I purchased two tubes of this watercolor paint, the luminous bright rose and bright violet. The paint is brilliant, intense, transparent and lovely to work with. I'm very pleased so far.

Good cost watercolor
from cedar rapids ia
Creates good color. Have enjoyed the cost and workings of the watercolor. Hasn't disappointed me yet.

I was attracted to this line because it seems to be a very good value, and it offers some unusual and/or unique pigments and formulations. All the colors I ordered seem well made and they handle well and look good in use. Some of the pedestrian colors, such as Ivory black are just fine and very inexpensive, while the 'unique' colors live up to expectations and are delightful. The opera, for example, is as good as any I've seen, comparing to any artist level version. And the shadow green provides a green-tone version of Payne's gray, which is not something I've seen from other paint lines.I think I will order a wider selection of these.

They are great watercolors to work with. I especially love their Burnt Sienna and Light Red. A good value!

Great Paint, but...
from Wauseon, OH
The paints that I bought were really nice. However, you have to be really careful if you want to buy only single pigment paints. The ones I bought that I would recommend are: Prussian Blue, Mineral Violet, Chinese White, and Raw Umber. I would also recommend looking at the other colors; I didn't check them all out.Permanent Yellow Deep has only fair to good lightfastness, and Brilliant Orange contains two pigments.If you make sure you get lightfast single pigments, you will get one of the best deals on DB.

These are great watercolors with great covering quality when needed plus beautiful transparency when desired. The colors seem rich and vibrant, the paints handle beautifully and are a great value. I don't know about their light fastness, yet, so only time will tell. I bought the 32 tube set, and so far I really like using them. I like a combination of wet on wet, with some wet over dry transparencies, and so far these paints have served my needs very well. I think they are a great value.

I will buy this product again
from Wichita, KS
I am somewhat new to watercoloring but I really like this brand. It mixes easily with water and the colors look great. I have only used a couple of other brands, but these mix so much better than the other famous brands.

Beautiful, but BEWARE impermanent colors
from new york city
I teach watercolor, and am always looking for inexpensive but good quality paints for my beginners. The price of Shin Han can't be beat, BUT over half of the colors use impermanent, non-lightfast pigments (which means they either fade badly or turn brown over time, when exposed to daylight. Check out the Watercolor Pigments pages on the site handprint.com for full pigment info.)That said, the lightfast single-pigment paints (mostly phthalo colors and reds) do handle well and look good when dry, although the darker colors tend to dry quite a bit lighter than Winsor-Newton or M. Graham paints...which to me are the best of the best. But if you're a beginner, just practicing, they are a great deal with rich colors.
