Great Watercolor Trays!
By Picasso's Pal
from Geismar, Louisiana
The Prang 8 color is a good amount of colors and affordable. The quality of the color is good, too. I tried another brand, and those colors were to soft--and too many. The Prang 8 color watercolors are good, basic colors to teach middle school students. And, they are in good amounts. The other brand had small amounts of paint. Prang has a good amount. And, for advanced color studies, I'd recommend the 16 watercolors. Affordable and a good quality.
A great pallet for emerging artists!
from Flint, MI
I like that this pallet had many color options for students to paint with. The colors are vivid and easy to use. However the paint does not last long in an art room. These pallets last maybe 3 projects wth 3 classes per grade level.
The best watercolors
from Key West, FL
These are my favorite watercolors set. The semi moist pan never dries up and cracks. My student love the vibrancy of the colors. I will always buy these for my classroom. Perfect for K-5 students.
Not good for high school
I should have investigated these watercolors before purchasing them for my high school students. They were truly awful. The paint was very soupy; as though the binder was made of corn starch. The paper dried hard and brittle, and very warped. The colors ran out in one small, simple project. I would never order them again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Can't replace colors
from Downingtown, PA
I wish the colors were replaceable. My students tend to use some colors more than others and I like to replace those. But the individual colors do not pop out like other watercolor sets I have bought in the past.
Merchant response: Thank you for your review! The Prang Semi-Moist Watercolor Pan Sets have the replaceable pans, but these Washable sets do not. If we can be of further assistance, please feel welcome to call 1-800-933-2542 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
good for student work
from Seal Cove, Maine
One of the best aspects of these water color sets is the quality of the brush included. It has a nice taper and a plastic tube to protect the bristle. Makes a nice line that a kid can control. Sometimes in a set that's affordable for a group of child students, the brush is clunky and unusable. The intensity of the colors is good, too.
By Gennie the Teacher
from San Mateo, CA
I received a grant for high quality art supplies for my 5 year-old students. We were all delighted when we experimented with the watercolors in this pack. I was especially impressed with the glittery paints! When they dried, you could clearly see the beautiful glitter. It was great!
By Orange Couch
from Granville, OH
The kids are so happy every time they open these! The colors are simple and easy to mix; a nice palate for all young artists!

Hugely disappointed in drop in quality
By Angie, Art Therapist
from Baltimore. MD
I am an art therapist who has used these watercolors with patients and clients for several years and have been really pleased with the cost, quality, and especially the ability to replace individual trays. recently I have noticed a HUGE drop in quality. First, I noticed the chance in the quality of the brush that comes with the set. It used to come with a good-sized natural bristled brush that was surprisingly good in quality. Recently it has been replaced by a small brush whose bristles fall out constantly, and this has been a source of frustration for those who attempt to use it. Then, I started noticing changes in the paints themselves. In areas where the paint was applied densely, the area remains sticky, tacky, gooey and NEVER dries. If you try to place the painting in a portfolio, it sticks to the other work and becomes ruined. I am sad to say I can no longer use this product. I am also frustrated that I have wasted so much money stocking up on these paints that I used to love so much.
