Grumbacher Transparent Orange
from Sacramento, CA
Comments about Grumbacher Finest Artists' Watercolors:
Wish it came with a warning to be mindful when opening the tube. When took the lid off the first time to make a small test swatch, at least a third of the pigment popped out and got all over the place. Most of it was not salvageable. Got all over the place, my hands, clothing, paper, table all saturated with it. Beautiful color but I'm bummed I lost so much of it. I've never had something major like this happen before, and I have a LOT of tubes of paint from almost all brands. Use caution when taking off the lid.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Huge Grumbacher Fan
I love Grumbacher for a number of paint types. Even their Academy line works well for me. I used WC tube paint when in college 40 some years ago and this WC paint seems to be as good now as then. I have other tubes of Grumbacher Finest as well as Academy and I love the action of both. For the price the Academy line is a great value in my opinion and worthy of professional attention when on a budget with good lightfastness in almost all colors, but the Finest has great lightfastness qualities and for me is right up there in quality with some other "prestiged" brands that give you 7 mls for the price of a 14 ml GF. These tube paints when dry are very easily reconstituted with as much vibrancy coming from being dry as they are coming from the tube. I will be adding to my collection. Thank you Blick for making them so available.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The best watercolors on the market
from Millbrook, AL
The Chinese white is opaque and holds up well used by itself or when mixing with other colors. As a professional watercolor artist, I have used Grumbacher watercolors for over 30 years and have been more than pleased with the results. All of my paintings still are as vibrant in color as they were the day I painted them. This is a wonderful product.

Good Strong Colors
from Cambria CA
I'm a beginner at water color painting but find these colors to be strong and dilute well. I am using only Alizarin Crimson, Aurelolin Yellow, Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna at my instructors direction. I have learned to mix these four colors to make any color I need. Equal parts of the Blue and the Burnt Sienna make a very strong black.
I bought them as a requested birthday gift. He loves them and paints often using only this brand. Thalo blue was more aqua than the picture showed though.

I've spent years in watercolor and needed some new colors. I adored the color variety within Grumbacher, so I thought I would give them a try. They proved to be my least favorite watercolors I have EVER purchased. Reeves cheap $12 sets are a better buy than these. The paints were gummy, smudgy, and poured out of the tubes. I have never been so displeased. The colors are brilliant, yet the constancy wretched. I was unimaginably disappointed with this purchase and will probably never buy them again. Corman, Winsor, and Utrecht are all MUCH better buys.
