Don't hesitate. Buy it. This delicious water color paint set gives you so many options you'll want to play with it every day. For around six bucks you get all these colors! You really can't ask for a better deal. The colors are really bright on the page- even if you are painting over gesso! They only show up chaulky on magazine-like paper. I love them and will probably get another set. (My set came in a broken case and I still kept them- if that tells you anything.) Do it. I know you want them.

I have been painting using this exact set for the last 8 years. Yes, 8 years on one set, creating hundreds of paintings. The colors are bold and vibrant. There is a modestly chalky finish, but something to be expected with watercolor cakes (which I prefer over the tubes). Unlike some whites, this one actually shows up over other colors (surprise!). My white and black were finally starting to get low, so I decided to try a few options: Watercolor pencils, Nicole Crafts watercolors, and Yamasoto watercolors. I would rank these on par with Nicole Crafts watercolors, though modestly more chalky, and better than the other two. I believe this set can be used by the professional, the amateur, or the child with no discrepancy.

If I have one complaint, it is the color selection. There are a dozen shades of red and purple, and four browns (two of which are nearly identical). If you plan to paint flowers, you will be very happy, but I paint animals in landscapes, and the colors were very limiting to me. I still have two colors that I have never used, yet my browns are nearly gone.

If you are serious about watercolors and want to use cakes, I recommend buying this set along with the Nicole Crafts 36-color set. That will give you a wide selection of colors (with a little overlap on colors you use a lot of).

I've been looking for watercolor cakes that aren't chalky like so many are, and these fit the bill perfectly. I am a self-taught artist and use them to create mixed media pieces. These watercolors are high quality, vibrant, and I love the array of colors. They were absolutely perfect for what I needed.

These are amazing. I've already made a lot of art with them and they were very easy to use and I don't think the art turned out too shabby, even for a beginner =) Would recommend!

Ah. I love these paints. They're wonderful to work with, not waxy at all and they last such a long time. I bought two of these 36 color cake sets sets three or four years ago. I am an avid watercolor painter, so I use them a lot and I'm just now needing to get a new set or two and I still have a well amount of paint. I really would recommend these paints if you're looking for a cheap, but very lasting and good quality water color set. (=

I love this paint set. I have used it almost everyday. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to start water-coloring but do not want to spent so much.

My four-year old grandson loves to paint. When I chose the "Loew Cornell 1021095 Simply Art Watercolor Cakes" as part of his birthday gift, I became his instant heroine.

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.

If you are just starting out or perhaps you are in elementary school, this watercolor set will do you some justice. However, if you are looking for another watercolor set for maybe travel purposes or you want to expand your amount of watercolors, this is NOT the set for you. When moving onto higher quality watercolors, the number one thing that is typically looked at is the vibrance of color once the paint has dried. This set, even when you load a lot of color onto your brush, it is impossible to obtain strong, vibrant colors. There are other cheap watercolor sets that actually do the job well (Prang for example). This set looks pretty, and the colors mix okay together, if vibrance isn't an issue for you, take advantage of the price of this set and go ahead and buy it.
