I use watercolor along with water soluble graphite and other media. I don't want to invest in large expensive watercolors, but I don't want junk either! These are lovely to work with if you use decent brushes: I don't use the little brush included with the set. Colors are nice, and last: they go a long way. I think they are a bargain.

these watercolors are great for teaching. they are bright,permanent and transparent. I use them to teach my high school art classes and the perform just like professional watercolors. With decent paper you can use these paints show how watercolor are supposed to work. They also seem to last just about 1 school year. These are the only pan style student grade paints that I would use.

carosel with these paints
By Guache and watercolor man
from New Bedford Massachusetts
I use Yarka for my grounds. I use the reds and blues and let them blend together while watery. I may mix in a little yellow. Then, when dry, I paint with gouache and Winsor Newton watercolors over this. Outstanding results.

By Mrs. R

I've tried so many kinds of watercolor sets for my 4th - 8th grade students! I bought these for my Advanced Painting 6th-8th graders to use for their watercolor projects. Intensity is good for student grade paint but their are so shiny when applied to thickly! Also the lids seal so tight the paints don't dry out very well (which would be great if I was teaching professionals but kids tend to use em goopy when they're goopy which then leads to the shininess!)Still looking for a better paint tray for my middle school kids!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Yarka Watercolor Paints are semi-moist which means they will always remain soft and tacky.

fine for travel sketching
from Delray Beach, FL
I'm an acrylic painter but I use this set when i travel to add to sketches, though I do supplement with gouache. The gouache can be dried on a piece of disposable palette and it will fit into the top of the water color box. All very compact. What I like most about this set is that it is very small and convenient to pack and it's inexpensive. The brush is not very good so I've shortened the handle on a better brush
Great for the Classroom
from Sacramento, CA
I am a Waldorf teacher and I use these paints for quick renditions for my students. For the price the colors are vibrant. The children love using them.
