I did buy it again.
from Lubbock, TX
Use this set all the time to do small demonstration watercolors for my class. I am able to obtain rich, luminous colors and have done some larger paintings which have been in national juried shows using these little cake colors exclusively. They last longer than one might expect.

Surprisingly versatile red!
By Robert Sloan
from Russellville, Arkansas
I lucked and got a bargain price on the Sennelier Mini eight color pocket watercolor set. It intrigued me for its size and since I liked Sennelier soft pastels, I decided to have a go. Wow! The only thing that disturbed me was that it has only one red, it looked like an orange-red. I usually like to also have a purple cast red, extra points if it's not genuine Alizarin and so lightfast. Well! I had the happy surprise that French Vermilion behaves a lot like Quinacridone Coral. It has enough cool undertones that it will bring out a lovely violet with either Cinereous Blue or Ultramarine. With that, the little set was wonderful. Color's strong, it picks up easily, the Sap Green has a gorgeous hue and the bright light yellow green is very strong. The single yellow isn't so orange cast that it won't make bright greens, it's just a good primary yellow. Best of all, Burnt Umber and Paynes Grey for darkeners mean I'm not limited to Ivory Black, having warm and cool darks in mixing helps me a lot.The quality of the pan watercolors is excellent. I'm now interested in getting a larger set, but that little box fits in my shirt pocket and is getting some good use!

brilliant color provides a wide range of tints
from Elkhart, IN USA
Strong, brilliant color comes off the pan easily, probably due to the paint's honey content. I see much the same effect with M. Graham watercolors, which also incorporate honey. Because the color is strong they dilute to a wide range of tints as you add more water. You can easily go from strong, dark tones to light, effervescent tints with almost any of the colors. This is going to be an excellent set for plain air painting next spring when the temperatures and light graduate from our cold gloomy winter!This is my first metal paint box and having something that was not made of plastic was a strong incentive toward buying this set. My plastic palettes always stain after a while and it was irritating me quite a bit. I'm hoping that this coated metal box stays clean.That said, there are too many colors in this set for my taste. This was the 12 color set plus 6 additional 'free' colors. That's too many for my tiny aging brain to deal with and, to be honest, there are a couple of colors for which my own personal taste says 'ick'. I have no need for black, for example, and it's going to be replaced by Windsor & Newton's gorgeous Transparent Yellow before we exit our cozy cave into the real world. I'll get it down to 12 at some point and then I'll be happy. Probably. For a while. ;)Mike

Comes with quality brushes, and a porcelain mixing tray. The color selection of the half pans is both generous and highly useful. Unlike other sets I've purchased, this set does not contain colors I typically won't use; like Chinese white. The wooden case has a durable nylon strap with a Velcro tab to close. Great to use in the field or on vacation trips. You will need a water supply for field use; possibly brushes with their own water reservoir. Colors are rich and vibrant. Great deal when purchased on sale from Dick Blick. Ordered with regular shipping and received within a week in perfect condition.
Excellent mix of paints! All my favorites are there. Its beautiful, and easy to carry. All you need is a cup of water.
Convenient and Great Selection of Colors
from Midsouth, USA
I have the black metal case set of pan colors. The set has a fabulous selection of colors. And I was amazed to be able to fit a selection of brushes and a pencil inside the box with the paints and it still closes securely! This came in very handy today when we had a few hours of sunshine and warmer temperatures and I needed a set of paints I could grab and get out in a hurry to take advantage of the nice weather for some plein air work.I have no complaints at all about Sennelier paints. Great set!
Love The Colors, Would Like The Boxes To Be Attached
The paints in this set are great and the brushes and palette,etc. included are great. I love Sennelier paints and this is a really good selection. However, the logistics of a nesting set just aren't working out. They only have a belt with a velcro fastener to hold the 3 boxes together. So if I want to carry the set I have to put it back in the cardboard box the set come in.If you only want to set this on a desk or table and never move it around it works fine. But it isn't useful for travel or carrying around even inside a room. It is really nice but heavy and I wish the boxes were attached! I'm trying to think of a way I can attach them so I can move the set easily but can still use each section. It is a beautiful set of boxes but I can't pick them up without them coming apart.
Simply the best!

I'm a portrait artist and these watercolors are simply the best for transparent layering.The colors are rich and the texture is extremely smooth. Absolutely love them.

Sennelier Watercolor set
from Philadelphia, PA
I like all my supplies contained in one box, and what a beautiful wooden box this is! Excellent saturated color paint, nice brushes and I always like using the porcelain palette. I keep this paintbox right on my worktable at all times, it keeps me painting!
A stunning glimpse into the making of Sennelier L'Aquarelle, Honey Based Artists' Watercolor. Continuing its traditional color palette used by French Impressionist painters, Sennelier has now expanded the Sennelier Artists' Watercolor line to 98 colors to include more rich darks.
