This item was purchased to add to a crafts activity for adults. Together w/ mini easel and canvas it made for a great presentation.
So I was really hesitant to purchase these because of all the bad reviews, but Im very happy I did! I run a kids art studio and because of Covid, Im forced to conduct classes remotely so I purchased these to send to my students so they each have their own set. I wanted to test one first to make sure they were decent quality as I would not send just anything to my students. The colors are vibrant and the brush that came with it is decent, better than the plastic ones that come with crayola water colors. The water color paper I used is 9x12 with a 1 inch border taped off. The negative comments you see on here are from people that didnt teach the kids how to properly use watercolor cakes and as a result, the kids scoop the paint out in big gobs. Which, is not the right way to use these and is very common for novices to do. I am extremely pleased and will continue to use these for my students.
Instead of candy, we gave this as party favors and kids were delighted...
Many happy trick-o-treaters!!
