Here is my little Review on Monte Marte Watercolours Paint Two Seasons. I bought these paints on sale too good of a deal to not give them a try and these are not to bad they are a soft wash of colours they have some great tones for those that like to paint softer looking colours. You can find them on Amazon Here
. But I bought these for only $8 at Homesense so you can find for a cheaper price if you just look around.
This set has a Gold and Silver Colour in them too which is a nice little bonus for those who what to try out a metal colour.
Stock Photo Used
I just made up a quick little sample sheet of all that come in this set to
give you an idea of what they have. Leaving the colours as full pigment as I could
These paints aren't bad and Some of the colours feel like they been mixed with White,
and aren't that transparent as a pure colour but work good for shading.
Below is a example of the paints as you can see they feel muted to me little bolder in real life but this gives you an idea.
Sorry the Photo Went MIA when I paint up another will share it here
Pros about these
Had Metallic colours included which is a nice surprise and like the washed out colour pallet to play with.
Few Cons about these
Now I did notice a few of the paints have a funny little smell when I used them from the tube and put it on a pallet but that went away once it dried up must be something they use in the process to create the paint. Also Might be the fact the the only thing keeping the air out of them is the lid not sealed air tight.
I also put some paint in half pans they seem to be very shiny and don't like staying in them very well and fall out a lot , they look like plastic paint. They still work fine just funny they won't stay in the pans if dropped about. Also they have been in there for a couple days and everytime I've opened the container you can smell the off gases what do they use to make them stink?
So over all these are pretty low end paints but great for a student learning and they will paint just lightly like they all are mixed with white
The paints also didn't seem to be mixed very well as water came out at first then paint showing separation or the way the store handled them
Would I buy these again maybe have to think about it.
