Not the world's greatest, but nice, especially given the price. More than adequate for practice pieces, and students. I pay more per tube for the professional quality paints I use now, than for this entire 18-piece collection, so if you need paints for practice, go for it! Not especially great for making custom colors- mixes tend to get muddy. Stays wet in tubes for years!
I like the White Galaxy Marker very much for writing on dark paper, and I have used it to cover another color when I needed to disguise a mistake or simply change effect.
For example, I bought an ornament with name SCARLETT spelled on it and by covering the last 't', I was able to give this to someone with a cat named SCARLET.
If color to be covered is a paint or other pen color, that can make the other color "stain" the white marker tip. This can be avoided if one is sure first color is dry before trying to cover it with white.
