Set colors may vary.
Great for getting started, this set includes 10, 8 ml (0.27 oz) tubes of watercolor, a round brush, a mixing tray, and a usage guide. Colors in the set are Alizarin Crimson Hue, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Cadmium Red Pale Hue, Cadmium Yellow Hue, Chinese White, Hooker's Green Dark, Ivory Black, Ultramarine, and Yellow Ochre.
An extended palette for mixing and painting, this set includes one 8 ml (0.27 oz) tube each of Alizarin Crimson Hue, Cadmium Red Pale Hue, Cadmium Yellow Hue, Cerulean Blue Hue, Chinese White, Emerald, Ivory Black, Prussian Blue, Raw Sienna, Raw Umber, Ultramarine, and Yellow Ochre.

my recent order
from plymouth, ma
i used the paints in a watercolor class and they are great!
Great student grade paints
from Ann Arbor, MI
I like my cotman watercolors more than other student-grade brands. They have a nice range of colors to choose from. Most of the pigments handle well, but I recommend creating a test chart of your colors if they are new to you so you can know which ones tend to be grainy. This can save a lot of frustration later if you know how they behave in advance. #sweepstakes
colors great for new painter
from Crandon, Wisconsin
fist time user great for me.
from Lansdale, PA
As a teacher, I have my students use thsee watercolors and find they are a great value for the money. While not quite professional grade, the pigments are true and blend well, allowing for mixing and color theory studies.
I would buy this product again and again
from Lake Wales Florida
great quality of water colour
Better to buy higher end paints - spend more money
from Dallas, TX
I bought these as I saw in a book by a watercolorist that in certain shades (and I chose only the shades he gave a 5 star rating to) one could get away with Cotman and that they were as good as higher priced paints. Wrong. They were all very disappointing compared to my Qor, Holbein, D. Smith, Blick, etc. paints - lesson learned. Just buy a set of intro. watercolor paints like Reeves - they were better. The book was about 5 years old I think - so maybe Cotman just did not keep the quality up. I would add that Winsor and Newton paints are pretty disappointing now anyway - other brands just better and priced the same. Sad to see a great old company sort of falling behind.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
By I don't have one.
from Whitefish, MT
I use this product to do my watercolors. I'm beginning in this field so I don't have many comparisons, but so far I couldn't be more pleased with the results I'm getting.

I'm taking watercolor classes. The instructor advised me to stick with cotman for now. Why? Colors are true and consistent. Very nice range. Inexpensive. Although they are student watercolors, I have really liked everything I have done so far. They work very well together. They mix well with the professional line as well.
I am taking classes for watercolor. I am so weak at this medium. The instructor uses other brands but advises to begin with Cotman. Why? Because they all mix very well and colors are true and consistent. A great way to learn the beginnings of the medium without the stress. These are student watercolors but I certainly like what I've done with them, so far.
