This trial set is ideal for anyone looking to try this range, and includes 5 10ml tubes in colours:
This set makes a useful travel palette. I have poured mine into half pans and placed them in a mini mint tin. They mix well producing a good range of hues which I enjoy using. Paynes Grey is less blue than some other brands and in my opinion leans more towards a neutral tint and is very versatile for producing darker tones such as sepia, Indigo and Forest Green. The tin provided holds lots of tubes once the foam insert is removed and is sturdy and attractive. All in all excellent value for money. Lola (North Yorkshire) on 24 Aug 2018
So much better than student grade watercolours - green and grey mixes especially good; nice, useful box for plain air. Treat yourself, you'll never look back. F W Brown (Richmond, United Kingdom) on 11 Oct 2018
