Review - Watercolour Paints - Royal & Langnickel

This set comes with 18 Paint tubes all 12ml Size and 2 Paint Brushes this is a great starting point for a beginner and they aren't to expensive that it will break your piggy bank.
I did find just the paint on Amazon for 24 tubes HERE
Plus there is a lot of paint in this to play with and if it drys out in your container add water and it will act like a cake watercolour. So Bonus and you can mix your own custom pallets up with these how much fun is that
The Brushes included aren't even that bad at all I usually use a smaller tip brush when making small ATC little works of art
These watercolours I have really enjoyed using

Here are a few samples of how these paints can colour up from vibrant to soft colours. With a really good amount of transparency 
So these are a great value for your money with a lot if paint to practice and play with.

Thanks for reading and hope this helps

Well it seems I'm just making ATCs these days I have started a huge painting to create but so far I've painted the white bg and stopped seeing I have no idea what to paint not a clue lol
I thought I'd try and make some ACEO's and see if they might sell on Ebay ? Maybe I'm not sure if I'm ready to part with these yet but here is my space for this week
So here they are up closer they are Ink and Watercolour
Think I should try my luck and see if anyone would buy them ?
Here's what was on my space last week seeing I forgot to post this 
So ATCs are so much easier you can paint anything small so at the moment Monsters in watercolour and will add in some ink after to add in smaller details

Missed last week so just a little FYI the winner of my Gorilla is in the sidebar it's been claimed and he's flying his way to Australia.

So Here's my Space this week I've been still making ATC been colour up Chris Ryniak's Morning Scribbles too Cute they are I want a page of them made up it seems and a few C cards too out of him.
My new Tri- colour Pencils you can see that each one has 3 colours in them just started playing with them and having fun with how they shade an image quickly 
Was asked about my scrap box it's 14 cm by 24 cm Approx so it's not that big but holds a lot 
 Here is what is in it all labeled up Missing it the picture is a note pad and a post it package.
I don't have a lot of scraps seeing I reach for this 1st and if I find I haven't used the paper in a while then I recycle it. the advantage of keeping it contained I guess.

Sorry if I didn't get back to you all I couldn't handle the heat
WAY TO HOT these days

Here's My Space this Week and I've been working on an ATC that a request remake it is like the fish that I can't part with under the Precut ATC's .  Seriously that show off on the right has been getting a little funky these days lol.  So my Giveaway is on the go if I make top 3 then one lucky person will be getting my silverback gorilla.  Yah please go over and help me out by voting on facebook Link in sidebar or in the post below. The 28th is my BD so I plan on eating some ice cream and cake lol 
My Sister sent me a whole box filled with goodness too for my BD and she was kind to cut me all those ATC's out now they are ready to be coloured on !!

Now for some of you might think I'm a little crazy but I really like to have things put in small spaces so I did what most would never do
There is over 120 Different types of Washi some full-ish rolls
YEP I took them off their rolls and put them in on heavy paper covered in packing tape 
now they take up next to no space and I have room for more. Funny how much more space there and the DH thinks it's not that bad now lol
this way takes up no space and is easier to find a type too
