December 11, 2013
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.

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.

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

The pans of color are very hard. It is difficult to get any amount of pigment on the brush.

Always a favorites when i order watercolors for my kid. Special effects layering atop darker colors is how we use it, not a straight application to plain paper. The paint thickness in the pan are rather thin, but sets are affordable for a 4-5 sessions if using as we did for shimmer effects. There is also a 16-color set elsewhere.

It's the perfect finish for any painting, its a really nice subtle sparkle. I just didnt like how translucent the color was, but other than that its perfect.
