Innovative in their formulation, Mission Gold are the first watercolors ever manufactured that are free of silicone dioxide. This thickening agent inhibits transparency as it encapsulates pigments and creates a granular effect on paper. Mission Gold Watercolors are free of this agent, naturally viscous and unsurpassed for their clarity and luminosity. Created from only the finest pigments available, these colors are matured in traditional Korean pots until they achieve maximum brilliance. The result is pure, intense color that is lightfast with minimal color shift. The absence of a thickening agent also means that the concentrated colors disperse beautifully, even on a dry palette and paints left to dry for months are easily lifted. When mixed with a little Titanium White, Mission Gold can replace gouache making it ideal for design work. Set of twenty-four (24) colors inlcuding:W501 Chinese White, W521 Lemon Yellow, W523 Permanent Yellow Deep, W518 Yellow Orange, W151 Permanent Red, W512 Permanent Rose, W513 Rose Madder, W551 Opera, W553 Permanent Violet, W541 Cerulean Blue, W542 Cobalt Blue No.1, W543 Peacock Blue, W545 Ultramarine Deep, W546 Indigo, W536 Viridian, W535 Hookers Green, W534 Sap Green, W561 Yellow Ochre No.1 Transparent, W569 Raw Sienna, W564 Burnt Sienna, W570 Burnt Umber, W565 Red Brown, W566 Vandyke Brown, W502 Ivory Black.

I got the 24 piece but if I could do it again I think I'd stretch for the bigger set + palette since it was only about $20 more
I bought these paint a while ago simply because I am always exploring for new watercolor paint. and these did not disappoint!
I have a variety of artist paint tubes, Graham, Winsor Newton, Sennelier, Daniel Smith, schmincke, Holbein. Mission Gold are up their in my book in terms of artist quality. While I understand that many watercolorist can be skeptic of new brands, I want to remind that all paints start some where, and you should not just instantly dismiss these just because their still new in the market, give them a genuine chance.
They have intense saturation,and all of the colors blend seamlessly well when it comes to mixing. They bleed wonderfully when working Wet into Wet technique. which is important for flow and creating gradients in watercolor.
They are also a great price, that you cant genuinely beat! If you were to buy this many tube in any other artist brand, you will quickly be spending over 100 easily.
Overall, for experience water colorist, looking to try new paint? Definitely give these a spin. all of there colors mix wonderfully and seamlessly are are vibrant even when creating dark color values, give them a spin!
beginners but looking to invest in great paint with out breaking the bank? Definitely get this. I have been recommending this product to friends who are wanting to dabble into watercolor and have a great selection of color. with out being forced to only buy 2-3 tubes which easily adds up 30 dollars with other brands.
I am already looking forward to investing in the future on getting their Mission Gold Class Pure Pigment Watercolors Set. And see what potential those paints hold. Since single pigment is a big deal in the watercolor world for when it comes to color theory mixing. water colorist are always looking for single color pigment tubes for clean color mixing and color intensity.
