This watercolor set contains a large number of vibrant, unusual colors. The multitude of colors helps keep each cake "clean" since there is no need for my grandson to "mix" colors. The cakes are dry and not waxy; this is a positive since little fingers do not become color-coated when touching the dry watercolors. The generous size of the individual colors should help prevent "running out" of my grandson's current favorite hue - red.
Although I no longer paint, I was impressed with the quality of "Loew Cornell 1021095 Simply Art Watercolor Cakes". Depending on the amount of water you add, the ability to use these watercolors as a translucent wash or as an opaque cream gives one a wide range of creative options.
I definitely recommend "Loew Cornell 1021095 Simply Art Watercolor Cakes" for your own art/craft projects or for your little one's introduction to the joys of painting.
These Loew Cornell SimplyArts are definitely DRY and more opaque watercolor cakes. However, with a bit of water, they form a beautiful, vibrant paint that performs beautifully. Add a little water, you get an opaque creamy paint that lays down thick. Add more water, and the paint grows more translucent.
I use them for art journaling, projects with lots layers, and projects with my daughter. Them seem to do nicely on all surfaces, but because they are so dry to begin with, they require quite a bit of water to get them properly going, and so its recommended to stick to thicker papers.
I think these would be great for student use of non-archival art use. I do know several professional artists that use these regularly and swear by them, so that's good enough recommendation for me. I can't vouch for colorfastness or how bad they do fade over time and exposure to light, but if you are painting things you really want to keep and display for decades, you'll probably already know how lightfast and archival your materials are.
The color palette, however, is AMAZING. And the size of the paints is impressive. To get a range of these colors for the price is a steal. The Big Box stores have them for about five dollars, so you might want to keep that in mind. But even for any price point under ten, these are a great bargain and will REALLY inspire you.
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.
The only negative is that the paper is a little chalky afterwards. But I find most of these cake watercolors do this. And some tube ones. I should mention I am using them to watercolor journal paper. I like how the paper comes out all crinkly and if you blend the right colors, it is a beautiful background.
