Q&A (10)
Q How much does it weigh (roughly) and is it travel-friendly?
A

The Watercolour Tube Bamboo Box weighs approx. 1710g and should be travel friendly, although if you are taking it on a plane we would suggest checking with the airline first. 

Q I have received a Winsor & Newton Professional set, is this different to the Artists' set?
A

Winsor & Newton have recently changed the name of their Artists watercolour to 'Professional'. There are no differences between the Winsor & Newton Professional range and the Winsor & Newton Artists' range

Q What surface do watercolours work best on?
A

You can paint watercolour onto a variety of different surfaces. However, you want to aim to use paper that weighs either 300gsm or more. For more information about what paper we sell for watercolour, click here.

Q What brush should I use to paint water colour?
A

You will need a soft and absorbent brush to paint watercolour. Sable brushes are typically used for this, however you can use a soft bristled synthetic brush as an alternative should you wish. Round brushes with short handles are the most common shaped brush used as these are an ideal shape and size for the fine detailing and small scale traditionally associated with watercolour painting. However, watercolour brushes come in various shapes and sizes, such as Flat, Filbert, Mop, Fan, Rigger, Sword Liner and Angled brushes which all offer different brush stroke styles and effects.

Q What are the benefits of using watercolour tube paint as oppose to using watercolour pans?
A

The choice to use tubes as oppose to pans is mostly down to personal preference. Watercolour tube paints offer better colour intensity than pans and are ideal for use when painting larger scale works and washes. When it comes to watercolour tube paints, a little bit of paint goes a very long way. This makes it easier to attain a higher level concentration of paint and water. They can also be easier to mix with other colours than pans.

Q What are the benefits of using watercolour pans as oppose to using watercolour tube paints?
A

The choice to use pans as oppose to tubes is mostly down to personal preference. Watercolour pans offer a quicker and easier experience when painting in watercolour, with less mess and less wasted paint than when using watercolour tube paints. The small size of the pans make them portable and easy to store which is particularly useful when painting on location.

Q What is the difference between the ‘series’?
A

Artist quality paints are priced in series numbers. These numbers are determined by the pigments used to create the paints, and depending on the how these pigments are sourced, these will differ in price. Colours of paint that are made using a pigment derived from precious stones for example will be more expensive than colours of paint that are made from an easily sourced pigment such as carbon. Only artist quality paints are priced in series numbers because they will only use ‘genuine’ single pigment, whereas beginner/student quality paints will often mix more economic pigments to create ‘hues’ of more expensive pigment in the interest of being cost effective.

Q Please can you confirm the colours that come with this set? Thank you
A

The colours may vary, depending on what's in stock with Winsor & Newton.

Q Could you please tell me the colours included in this set, so that I can order a particular colour if it is not already provided. Thank you.
A

Each box will contain a rounded selection of watercolours. However the exact colours may vary slightly depending on which colours Winsor & Newton themselves have in stock at their facility at the time that the box is put together, before it is distributed to us. 

Q Could you please tell me the dimensions of this product?(for carrying on an airline as hand luggage)
A

The box measures approx. 33cm x 24cm x 7cm. If you are travelling by air, we would recommend checking with the airline before you travel, for any other sizing or substance restrictions that might be in place.

28th January 2015 Reviewed by Gillian Robinson I bought this item because the price was excellent for the contents of the box. They would have cost a lot more to buy the items individually. I am actually not using the bamboo box (see below) so have stripped the items out but the box may come in useful at some point. I like Windsor and Newton products as I think the quality is very good, I would recommend this product to anyone wanting to increase their range of artists watercolours in tubes. However, not all the colours which were advertised arrived. There was some variation. I was not too bothered about this but some people might be. It does say that the colours may vary.

25th September 2014 Reviewed by Anna Feruglio Dal Dan Excellent value for money. The quality and choice of colours is extremely good, the two brushes are very good, the box is compact and attractive and the ceramic mixing palette is much better than either plastic or metal. The included paper is 300g not and although small very good quality. I thought about adding some of my favourite colours (Payne's grey, for example) but the truth is you don't actually need to. Costs not much more than the other sets but comes with the mixing palette and two brushes, themselves easily worth more than half the price, and that's not even counting the tubes of paint. It's a great gift for somebody who loves to paint but maybe hasn't tried watercolor yet, but it is also a fabulous investment for yourself if you have worn out your first Cotman sketchers set, as I did. And you can always add tubes of other colours later, if you really can't give Prussian blue up, which I probably can't, although this did make me appreciate the versatility of French ultramarine.
