The included collapsible Koi Waterbrush is incredible. (I also recommend Niji waterbrushes with this set for more brush size variety.) A waterbrush is basically a hollow plastic tube with a brush screwed on at the end. You fill the hollow tube with water and squeeze it while you're painting or mixing your colors, and it automatically moistens the brush tip. No need for a separate water jar! They're great for traveling and everyday use.
This set is the only thing I take when I travel now. Lightweight, compact and cute as a cat's nose. Paired up with my Moleskine watercolor notebook, I'm set to paint wherever I go.
The retail price for the 24 piece palette was quite high in store but I was able to use a coupon. Even so, the price here is better. Why did I choose this one? Well the reviews were fantastic and the removable palette seemed handy. You could remove it completely and put it off to the side or place it to the right or left (see picture). I love this feature. The colors were described as pigmented and I would agree with that. The pan needs just a little water to be able to lift the color. And I've been able to mix colors no problem. In my picture you'll see some dark color mixed on my palette. This is a mixture of utlramarine, Crimson lake, and yellow ochre. I use this mix to get a perfect shadow color (as seen on the lemon picture).
The palette itself its a fairly study plastic palette. It does stain over time but that is to be expected with any plastic palette. The sides of the palette have little strips of yellow foam that can be used to wipe off the brush. I find these to just be ok. I prefer to carry a small cloth or napkin with me instead. And it is possible to store the included water pen inside the palette if you keep the little black stopper (seen in the open palette photo) to hold the water in the tube. Unless of course your destination has a water source or you carry water with you. And the included water brush? I have been fairly impressed. The brush hold water with next to no leaking. I would say that it is about a medium water brush so it might be useful to pick up a small brush was well for detail work. My brush has taken a lot of abuse as I lost the cap during my travels but the brush still works great. I used it (along with a smaller waterbrush) on the lemon painting.
For what this palette is, I am extremely impressed. Sakura designed a highly functional and portable palette with fantastic watercolors for a great price. I made the right choice for my starter palette. I will say that in the future I plan to invest in a palette that have removable paint pans. This will allow more customization and allow me to use the palette for years to come. The only downfall of this palette is that once the pans on my most used colors are empty, I will either attempt to fill with tube paint or have to buy a new palette altogether. Given that this palette is so affordable, I certainly wouldn't be opposed to buying a new palette, but it would seem pretty wasteful.
Here are the colors:
Permanent Yellow Deep
Cadmium Red Hue
Cobalt Blue Hue
Permanent Green Deep
1. Size makes it not only nice for trips, hiking, and quick set up and clean up at HOME.
2 Beautiful vivid colors with great texture and easy clean up.
3. Only water needed is in the brush and lasts forever depending on size of art paper; quick cleaning as you change colors.
4. Tiny pallet attaches easily. cleans easily,& can paint all day without cleaning etc.
5. Thumb holder on bottom great concept and so necessary.
6. Back can be used as small tripod for painting.
7. Lightweight, and miniature size, but able to produce large and professional work.
Wonderful for relatives and friends, as gifts so appreciated. I give the designer of the water brush/pen 5 stars and the designer
of the clever little set another 5 stars. Have painted for some 75 years with all mediums, but love this one, more than my professional oil painting materials! Hard to believe this can be produced and sold at this low price. I am now in hospice after a very active life, and am now making my very own greeting cards, and busy beyond belief! I should be selling them since they
are accepted like hotcakes! AMAZON is MY STORE for MORE!
