I love the discussion about the quality of the various brands of paint. It
saves us a lot of aggravation to listen to those who have tried and tested
these products. Thanks for all your advice. I am a painter and taught
private art lessons to children for many years before going back to the
classroom. I got hooked on the Grumbacher transparent watercolor sets.
There are 12 colors and they snap in and out for easy cleaning as well as
for replacement purposes. In addition, the lid makes a nice palette. Refills
are available through the School Specialty catalogue. These are the best
student grade sets available I think. I have been using them in the
classroom and the students like them alot. They are expensive ( around $15
per set- they also come with a brush) but to me it is an investment; as once
you buy the sets, after that, all you need are the refills.
