What beautiful paints.
from Cumberland Bay, NB Canada
Comments about Sakura Koi Watercolor Sketch Box Sets:
The Koi Watercolour Sketch Box are a good choice for watercolour paints, especially when travelling. The colours are beautiful. They appear to be quite transparent in their nature. They flow well on paper. The container is well thought out, including the extra tray for mixing and the very useful waterbrush that is included. My only concern is the size of the paint pan themselves. They seem to be very small and are a tiny bit difficult to use my standard #10 Round brush. I am forced to use something smaller. Outside of that I am pretty happy with my choice in purchasing them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very happy with this product.
Loved the little thumb ring underneath box and the paint performed quite well. Little sponges quite useless, but that's ok - put in my own pieces instead. I was happy with the package.
This is a great buy as a gift for an artist.

I have had one of these sets for many years and use it just about every day for sketches or just having fun painting. I bought this new set for a young lady graduating from high school. She is an artist and this will be handy for her to carry around with her for quick sketches or just painting for fun.

I love these watercolors for on the go and even for at home watecoloring, I absolutely love the water brush that comes with it and I just think that this is an all around well put together pallet especially for beginners!
Love this product!!!
The colors are wonderful they last and last. This is my second purchase just so when I run out of the first set I will have a backup. Highly recommend.

Just what I was looking for to get started in watercolors.

I've been wanting some high-end watercolours for a while now, and I knew this was a good brand. I got the 24 colour set. The colours are super vibrant, and I love the compact size. Along with the included water brush, I like to use a regular bristle brush to get even more saturated tones. The pigments mix really easily and smoothly, too. You can beat the price in any store, which is what sold (hah) me. Very satisfied!!
I love This Set
By Draco, just because I can
from Los Angeles, CA
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.

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.
