Good set of colours and good price. One leaked but frost may have got it. Had to clean out first bit of this one then fine. Tip - keep them indoors so they don't get too cold or hot.

Good set to add color to your eastern style paintings. 11 April 2012
By GIA's Mom - Published on Amazon.com

This might be one of the very few instances where the item sent was better than the picture and description. If you look up Big Size 12 Colors Marie's Chinese Painting Colour(12ml) you will see a better description of what was sent. The difference being 18 colors instead of 12. At 18 12-mL tubes this is the best deal I've seen (at this time).

The colors provided, circle the color wheel and are a great started set. I did notice that the tubes had a good amount of air in them making the size of the tube containor disproportionately larger than the volume of paint in each. It didn't bother me so much because the price of the paints were well below smaller sets and sizes available.

The paints themselve look very similar to western watercolors. You can really see a diference when you use them on your Sumi/Chinese Caligraphy/rice paper. There is suppose to be a differnt kind of pigment binder in chinese watercolors making them better suited to these types of papers. I tested the western watercolors along side the chinese watercolors and notice that the western watercolors tended to bleed and diffuse out into the papers, resulting in a blur of running colors. If I added little to no water I could avoid this but since western watercolors tend to be more expensive then chinese watercolors it seem to not be the best approach. I was able to obtain crisp lines and vibrant colors using the chinese watercolors. Althouh the available colors for the chinese watercolor are limited they appear to be a better aproach for this type of media. I will just have to work on my color mixing techniques!

water not paste in the tubes 25 Jun 2012
By TERESA - Published on Amazon.com

Quality control seems to be lacking on these paints. Some have a paste like American style watercolors, but some contain a bubbly, tinted liquid. It seems like the contents of the liquid tubes has separated and there doesn't seem to be enough usable color compared to other watercolors in a similar price range that I've purchased recently.
