This is great watercolor. Lightfast and colorfast. Mixes well. Easy to clean up. Leaves hands virtually free of stains. Beautiful, pure color that maintains its brilliance for decades.
Vibrant, translucent watercolors
This is my first time working with Dr. PH Martin's watercolors. I love the intensity, and it is the only watercolor I've run into where I can erase pencil marks after laying down color. The intensity and liquid form is a bit of a time-saver, but the paint is easily watered down if needed and can be revived if it dries solid on the palette. #sweepstakes
I am in love.
By Katie Kat
from Logan, Ut
Well, I am obsessed with these paints. So easy to mix and the pigment is to die for. I am already planning on buying the full sets!
Looking forward to working more with these
from Warrenville, IL
I love the vibrancy and consistency. They mixed very well. A joy to work with. I only purchased three primary colors but will probably pick up a set in the future.
very good pigments
I am a scrimshaw artist. The marks I make are minuscule,and I need a pigment that is finely ground, and intense ic hue. the Hydrus inks fit the bill!. Ive used them for years and the permanency of the pigments is so important. I have not bee disappointed yet.

I prefer using Dr. Ph Martin's Hydrus Liquid Watercolor over tube and pans-the colors are vivid and true, mixing is easy and a little goes a long way. Blick has the best prices for all products, orders are packed secure, shipments arrive on time-I can always depend on Blick for quality and great Customer Service-Thank you.

Fabulous and flexible
By Chuck's Ghost
from Austin, Texas
I use these liquid watercolors to produce abstracts. I love the fluidity, mixability, depth of color as well as the ability to mix with water to create lighter shades. There are a couple of colors with which I am disappointed. RawUmber never seems to mid completely and Cobalt Violet's pigments seem to clump at full strength and creates little bars and floaters of concentrated pigment regardless of how much shaking the bottle receives.

Vibrant and worth every penny
from San Francisco, CA
I have been using pan and tube watercolors for a couple of months now and decided to give liquid watercolors a try. Dr. Ph. Martin's seemed to be the go-to for many artists I follow on social media, and I think they are definitely worth it. In terms of color these are super vibrant and concentrated. I got the Cobalt Blue and use it for many ocean-inspired studies, and am considering getting a set of the other colors for more of my floral and landscape works (which lend themselves well to vibrant colors). Although these are not as portable as pan or tube watercolors, at home they do a great job as long as the palette is on a desk (level surface) and can be left out to dry if being used/re-wetted for later. I also imagine these are good for large paintings, as a little goes a long way.
