Re: Managing WC mixing, and what's the deal with white in the Prang box?

I'm talking about the Prang 16 color oval boxes having white watercolor
in them. It makes it so tempting for kids to make pastels with
watercolor by using white. But the white addition to colors just makes
them look chalky. Yuck. I just wish they would leave the whites out of
the 16 color sets and put in a gold metallic, haha. Or something more
useful!!!
