Comments about Finetec Artist Mica Watercolors:
These mica packed paints are amazing. I realize that they are a bit pricy, however combined with all manners of other paints they create shimmer from cardstock to ink pads to pens (copic and others). I have all the sets and love them all equally
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I've seen these used by others on YouTube and loved the results which is why I got them. I played a little and love the shimmer and coverage. Can be intense or not so much. I can't wait to use them in my next card project.
Gold Watercolors Really Sparkle
from Seattle, Wa
I have seen other artists using these on Youtube and have had them bookmarked for a while now. I finally broke down and bought them and I really am impressed. Good coverage for a watercolor. Look is a lot like gold leaf and that is mostly why I bought them. Overall I am very satisfied.

Shimmer for days!
from Kansas City, MO
I find it beneficial to use these on a darker background to have them pop. This is an amazing investment if you have a use for them.

Don't even bother with other types of gold mica paint. Excellent for calligraphy and flourishing.

I'm a budding watercolorist and these are absolutely gorgeous. They do take a bit longer to activate so I would suggest dropping a bit of water on them before you plan on using them. Let it soak for a few mins. After that they're surprisingly opaque. I'm so excited to explore what these can do and I have pieces planned just so I can use them. 10/10 will buy again.
Beautiful and highly pigmented
from Plainfield IN
I have a cheap set of pearlescent watercolors and the difference between those and these is incredible. The iridescent colors are my favorite and show up really well on both black and white paper! Great for both students and professionals, but if you are buying for a younger kid the cheaper ones work just fine.

I had reviewed several utube videos on this paint matched to competors and this looked like the best color saturation available. The cost was a little more than i like to pay but i went ahead anyway. I got the pearl colors and they didnt dissapoint at all. For best coverage wet the pallet and let it sit a few minutes. Colors show best on black paper. Tried it on a heavy black ink background but the paint didnt stick well on the waxy surface. The only draw back with the pearl colors is the size of each pod is smaller than i had hoped. It kind of balances out since there is more variety than the gold set.

These watercolors activate really well and can be easily made opaque which I absolutely love. It looks like ink when it's laid down and has a really nice shimmery finish. I probably like the Arabic gold best.
from Sandy, UT
I like these mica watercolors because the shimmer they produce is subtle and rich looking, not garish like some mica/metallic products.
