Lightwish MeiLiang Children’s Watercolor Paints, 36-Count

Last updated: September 30, 2022


Although this watercolor paint set resembles the cheap watercolors you had as a kid, they are actually made using arabic gum, which increases the gloss and transparency of the paints. The colors are certified non-toxic and mix together beautifully. There's even a metal case with an easy-open lid to keep your paints organized.

We looked at the top Watercolor Paint and dug through the reviews from some of the most popular review sites. Through this analysis, we've determined the best Watercolor Paint you should buy.

Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

Bright clean transparent colors. Colors mix cleanly. Lovely tin/palette. Comes with a waterbrush or you can use the storage slot for your favorite brush. beautiful smooth colors finely milled.
At a small fraction of the cost of other paints (you can get this set of 36 colors for the cost of 2 tubes of artist grade paints) it performs almost as well.

What reviewers didn't like

All the info except color names is in Chinese so if there is pigment info available I can’t read it LOL!
Professional artists who sell their work may require greater control over knowing pigment ingredients, an entire line of lightfast paints or the ability to restock colors individually via tubes.
