I really like the size of this set, I wanted something that carried a lot of colors and was super small.

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.

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).

Closed, this set measures 5"x2.5"x.75", yet it manages to squeeze in 12 half pans of good, student-grade watercolors, 3 modest wells, and a decent quality #3 brush. My only gripes are the inclusion of Chinese White and the tiny carrying capacity of the brush. I don't care for either, but both are easily replaced; Paynes Gray and a #4 work better for me.

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.

The great thing about this set is that if you don't want to use the Cotman colors, you can replace the pans with any half pan (W&N Artist Colors for instance) or fill the pans with your own paint. And I love the travel brush that comes with it - it's almost worth the price just for the brush.

I love these watercolor paints because they last forever, they're easy to carry anywhere, and the colors are just beautiful.
I have been painting for years and I still use these paints. Next will be a set for my son who is learning watercolor.

This set is around the size of an iPhone, I knew this before I purchased because I saw it in the store, at a higher cost. I wish this set had a black, insted of white-- which is practically useless. Another reviewer mentioned this was an easy fix, filling the place for the white with black from a tube. Beautiful paints, with an expensive, waxy texture that makes for high pigmentation, aside from the white/black issue, these are 10/10. Even so, I love it.
