I use Grumbacher Academy watercolors exclusively for my marbling.
Rated by: Larry G. in Carmel, ME
Value and quality all in one great product, recommend you try them.
Rated by: Kylie D. in Pittsburgh, PA
I use Grumbacher Acad for all of the basic shades, and have since I first started painting. I've never been disappointed with their depth, vibrancy, and smoothness. Highly recommended!
Rated by: Jane R. in Shelton, WA
I always trust Grumbacher, and was not disappointed with these paints. When for a very reasonable cost, one can get quality paints like this it's a VERY good thing!
Rated by: Susan K. in Coleridge, NE
I am just beginning to learn how to paint with watercolors. These paints were very affordable, and are such beautiful colors. Great purchase for a beginning watercolorist needing to get all the supplies!
Rated by: Irene M. in Oregon City, OR
I have used this product for a long time and find that each time I do, it proves itself once again. It can be a little grainy at times but overall a good product to use.
Rated by: Christina C. in Washington, D.C., VA
Great color at a reasonable price.
Rated by: Elnora R. in Denver, CO
Great quality pigments at an affordable price.
Rated by: Ginger B. in Doyline, LA
I have been using Academy watercolors for over 20 years. They have rich colors and are consistant in hue. I have tried many other brands, but I always come back to Grumbacker
Rated by: Thom M. in Santa Maria, CA
My usage (of opaque water-based colors) requires a high quality of pigment combined with an "ease" of preparation and usage combined with - AND MOST IMPORTANTLY (for me) - flexibility and versatility. "Grumbacher" has always represented those elements for me.
Rated by: Lilian S. in Oak Park, IL
good quality for the price (especially when it is on sale). I used them primarily for making monoprints
Rated by: Phyllis M. in Englewood, CO
Being an instructor, I come across many students wanting to begin their own selection of watercolor paints. I try to steer them toward a decent and affordable first choice, hoping they will continue. They usually do. Thank you for extending these prices to so many new-comers to the art world. tipped as it may be .............

These are great for the money. Affordable enough to try lots of colors!
Rated by: lynne f. in boulder creek, CA
These are wonderful, sort of industrial strength, reliable, watercolors..nice and smooth, not grainy...good body for opacity, and even dilution for washes and transparency.
