Waterbrushes are a fairly new invention from Japan that have quickly gained popularity all around the world. There is a lot of potential in these brushes, as they eliminate the tools normally needed for watercolor paintings. They are also extremely portable, allowing one to paint on the go. The Sakura Koi Watercolor Field Box Sets come in 12, 18 and 24 color sets and include specially formulated and easily blended watercolor paints and a portable water brush. Each set comes in a sturdy and compact carrying case that you can slip into your pocket and take anywhere. Additional waterbrushes in different sizes are also available separately.

The 12-color ‘pocket’ size contains:
• A small size water reservoir barrel handle
• A detachable medium brush tip
• A dabbing sponge
• A divided snap lid cover serves as a palette
• Weighs: 3.8 ounces Size Dimensions: 4.5” x 3.5” x .875”

Both the 18-color and 24-color ‘postcard’ size sets contain:
• A large size water reservoir barrel
• A detachable medium brush tip
• Two dabbing sponges
• A snap lid acts as an easel for postcard size paper
• The detachable, pegged palette secures to the kit base either to the right, left or center sides
• A base pull-down ring allows easy gripping of the kit
• 18-color weighs: 8.4 ounces 24-color: 9.0 ounces

I would have given this...
I would have given this kit a 1 star if it wasn't for the case. The case is awesome! the brush is terrible and the paints are very, very, very bad. The paints all granulate exactly the same. This doesn't allow for any texture. If you go into this purchase just trying to get an inexpensive pallet you can convert with new paints then you will be happy. If you go into this purchase thinking you are going to be able to use this set for more than quick sketches than you will be very disappointed. Koi's watercolors are not professional grade.

I'm giving this a 4 star....
Verified Purchase
I'm giving this a 4 star. I bought this as my first set because it seemed like the cheapest alternative. At first glance it's a really great set. It comes w/24 colors, 2 sponges, a palette, and a brush pen. I've never worked with this type of watercolor paint before so I wasn't 100% sure what to expect. Overall it's a really good product. The paint quality is nice, the brush tip is really good, but there are a few problems. First the paintbrush itself...it tends to push out too much water on the first squeeze. Also, the brush must have been made backwards. Instead of turning RIGHT to tighten, you turn LEFT. So after about 30min playing around w/my new paint set, I spent about 10min fighting it to open it because I forgot they made it backwards. Lastly, the sponges aren't that great in absorbing water. To clean the brush of the current pigment, you have to keep squeezing water. I was using the sponges for this, but they don't seem to suck up water very fast. For this, I would recommend using a paper towel or separate sponge.

I'm no professional watercolou...

I'm no professional watercolour artist, but I found this to be the best set I've used to date.
The colours are great; though I mainly abuse the more earthy colours. It's really compact, and I'm more than happy that I can take it around with me everywhere. It isn't granulated (those specks in them that make it look sandy) like some other brands that I've tried, so that's another thumbs up. I'm mainly focused on the colours and handiness.
The brush is plausible; I've replaced it with a Pentel Aquash. The barrel of the waterbrush that comes with the Sakura Koi doesn't really have a spring to it. It's just there. Perhaps it is because I'm not accustomed to it, but I found it difficult to control the amount of water.
The sponges; I don't even bother with it. It doesn't soak up anything. It's again, just there.
Palette is great; I've even squeezed out some tube colours on it so I have more colours. I'm happy with that.

i watercolor and ink...
Verified Purchase
i watercolor and ink and i'm always looking at prices for the products i buy the most, and JetPens has them for a decent price. Sakura is a brand i buy often, from their pens to their watercolors. the colors are vibrant and high quality, perfect for students and professionals. the travel case is excellent, even though i do use these for traveling i often use them at my studio as well. i love the brush pen this case comes with, however i'm not too fond of using them with cakes because they over saturate them and typically either fill the tube with water and a bit of watercolor and use them as a pen instead. since the case can be reused you can fill them with cakes or color or fill in a used pan with tub color. the only gripe i have about this case is the plastic sheet inside that hold the brush, watercolor cakes and sponges. the plastic is so flimsy and thin that it often breaks. there have been a few cases i have bought and found a bottom ripped off from one of the pans of color that i needed to repair it. typically, when i use up all or most of the watercolors i just take out the plastic thingy and put in cakes i've bought at the art store. the case the set comes in and the pallet are awesome and i can't help but buy them when i need a new set though.

I really want to get...
I really want to get the Akashiya watercolour brush pens but they're too pricey, so i was looking at this one.
How do they work? Is it different from normal paints?
(sorry i havent used watercolours before)
