These paints are great quality. The colors are beautiful and shiny, absolutely outstanding. But there's a big problem with the palette I received: some of the cakes in my set have a big bubble in them. It doesn't seem present in all the cakes, but then again I haven't used all of them equally. I tested each color and did a little lettering with each. After letting water sit on them a while I stirred the surface so I could letter with them and the champagne silver ended up with a hole in it. No matter who you are, a mere half hour of lettering won't blow through to the bottom of the pan of your paint. After letting them dry a little, the paints were still pliable. To my surprise, I was able to press down onto some of the paints and into what seemed to be a pocket of nothing, almost as though there was a manufacturing error that resulted in an air bubble inside my paint. This occurred in four of the colors from what I can tell, those being the Bronze, the Champagne Silver, and the two yellow gold colors in between them. I was quite disappointed at this, as these weren't particularity cheap for me and I'm ending up with a lot less paint than I paid for.
I've included a photo of the set after my brief usage of the paints where you can see the noticeable dips in each color I mentioned above.
In short, these paints are great. The quality is good and the colors are dazzling, but for the price I paid and the amount I'm getting out of it, I wouldn't deem it worth the gamble. I'm serious about my art supplies, so this occurrence was a big letdown. I'll update my rating if I can get this fixed, but until then this is my score.
To do calligraphy with it, just place 1-2 drops of water and then mix with a small brush. Then use the brush to wipe some color onto a nib. There's a nice video somewhere of this process. See attached photo for color swatches from left to right.
Is it worth it? yessssss, the effect when you or the paper moves is very pretty. It has so many different uses: watercolor illustrations, calligraphy, brush lettering, as accents on printed paper designs (like greeting cards), etc. Just think about it as suuuuper fine glitter you can apply/ paint/ draw with having as much precision as the brush allows and the fluidity of using watercolors.
Video: "value" scale with saturated to less saturated.
Picture: color combinations between metallic colors with 2 different background colors. Metallics used were Inka Gold (IG) and Sterling Silver (SS) and as background Gold Ochre (GO) and Lamp Black (LB).
Roses are with Finetec and the word LOVE and leaves are with PearlEx pigments mixed with gum Arabic. Create your own pans with PearlEx Mica and gum arabic. You can let them dry in a pan and are archival, same as these. One jar of PearlEx Mica at hobby lobby is 5 dollars or a set here on Amazon is like 20 dollars with many more colors. With one jar of PearlEx you can create like 50 pans or more of gold . I promise I'm not paid by them. I like there products and I just hate to see people not know there options.
Let me be a lesson to you. I wasted 30 bucks on these to find out I already had a better product. It
