If you are using these paints and want bold/dark colors, you either have to paint a layer, let dry, then paint again and add layers (which can destroy the paper) or seriously SCRUB the paintbrush onto the cake of watercolor (which will instantly destroy the tip of most paint brushes).
Struck with a recent, sudden urge to watercolor (blame it on a gift of the Pentel Arts Aquash Water Brush, (FRHMBP)- it makes watercoloring just as easy & clean as using pens or markers) I'd picked up Crayola Washable Watercolors at a big box store and a few days later ordered this Art Alternatives set, hoping they'd be quality suitable for a bit more serious art. They weren't- I keep finding myself going back to the crayolas and only using this set to retint the crayola primary colors that aren't quite true primaries.
Bottom line: if the depth of color and ease of use is less than a children's set of watercolors, and the price is exponentially more, this is a product to PASS on.
I asked for these as a Christmas gift two years ago just to keep in my purse and I have been happy with them. They are NOT professional quality and I would never use them for professional illustration, but they have worked wonderfully just for taking along with my field journal for watercolor sketches and I have also used them to make artist trading cards as a side hobby. The colors are dull and do not get very bright, but they are lovely if you like subdued color. This works great for nature sketches. The included brush is of fair quality and has been all I need for field work for the most part. I did add a very fine brush for detail work which also fits in the tin. The container is a plain silver tin with nothing printed on it. Some of the colors are a bit chalky but not too bad. It's a great little set to carry along with a sketch journal or for small projects. I am including photos of some work I have done using this exact set to give you an idea of the range you can get from the colors. I do wish some of the colors were more vibrant, especially the red and the purple.
