    Beautiful paint set

    Gorgeous colours, beautiful to look at and to use! I’m enjoying them very much. They can be vibrant straight from the pan or subtle with water, and layers. Quick delivery and safe arrival from SmoothPens. Would make a lovely gift.

    Really fun, good quality waterpaints
    By I. K
    I love these paints! These are perfect paints for what I need them for. Smooth blends, pastel-like tones for some and they're quick to activate. They re-activate very well too. They're very smooth once dried and the pans are large so I can put a lager brush in to do backgrounds if I want. I really do love these ones 💖

    Great price, plenty of colours.
    By Mike
    A good selection of colours and the pans seem quite generous. The paint goes on the paper smoothly and you can get an almost gouache like effect. The metallic paints that come with this set are awesome, especially the white gold.
