Latest Product Reviews

It is good that you carry this wonderful French product. Not many do these days. It's a high quality glass paint, and is compatible with similar product. Great for adjusting colors and giving them a brilliance.
- RPM in Topanga CA
I purchased the # 6, 8 and 10 round brushes. If you are looking for a round brush with a point as pictured in the MisterArt brush shape chart these brushes do not have a pointed tip. The quality and price make these brushes a good value.
- Ozona in Port Richey, FL
These are some of the best watercolors out there. The range of colors make choices almost endless, and the quality is fantastic. Creamy and wets easily, mixes and blends well, vibrant and nonfading. Love Daniel Smith!
