I love these. I use them...
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
- 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
