I'm primarily writing this review to say that my set actually came with a white, rather than a black, which the other customers were complaining about. So either Winsor & Newton came to the correct conclusion on their own and rectified their mistake, or the seller I received my set from had a different variation, though everything else matches the listing. (for reference, I bought from Hyatt's)

That said, I found the packaging/size/amount of product to be perfect - they each come separately wrapped in their own detachable bins within the palette, making swapping colors and cleaning easy, and each individual plastic bin has the corresponding color printed on the side, in case you forget what color it contained originally. The posted measurements are accurate; double check them to make sure that's what you want before you buy it. The tiny blocks of are about the size of a single lego, which is actually plenty. The tiny brush is actually a two-part, with an long cap that forms the rest of the brush handle. I'm not sure why they bothered, because the assembled brush still fits in the slot. I suppose it protects the brush to some degree?

All things said, if I were to lose my set, I would buy it again. In fact, I am extremely tempted to buy another one now, just because it's adorable, particularly if you have an odd love for miniatures. In fact, you may find yourself tempted to take up miniature painting now that you have a miniature paint set.

I bought these as an upgrade to my student grade reeves brand watercolors. I haven't done much with them yet, but I am excited to start playing with them. One of the pictures are all of the colors swatched out, which I plan to laminate and keep in my box. Another picture is The box compared to a standard gift card. As you can see the box is just a tad bigger than the gift card - it truly is pocket sized!

The brush is nothing to get excited over. It is just a small round or liner-type brush. I probably won't use it, as it gives me hand cramps since the handle is so tiny.

I would like to address several complaints I have seen.

First, with the watercolor cakes coming out of the pans. I simply took the cake out of the pan, put a big drop of water underneath, and stuck the paint cake back in. After a bit the water makes the paint a bit gummy, so I simply gave it a firm press, and I haven't had a problem since.

Another complaint is that the paint pans don't stay in the case. Well, that is true, but again I have a simple fix. I took the plastic pans of paint out of the box, and added just a dab of hot glue, then gave them a firm press back into the palette. This worked well. I tried prying them out, and they stick. When they are gone, you can simply take a pair of pliers and pull out the empty pan and replace. On my other set I used a piece of double sided tape that I cut in half length wise, then stuck the pans back in. I think I like it better then the hot glue. The tape holds well, but the pans can be pulled out just simply using the end of a brush to pry it out. Sticky tack/blue tack/museum putty works well too.

Because these pans are sold as open stock, meaning you can replace one color at a time, I would not suggest getting too carried away with super glueing the pans into the palette.

These watercolor pigments are really great - I've never had a better set of pigments and they're the cheapest AND in the smallest, most compact and elegant case I could find. It's really the perfect portable watercolor set. I highly recommend it!
If you're not a pro, don't be put off by the absence of "black"... you don't need it (you can get a very nice charcoal with a blue and a brown).

I bought this little pocket sized watercolor set to use for casual sketching out of doors and doing quick color studies. It's small and compact. I recommend using a Pentel Arts Aquash Water Brush for convenience.

The colors are bright if you add enough water.

A great, little beginner set at a reasonable price. It would make a lovely present for a young artist.

This set is spectacular all around. Winsor&Newton Cotmans are an excellent choice for beginners, and this set provides an okay palette to start. Several issues (minor, wouldn't influence my decision to buy) include the fact that the pans do not stay held down-something that causes a lot of headache on the move. Even with heavy use and breaking in, two of my pans refuse to stick, a good tip might be to use a little waterproof tape (not glue) to hold them down. The only other main issue is that the hinged area behind the mixing wells can get flooded by washes and will spill out all over whatever surface the set is on when you try to close the lid. I haven't found any solution to this besides placing a paper towel underneath when I'm cleaning up.

The travel "brush" that comes with the set is absolute trash. I have replaced mine with a small flat with a sawed down handle.

The mixing wells are adequate for basic sketching, but I keep a palette with me as well so I don't run out of space for different washes.
