I didn't plan this.... it just sort of crept up on me... this collecting of watercolor sets! And this can't technically be called a review as I love them all and cannot recommend one over another. The first picture below is a Daler-Rowney travel set I carried everywhere for awhile. It is a good portable size and I love the small brush that came with it. I use that brush even with other paint sets.
The next set is a set I made up from an empty palette from Michaels and Sakura watercolor tubes that were old and crumbling. The paint is still wonderful and vibrant!! I love the Prussian blue and paynes grey.
The third set is Jane Davenport's bright watercolor travel set. I love that as well for the cheery bright colors and especially the violets and purples that are not in either prior set.
And the last two are handcrafted watercolors, my new obsession. The larger dot card is Redwoodwillow and the small palette I put together from 4 half pans in a mini Altoid tin is from imlothmelui. Both are on Etsy. I am totally enjoying using these earthy colors, and I love both of their sites for photos of paints being ground or mulled. So that is my watercolor stash for now! I recommend them all!!!!
Happy paint party Friday!
And don't forget you only have till the 6th to get 50% off anything in my Etsy shop! Many items will not be relisted after the sale so it will be your last chance.
And a big THANKYOU to those of you that have already taken advantage of the sale and helped me clear out my shop, I can't wait to reorganize and redo it!
