I love This Set
By Draco, just because I can
from Los Angeles, CA
Comments about Sakura Koi Watercolor Sketch Box Sets:
I got the 24 box set and I just love it, the colors look very bright and most are transparent. I think there are a few that may be slightly opaque but not by much. I compared them to my Cotman colors and they honestly look very similar. The brush is not hard to use but it could be that I'm just used to using cheaper ones. It's very compact and fits in my purse, this is so much better than the big bulky plastic box I had to carry. I'm not sure if holding it is comfortable since I have a tendency to sit down when I sketch so I don't particularly deal with that. The colors trays are very close to each other so it can get dirty, I'm very careful about dirtying my colors so I haven't gotten mines dirty at all and I actually like how close they are but if that's not your thing this set might not work for you. The 24 set is slightly bigger than a Nintendo 3DS XL. Also the color trays are made of somewhat flimsy plastic and the sponges get wet rather quickly. A Pentel Aqua brush fits in the brush tray easily, I actually stuffed some extra watercolor pans in the place for storing the brush since I carry quite a few brushes anyways.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is the second time I purchased this Sakura Koi water color travel set. The first time it was for myself to replace Cotman set. There were features on this set that I really like, such as the pallet that attaches to the side, and the thumb hold underneath. The bush with it's water chamber inside takes a little getting used to, but once I played with it a little while I like the control it offers. My niece is taking a trip this spring so I ordered the same set for her.

Couldn't get any better
from Southern California
I love it. The colors are beautiful, the brush is nice. It's all so cool and worth the price
from New York, New York
These watercolours are amazing, and have so much pigment for only student grade watercolours. They're pretty inexpensive and have such a nice design. It's a wonder why I haven't bought them sooner. The only flaws that I find are I wish the sponges were a bit more absorbent since I find myself using spare paper towels more often than the sponges. I also wish the pallet was a bit bigger and the pans weren't as close together, although it does make sense since this is a travel sketch box. I'd love it if Sakura made a larger and improved set of these to use at home!! I've already recommended this set to some friends :)
from Pembroke Pines, FL
I do a lot of the more simple watercolor paintings, and I'm still growing and learning how to use the paint but this worked wonderfully for me. The colors come out spectacular and I liked how it came with its own palette and brush. I've never used one of these brushes before, and I do like them, however the brush tip kind of kept wanting to slip out whenever I cleaned it. Overall I loved the product.
Great product and service
from Lodi, Ohio
These watercolored provide a beautiful pigment when combined with small amounts of water, or a beautiful wash when combined with large amounts of water. It all depends on the pigment you're looking to achieve.
Awesome starter kit!

Can fit anywhere and great quality!
Color me happy!
I use the colors to fill in adult coloring books and to help me or while learning a new discipline on YouTube from jayart! I love the way you only need the slightest bit odd water on the imbeciles aquabrush. Yes! They include a wonderful little brush that you fill with water into its barrel! And that feature alone is worth the wait! Love this kit! The only way to make it better is to include the pentel small aquabrush that you can perform script brush lettering with! Again the vivid colors from each of the colortrays are spectacular! I really love koi!
i love the color hues, and works great with a water brush
