Disappointing, too thin color
By Robert Sloan, A Proud Grandpa
from Russellville, Arkansas
I like the shape of the Winsor Newton watercolor sticks. I trust they're lightfast and archival, good quality watercolors. That said, they're extremely frustrating. I can't get a strong saturated wash with them at all. Alizarin Crimson comes out a hot pink, not the deep tone that I happily used in other Winsor & Newton water media as a darkener for warm colors. It should come out almost black in full saturation. Texture of the sticks is hard, a lot like a colored pencil, but does not have the intensity or saturation of artist grade colored pencils. Faint lines when sketched dry turn into pale watery washes with water, picking up color off the stick is like using a student watercolor. Also why include real Alizarin instead of Permanent Alizarin Crimson or Permanent Rose or Quinacridone Red in the set of ten for a cold red? These would have been a good idea if they doubled the pigment concentration. All the watercolor pencils I have perform better for both dry laydown and color when washed out. Daniel Smith Watercolor Sticks are a lot stronger, they go on faint but wash out strong and can be used like pan watercolors. They dissolve faster with good pigment strength. Winsor & Newton needs to reformulate this product. I hate to have to say this about a WN product but get their other stuff, like the watercolor markers and so on. Those performed. This one is just too frustrating.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great for expressive sketching!
from New England
These watercolor sticks are terrific for expressive sketching. Best results when you explore the limits of their mark making abilities: blobs, scratches, puddles, wandering lines... no palette necessary. And so easy to take anywhere. Add a #10 brush and a small container of water and you are good to go!
Love the WN water color sticks. The pigments are fantastic! The sticks are interesting in that the user experience falls in between pans and tubes. They are very nice for dry-on-dry and well defined areas of wet-on-wet. I use WN tubes for washes that cover large areas as the mixing to get sufficient quantity to cover area is easier
Beautiful colors!!!! Excellent quality

Winsor Newton Watercolor sticks
from Mount Dora FL
I watched videos of people using various water soluble crayons and always wished WN would come up with theirs. Finally got my wish! They are nice to use. Draw add water and viola! Or use them like a pan color and wet them to create puddle color. Right on paper or fabric! Its great to be able to draw with them. Yes they are more expensive that craft colored sticks but these are the same pigments available in real paint not nontoxic colired dyes like the craft sticks.
Great Vibriant Colors

I must say I love these watercolor sticks. You can use them dry or wet. I am a mix medium artist I love to mix all of Winsor products together along with Prismacolor. I am one satisfy customer...
Watercolor sticks are amazing
from Hayfork, CA USA
This product is amazing, I use it for a background laying down different colors added my wet brush, oh my words can not express the results. Another way I use the stick was to take a wet brush applied to color stick paint like I would be using dry paint in a pan, fantastic results...next month I am buying more colors.

Amazing Watercolor Media
By Christi The Total Newbie
from Seattle, WA
These watercolor sticks are awesome. They go on smooth with a great deal of control but the real magic comes with activation - the colors are intense and spread beautifully.
