What experts liked

Rich vibrant colors including 6 neon and 8 metallics. Contains good bright clear primaries as well as convenience mixes. Works well on lightly sized paper like art journals and cardstock as the paint is a bit thick.
- The Frugal Crafter
The colours themselves are intense, rich and can be watered down quite considerably without losing any vibrancy. The feel when using the paints is very smooth and silky, unlike the grainy and watery feeling I get when I’ve used cheaper watercolours. I like the fact you can make colours as opaque or transparent as you want without losing the richness of colour.

What experts didn't like

No pigment info available. Does not move much on paper compared to traditional watercolor paints. No refill pans available.
- The Frugal Crafter
I’m not sure how useful the metallics would be for everyday use and would probably recommend they were taken out of this kit and replace with some useful matte colours like a rose pink, a limey ‘spring’ green and a scarlet. If I could change one thing about the set as it is, I would set out the colours in spectrum order and number them 1-40 on the swatch card provided so that you can select your colours at a glance if you just want to take a small selection
