Andy H2 (4/17/2015)Wasn't there some query of the light fastness or the lasting quality of Shin Han paints - I seem to remember something. I don't think any watercolour paint should have a matt powdery effect - rather contradicts the whole purpose of transparent watercolour, don't you think?
I've just bought some of these & I'm very pleased so far. They were cheap but if used fairly thinly they are surprisingly transparent but still rich in colour. The colour just floods out with very little effort. When used more thickly however they become very opaque, even more so than designer gouache. The only drawback I can find is that when used thickly they have a matt powdery appearance. I have been using mainly Windsor & Newton artists watercolours. Has anybody else used them & if so what do you think?
