I have been using Fluid paper for a few years now and find that it's a great value for the price. The quality is suitable for beginner to intermediate level painters. Very easy to work with, accepts watercolor paints, pencils, aqua crayons and markers well.
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.
