Hi friends! Today I have a quick tutorial of flowers in a mason jar and a review of White Nights watercolors!
These paints are an affordable option for folks wanting a professional paint. Watch them in action in this video tutorial:
The sets come in cardboard or wooden boxes or in a plastic palette. Sets come in 12, 24 or 36 whole pans. There are over 50 colors in the range and you can also buy the pans individually (for about $3.50) which is a nice option if you just want to try a couple of colors or if you use up ones in your set.
- low price compared to other artist lines
- vivid colors (except some earth tones)
- good quality
- colors are semi moist and reactivate easily
- mixing area removes from palette in the 24 count or higher sets which makes cleaning easier
- some earth tones like sepia are weak
- many people dislike the plastic palette because it may stain, in that case save money and get the cardboard box set and put the pans in a palette you like more
Bottom line: I really like these paints and about 15 years ago I bought a set of Yarka St. Petersburg paints that I also loved and I recently found out that both White Nights and Yarka are trade names for the same paint. The reason for this is the Russian manufacture name is difficult for most to pronounce so they changed the name for American and European markets. Let me know what you think of these paints if you have used them and then people can get more views on these in the comments below. As always I as not paid to review these paints but I was provided with a set for free for the review. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
