Comments about Niji Pearlescent Watercolor Pan Sets:
Too light and very little paint to work with. Glad they are cheaper but very light colors.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My artist friend does amazing designs and highlights on her cards with this paint set. Everyone loves her work. I am not an artist, but this was a gift to her in the hopes it would please her. She loves it!!! So, I purchased a couple more for her, and the rest I am giving to my granddaughters. These paints are such a delight to use. I know of no other company who makes them like this. Hats off to you!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lovely Pearlescent Shine
from Cornelius, NC
I use this product on black cardstock that has been rubber stamped, then embossed with clear embossing powder. Really pretty effects and nice shine after it dries.

I am a very bad watercolorist who simply enjoys the creative expression, and these paints allow that extra measure of lovely.

My students love work with pearlescent colors!
from Inverness, Fl
the colors have a wonderful metal sheen to them.
Great Choice on Black
They are expensive, but I have yet to find anything my students are quite as excited about or that work as well in the "shiny" category. It shows up wonderfully if you rub it a bit. It doesn't dry sticky like some glitter or metallic paints. We've used it for dragons, fireworks, fish, and close-up drawings. I like it best on black. Pairs best with metallic sharpies.

I found that these paints are too sheer by themselves. Painted over a regular water color they had a delicate layer of shimmer. For instance, I was painting a ceiling of hung and billowing Indian scarves where they were back lit. Brushing fine layer of a pearlescent over one of the scarves billowing down gave it just the right luminescence. You can see it on the blue scarf. I have not used other pearlescent products and so cannot compare these to others. I wouldn't recommend this as your only watercolor palette.

Good for a very sheer wash of glitter
from London, KY
I saw this product in a tutorial so I went looking for it. For the price I figured, "Might as well!" and I was neither disappointed nor surprised. I guess I was hoping for something with more pigment, like a regular watercolor paint but shimmery when dry. This is not that. I haven't used it by itself, but on top of a wash as a finishing touch it adds a nice, subtle glimmer which you only really see if you hold it the right way towards the light. It otherwise acts as a really weakly-pigmented watercolor. Tip: give the paint a minute to absorb the water before trying to paint with it, otherwise you won't get anything on your brush.

Love these pearlescent watercolors
By Pamlico Lady
I saw Lindsay the Frugal Crafter use these and I ordered them to paint some hummingbirds and dragonflies. They turned out sooo pretty. Love the shimmer it gives. I'm glad I ordered them.
