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'm giving this a 4 star....

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.

this is my first set of real watercolours, after upgrading from the chaulky michaels' artist loft ones. i love them to death, and they are my go-to. i'm going to be trying windsor and newton colours soon, but i have a feeling these will remain my favourite. they are definitely student grade paints, but they can be manipulated and used to the point where they look professional. some of them are transparent and others are opaque but it's not a deal breaker. the pans themselves also get dirty easily on the white plastic (so it looks messy) but that's only a minor issue.
small bug
