April 29, 2015
I love these. I use them both as a compliment to regular watercolour, and on their own on black paper. I especially like them for getting that iridescence that some bird feathers have and putting some sparkle in highlights.

A couple of tips:
- Put a drop or two of water on the pans you want to use, then let it sit for a minute or so. Should find you can pick up a lot more pigment that way.
- The lid makes a handy mixing palette.
- Clean your brushes and rinse buckets thoroughly before you go back to regular watercolours or other watermedia, or you might find you end up with some unexpected sparkles! I now have a watercolour landscape with accidental shiny trees.
- Apparently watercolours can go mouldy if you put them away wet, I've let mine stay wet for a few days without any issues, but I would let them dry before storing long-term.

These watercolors are very fun. I use them as a sparkly accent. But they can be used just like you would regular water colors.

My only complaint was that the watercolor disks fell out of their pans. OTOH, this allowed me to rearrange the colors the way that I wanted before gluing them back in.

Good for accents, but not for stand-alone paints. They have a very subtle shimmer that adds high gloss to the piece and a few of the colors are vibrant enough to show up on their own, but this set is best used for accents.

Love the colors, dislike how little paint were in each. It was rather cheap though, so the quality exceeds the price in my opinion.

I love these watercolors so much. I use them in my journal both after using Gesso as well as directly on the page. They are gorgeous and add a subtle shimmer to the page. I'm currently using a Midori MD notebook which has paper that is good with ink or, in this case, watercolor. I've not tried these paints on other paper, but like any water-based color medium, the paper you use can make a huge difference. I've given one box as a gift and will definitely purchase them again Excellent product.
