I have been using Pelikan opaque watercolors for 40 years. I love them. They last a long time. The colors are great. Also, with more pigment, you can achieve rich vibrant colors that don't fade. I don't put my finished pieces in the sun. And they don`t dry up like tube watercolors. I have given them as presents also.
I use this tape to hold the Mylar on the drafting table. It's a very good tape! It releases without leaving residue, and it is thin enough to let the rule slide on top. The tape doesn't break while unrolling, unlike many others.
I highly recommend it.
