Love this set. Purchased this because I didn't want to bring my larger and more expensive Yarka set travelling.
This set has a great little water pen included, and the tray designs and extra clip-out palette tray are very useful. It also has two little sponge blocks for cleaning your brush, something I haven't seen in any other travel tray and these are also very thoughtful.
Colour pigment is decent, it's not the best or the richest, but the colours are blendable and smooth. Given the price I am not expecting a really rich or vibrant pigment like m graham's or other high quality paint. This was easy to bring through customs with no problems, and easy and useful for sketching while travelling. Plus I wouldn't be upset if it was damaged or lost in travel, versus a much more expensive 'professional' paint set. Great set! I will likely refill the pans with a higher quality paint when I am through these, in order to keep using the little tray.

Love this set! A great selection of colours, they also mix well too. I love the convenience of the case, the pallette is build in with space for the waterbrush (which is also great) and two sponges to clean the brush with. After several subpar sets this one is a wonderful surprise, affordable, versatile and lovely paints!

I was surprised at just how compact this kit was. It seems to be made of a much more durable material and laid out much better than several other cases/palettes I've tried. The paints dry are brilliant gem stones of colour. Can't wait for the weekend to try it out. The brush bristles are quite springy and it looks like a very precise point is going to probably stick around without too much care and caution.

I bought this set to replace a well used watercolour kit with a smaller colour palette.

This set exceeded my expectations! The colour variety is wonderful, the pigments are quite rich, and the collapsable water brush is really convenient. The lid is the perfect size to hold a piece of watercolour postcard paper, and the mixing palette can be moved to pretty much any configuration you'd want (left, right, top or bottom). Being removable it's easy to rinse, but because it sits over the paint you can always do it later instead which is convenient.

The only thing I disliked was the material used for the brush wiping sponges; it squeaked audibly when I ran the brush along it and it didn't seem to absorb that well. Subsequently I took a new cellulose kitchen sponge and cut two new sponge strips-problem solved. While it annoyed me, this is not a complain worth reducing my rating- if you enjoy painting in the field or on the road, you will love this set!

I have a lot of really great things to say about this set, I'm probably going to miss something but here goes.

I bought this about two weeks? ago and I was instantly impressed. It probably helps that I wasn't using very good stuff before.
The brush releases the paint much easier than the derwent I was using before, which meant I didn't use as much water.
The colours are fantastic and the paint itself is great, it's easy to use gradually instead of getting TOO much paint right away like my old watercolour pallet.
The sponges on the side are extremely helpful for washing my brushes.
It's so small and compact and there's even a spot for a brush, so I only have to grab the pallet and my sketchbook and I'm good to go.
The only problem I really have with this is it seems harder to lift water and paint off my painting with this brush, it's not a huge deal since I always work with a kleenex or cloth next to me, but it's nicer to have that paintbrush precision.

All in all, I am so happy with this, I told a friend all about it and she's asked me to order a set for her.

And if you're like me and like to work small, I'd suggest also buying the smaller brush that I bought with this, (then you'll have a small and medium brush for a good price)

This set is surprisingly not the the quality I expected from a Japaneese company like Sakura. The box is excellent design for travel, nice and compact but the paints are not professional quality, more like kids's set. Everyone who says that these paints are great quality obviously never owned a professional set of paints in their entire life, because you can clearly tell the difference. The paints are pigmented but the pigment is VISIBLE in the wash, in a form of tiny grains, very grainy paint. I wish they ground the pigment a bit better or possibly put a different binder into the paints. I was hoping for better. I prefer to be honest here because I use A LOT OF water color paints and have both kids's sets and professional artist quality paints.

This is a great starter set for anyone who wants to delve into painting or calligraphy wi5h water colours. The water brush is comfortable to hold and use and the bristles are fairly flexible. The 24 colours come in a variety of bright and muted shades and the blend really well!
