Style Name: Sketchers Pocket Box Verified Purchase
I bought these as an upgrade to my student grade reeves brand watercolors. I haven't done much with them yet, but I am excited to start playing with them. One of the pictures are all of the colors swatched out, which I plan to laminate and keep in my box. Another picture is The box compared to a standard gift card. As you can see the box is just a tad bigger than the gift card - it truly is pocket sized!

The brush is nothing to get excited over. It is just a small round or liner-type brush. I probably won't use it, as it gives me hand cramps since the handle is so tiny.

I would like to address several complaints I have seen.

First, with the watercolor cakes coming out of the pans. I simply took the cake out of the pan, put a big drop of water underneath, and stuck the paint cake back in. After a bit the water makes the paint a bit gummy, so I simply gave it a firm press, and I haven't had a problem since.

Another complaint is that the paint pans don't stay in the case. Well, that is true, but again I have a simple fix. I took the plastic pans of paint out of the box, and added just a dab of hot glue, then gave them a firm press back into the palette. This worked well. I tried prying them out, and they stick. When they are gone, you can simply take a pair of pliers and pull out the empty pan and replace. On my other set I used a piece of double sided tape that I cut in half length wise, then stuck the pans back in. I think I like it better then the hot glue. The tape holds well, but the pans can be pulled out just simply using the end of a brush to pry it out. Sticky tack/blue tack/museum putty works well too.

Because these pans are sold as open stock, meaning you can replace one color at a time, I would not suggest getting too carried away with super glueing the pans into the palette.

Style Name: Compact Set
I'm an adult watercolorist and author of an ebook on starting out in watercolors. I've purchased and used more than two dozen little watercolor kits over the years, several Winsor & Newton models as well as several competitors. This is one of the best. I have and like this precise model as well as its more expensive "Artist's" version. (With the premium line of watercolor paints in the half pans). Both are great. The Artist's version is probably my very favorite, best-liked kit. The same, common design, albeit plastic, is both compact and efficient. The low Amazon price here is just phenomenal, just a little more than the W&N Sketcher's Kit in Cotman. The W&N 'Cotman' line of paints, while said not as good as the premium "Artist's" line, is still quite excellent, plenty good enough.
The price is so low, it might qualify as a toy in some minds. However, the fact is, it's plenty good enough for any adult wishing to get started, properly, in watercolors. Heartedly recommended, for young and old.

Style Name: Field Box
This little self-contained unit can carry just as many pans as my old paint set (after making a minor modification) plus has its own built-in water supply, an improved brush and a small sponge. On top of this it is both more compact and seems much sturdier (I was always afraid of breaking the old one). If you're going to be painting on the go this is almost certainly the set for you.

I'm primarily writing this review to say that my set actually came with a white, rather than a black, which the other customers were complaining about. So either Winsor & Newton came to the correct conclusion on their own and rectified their mistake, or the seller I received my set from had a different variation, though everything else matches the listing. (for reference, I bought from Hyatt's)

That said, I found the packaging/size/amount of product to be perfect - they each come separately wrapped in their own detachable bins within the palette, making swapping colors and cleaning easy, and each individual plastic bin has the corresponding color printed on the side, in case you forget what color it contained originally. The posted measurements are accurate; double check them to make sure that's what you want before you buy it. The tiny blocks of are about the size of a single lego, which is actually plenty. The tiny brush is actually a two-part, with an long cap that forms the rest of the brush handle. I'm not sure why they bothered, because the assembled brush still fits in the slot. I suppose it protects the brush to some degree?

All things said, if I were to lose my set, I would buy it again. In fact, I am extremely tempted to buy another one now, just because it's adorable, particularly if you have an odd love for miniatures. In fact, you may find yourself tempted to take up miniature painting now that you have a miniature paint set.

Style Name: Painting PLUS 24 Half Pan Set Verified Purchase
I like the color selection. However, be prepared tp spend a lot of time putting together. Each color is indivually wrapped and most colors will not just fall out to do this. The plastic pans are clipped together in groups of four. So you have to pry out the four pan clip, then pry out each indivual pan, unwrap and put back in. I do like that each plastic pan is marked with the name of the color and it's number. It took about two hours to get it ready, so don't plan on using right out of the box.
