart to figure out how these colors look and mix together I was able to get a very natural range of colors from the six tubes that I have I wanted to do some more tests so I picked up another sheet of paper and kept on going when laid down more like watercolor the color is layer very nicely my top layers didn't move the bottom layer too much unless I would paint over it repeatedly in that regard it behaves exactly like what I'd expect from watercolors I also made some very opaque swatches and these behaved like gouache in the sense that it was easier to move a right color if you look at the watered-down series of line I made I had no problem overlapping lines perpendicular to them the purple and green lines lay there on top and didn't affect the colors underneath when I scrub that the lines with the very water we wash I was able to move some of the color if you look at the more opaque swatches the overlapping yellow lines picked up a lot more color because there was a lot more therefore the brush to pick up I was able to pick some of the pigment up but they all stained the paper rather well in this case so I wouldn't plan around being able to lift the color of the paper when painting I set out to paint a landscape to try these paints on purpose I had let my palette dry out for a couple of days I wanted to see how these paints dry and if I can reword them easily some dried out but stuck well through their spot some were a bit more cracked and I could pick them up alike dry little paint cakes nothing had flaked off though which is something that can happen with cheap watercolors and gouache I added some distilled water to the dry paint and let it sit for a minute or two while I prepare everything else the first thing I noticed here is how well these were wet I was surprised they did even better than some of my professional watercolor paints the dried cakey bits reconstituted perfectly without being crumbly or too hard all my pre-made mixes also came back to life as if they had never dried with any medium that can be reactivated I like to work from light to dark I applied a base color wash and built on top of it letting each layer dry completely before adding another one on top the second thing that was surprising to me is how easily I could mix rich deep dark colors Shinhan say they used the best refined pigments and purified gum arabic to produce highly saturated colors and seeing this i believe them painting from light to dark I had no issue with lifting colors where I didn't want to and I was able to build a strong color very quickly as long as you're not trying to make a color lighter you can really pile on the paint and it takes it really well the colors are indeed very vibrant more so than what I'm used to and I really love it I was happy with my first demo but I wanted to play some more with these pains so I prepared a second sketch and painted it this time using colors I have not used a lot in the first painting again the colors worked really well from washes to more opaque applications even watered down these colors never look washed out they have a unique strength that I find fascinating when I decided to try out these paints I was really curious to know how the hybrid factor would play in I love that Kosh is intense and opaque but it is also difficult to work and doesn't keep well in a palette watercolor on the other hand we wet generally better in a palette but it is harder to get strong dark and vivid colors without laying down a lot of layers Shinhan pass color paints really delivered the best of both of these worlds I went in without expectations but I'm impressed by these colors I would recommend trying these out if you're really unsure start with one tube Jaxon's sells these paints and most of the colors are around four US dollars per tube which is less than a fancy coffee I'm not trying to be an enabler but these are pretty awesome so if you can give them a try and let me know how you like them in the comments below thanks for watching take care bye bye
