Perfect for artists who love bright colors
By Kym Min
from Greenville, NC
Comments about Dr. Ph. Martin's Hydrus Fine Art Liquid Watercolor Sets:
I watched a youtuber use hydrus along with watercolors to achieve bright colors, and from then on I've wanted to try them. I finally got to order them, and I feel like I don't know how I lived without them. For the artist who wants to achieve bright colors, these are perfect. The sets give you a good variety of colors - colors that you can combine and get more colors from. You can't go wrong with any set, but I recommend set 1 because it has primary colors. Sure, I'd get all sets because the colors are so beautiful. They will last you a long time, since a little drop goes a long way, so it is worth the investment. If there is leftover paint in your palette, you can use it again after it dries, just as you would use watercolor. They're really amazing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Beautiful clear colors
from New York State
This set of watercolor produces brilliant, clear hues! Nothing else compares. Although the bottles may appear small, they can be used for quite a while. I haveused them in the classroom. They can dry and be whetted the next day. My only concern is that older sets have sediment on the bottom of the jar. I am not sure if this is normal.

I love these watercolors. The colors are brilliant and beautiful and I love that they are lightfast and archival so I don't have to worry about my artwork fading over time. I have used these for years and also have several of their other products. I have contacted the company directly a couple times over the years with questions and they are incredibly friendly and helpful.
love Love LOVE these watercolors!!!
from Oxnard, CA
I have used cake, tube, and liquid watercolors at all price points and quality. While these are a bit on the pricey side, they are worth EVERY penny! You need very little to get a lot of coverage. The colors are rich and vibrant- just delicious! And they are truly colorfast. Once they are dry you can paint right next to or over previous progress without any bleeding or leeching of color. My very favorites!
Dick Blick is great and the Watercolors are, too

Fantastic! Unlike any other water colors I've ever used. Acts similar to India ink but slightly different.

Not the best
This product separates and gets grainy. It is almost impossible to get the paint mixed, all the shaking in the world does not remix all the separated paint back into the liquid. It's too thin to dilute and too runny in some cases. I did not like the fact that some of the droppers do not even work making the paint even harder to use. I am going back to pans.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
