I've been using Cotman paints for a while now and thought it would be a good idea to try some artist's grade paints and went for these based off a YouTube recommendation. Holy cow do these hold up!
Like most watercolors, a little goes a long way with these full pans! The fact that they are full pans and jam packed with color tells me they will last a while compared to my Cotmans, which are half pans. And these paints are poured paints which means less fillers, which is hard to get at this price.
They are so vibrant and pigmented and for the most part translucent. You will find some of the yellows being more opaque though but I find that to be better use for me. That being said though, some of the colors I did find a little hard to paint with because they were almost too translucent-like and not very pigmented, like the Yellow Ochre and Ceruleum Blue.
The case itself is awesome providing not one but two (large) palletes for mixing! The pans are not set and stable in the case though so I would not recommend it for traveling but perfect for a desk or table.
I also really love that the company includes they're own blank swatch card. I know I have some OCD tidbits about making my own because of my need for equilateral symmetrical parts and they took all that hard work out for me and left me to do the fun part 😁.
All in all if you're looking for artists paints in a budget you can't ask for a better set.
These are great for serious students and artists who want to work in watercolour with good tools. This set can teach you about the property of different pigments and colour mixing. This can also be used for work that you want to reproduce because the colours are quite vivid. I wasn't sure how lightfast the colours are but I found some lightfastness ratings and the pigment used on the wrapper of the pans. I don't know a lot about this brand so if you want to be sure you could use brand with more documented lightfastness ratings like Winsor & Newton, Senneiler, Schmincke, Maimeriblu etc. Having said that these are pretty easy to work with and come in a nice plastic case - which I think is the same one the large Cotman set comes in. For the price this is really quite good.
I purchased 36 colors box. It came in a white sturdy plastic box with an extra palette and a blank test card watercolor paper.
The unwrapping of all colors took me a while :) The finally-prepared box felt good and kept colors fairly well in place with only a "slight" rattle sound when shaken. The box set feels better than Van Gogh when closed, both in design, and as a sturdy containment. VG box design seems to shake and rattle all half-pans around even when lid is closed. I place a felt blanket on top of VanGogh 18-color set to keep pans in place when moving.
These pans are twice as large as Windsor&Newton Cotman Half-pans, and a bit softer. They are not like bricks, but rather like dried color goo poured in each pan. The white plastic pans don't look "full" with flat top. They have a slight dipped surface, perhaps due to drying and shrinking of original wet paint goo.
These colors are rich! One droplet of water on a pan will soften the underlying paint to a mud/mush consistency. Beware, dipping your brush in that mud puddle will most probably lift far more paint than you need for your planned surface area. and so applying that brush to your surface will lay excessively thick and saturated layer of paint. It worked better for me by first having a large water reserve on palette and then dissolve a tip-touch of color mud in that, which resulted in enough paint for a large transparent area wash.
All colors are extremely saturated (except a brown or two). They can offer a pleasant gradient from super dark values to extra light for each color.
Having had and worked with lower quality watercolors all my life, my first impression laying colors down on supplied blank index card was ecstatic! Especially Blue/Red/Green ranges each surprised me and had a shock and awe "zing" factor to them while wet. When dried, colors stayed faithful to the wet forms.
Dry paint in pan feels like semi-hard Caramel toffee if clawed with finger nail. The 36-color palette seemed nice and a capable selection. I prefer additional few ocre and skin tones, as my work nowadays portrays a lot of human elements. So I am supplementing this with few W&N pro artist tubes for now.
Almost half of colors are opaque, but almost all colors can be diluted and used as transparent for glazing and washes.
Some of the dark-valued colors (few blue and brown) had dark fine pigment grains in the mix which did not quite dissolve with rest of smooth watery paint. When dry, they actually looked cool as an effective texture.
I think I will extremely enjoy these watercolors.
Beautiful, rich colors that blend easily
Plenty of room for mixing colors
Full pans that will last a long time
Good selection of colors
A paintbrush can fit inside the box
Most go on smoothly without granulation (which is mostly preference)
One of the hinges on my box broke, so the lid has to be constantly readjusted
The pans sometimes stick to the mixing lid if it's closed while wet
Not all of the pans were full, but these were mostly colors that I don't use often and so overlooked
Overall, I'm happy with my purchase. It gives me a nice range of colors to choose from while I build up my other watercolors.
