thereby making this an awesome watercolor. Pros
15 November 2016
Just finished using up most of the half pans.
I have my pros and cons for this watercolor.
However the the pros outweigh the cons, thereby making this an awesome watercolor.
Pros: The watercolor comes in a metal tin case, which makes it very rigid and stable.
There is a big space for color mixing, so colors can be mixed directly on the metal case, you won't need a separate pallete. They provide a color swatch with all the details of the colors on the box.
The half pans are plastic pans and they can be removed out individually, and they snap back into the box snugly.
They provide a small round brush, which works very well to paint details and also holds good quantity of water.
The pan almost has all the essential colors needed.
The metal case is very small and very compact. This is the watercolor set you will want if you are on travel or doing a travel journal. In fact that was the best thing about this set.
About the colors, the colors are rich and very vibrant, they do have honey in them. I accidentally spilled some color and there was ants all over, this made me realise that there was a good quantity of honey added to the colors. Have added some painting along. To look at more samples look at my instagram @chennaibushcraft.
After using up the colors you will be left with a good sturdy metal case and 24 plastic half pans, which can be filled with colors of your choice. So it's a very good investment.
Cons: although the colors are vibrant and rich, they don't provide us with the most wanted cadmium colors. And in my opinion I feel that sennelier tubes are little more better than half pans. The price is too high. I do understand the fact that they have given the best price when considering the heavy pigments, gum arabic and honey. But even then I thought twice before buying this because of the price.
Overall I would say that eventhough it may seem expensive, it's an awesome investment. One case would last for minimum 1 year. And also you can refill the half pans and go on. Do not take time to decide just buy it if you're looking for a good solid water color set.
