Now, I've tried so many paintbrush bathes. I have the round one, I have the glass jar with sponge at the bottom and the list goes on. After using them all I love this one even more. The top piece of it comes off and it's a sealed compartment that can store paint in separated compartments of if you turn it the other way it is an open area the size of the container. That means you can have many paint colors not touching, put the lid on, the colors will stay there and not dry out. I've had acrylic paint (liquitex heavy body and many others) in that compartment for over three weeks and the paint was still damp and not dried out. I live in the Sierra's which is dry too and most of my paints dry quickly when I'm working so I'm proof this container is worth the whole price of the tub. Next, inside the tub is three areas: an areas to clean paint off your brush by moving it back and forth over ridges and the other two compartments can be a second the third rinse of it can be an area to wet your brush with clean water or add water from it to your paints that isn't polluted with any color. I will admit that I've used dirty water before to thin out my paint and I always regret it. However, when I'm painting I don't want to get up and get clean water so those compartments and having three is really wonderful and helps the creativity flow by allowing a better work flow.
If you are debating at getting this unit let me add that it stores well because it's not round which can take up lots of space if you are short on it. Yes, you could use an old cup or up cycle some containers to be your paint brush holder. I have some of those too. However, this container holds extra brushes on the sides so a brush can air dry without touching the anything, it holds paint you are working with and you can seal that paint up so it doesn't dry out, it has multiple compartment, and the plastic material is very durable and a pleasant neutral color. This is a great, great gift for a student painter all the way up to a professional. I've seen this container in the background of many youtube videos with professional painters using.
I primarily got it for Bible journaling as I've just begun and wanted a few different mediums to create art. I tested it out in my sketch book, and the colors really showed up great. You can get varying shades within one color depending on how much or how little amount of water you use.
The brush it comes with isn't that great, but that's really not s problem because I have many others. I know I'll be using this a good bit and look forward to improving my skills.
Was I expecting vibrant, rich, saturated colors? No. I was expecting less than great quality for what I paid (less than the price of a grande coffee).
Instead we got rich colors, in a wide array of color choices. The pods aren't the largest I've seen, but my kids have been using them regularly since Christmas and I'm just now coming back for another set. In comparison to other 'kids' watercolor sets, this set is bright, and rich and vibrant. The others are, well watered down and pale.
This was one of the BEST stocking stuffers my kids got this past year and this set of paints has even gotten me thinking about taking an art class to see what else we can do with water colors.
