Ten plastic flower palette trays allow each student to have their own colors at hand, and include 7 curved petal-shaped wells for separating colors. The Sumi-E book (written by Yolanda Mayhall) lends as inspiration and includes instructions on how to master the 4 basic brushstrokes of Japanese painting techniques. Made in the USA.
