Reply Grace Kohli says: March 17, 2019 at 1:03 pm Hey mako could you please do a giveaway? If no then that's fine Reply Timothy Messer says: March 17, 2019 at 1:32 pm Yeah… no body likes Will Smith watercolors because you only get genie blue… blah… lol Reply Regine Nicole Rasidy says: March 17, 2019 at 1:43 pm Hey Mako! So, I've had student-grade paints for a while now, and I thought that I'd just continue using them because painting with watercolours was just a side hobby of mine back then. Recently, I've started to really get into them, and I'm saving up for an artist grade set. As far as I can tell, the brands I come across a lot are Schmincke, Sennelier, Daniel Smith, and Winsor and Newton. I was wondering if you could have a comparison between these brands, which would be really helpful for me to choose one of them to start with. I'd really appreciate it if you would consider this. Love your videos! <3 Reply Mercurial Fox says: March 17, 2019 at 2:18 pm I need an art supply addict buddy xD Reply Zantox HD says: March 17, 2019 at 2:46 pm Dieses white Night benutzen wir auch in der schule!!

Thank you for your generosity in sharing what you've learned along the way. Reply Anna Sharma says: March 17, 2019 at 5:38 pm Hey! I'm glad to see an Indian brand here: Camlin Kokuyo. While these are possibly the only artist quality paints available in India, it is really rare to find a video talking about it. I would really like an artist to test it against the foreign brands, considering how cheap it is! The 18 tube box(9ml) I think is around 7 USD here on Amazon, which is like really really cheap.While a number of people compare other watercolours, no one does it for Indian! Please do so! Reply Nawia says: March 17, 2019 at 5:58 pm hey mako, i wanted to inform you that schmincke released dot cards, too! Reply Aastha Khatri says: March 17, 2019 at 6:50 pm Strathmore is a great brand. It offers watercolour papers as well hopefully so you should try it out someday. I use their oil painting papers and it is absolutely amazing.

Reply Azzu Paris says: March 17, 2019 at 10:01 pm Hi Mako, great haul. I would love to know what do you think about the Clairefontaine watercolour paper. I used it and I don't like at all, especially the one with the orange cover. I have the Mission Gold and Gansai Tambi watercolour and I like them. Also, I so want to try the Cobra water-mixable oil! Thanks for the video 💕 Reply Jay101 says: March 18, 2019 at 3:30 am I love buying art supplies! Even just walking down the pen isle in Wal-Mart makes me feel better.

Reply Surbhi Mittal says: March 18, 2019 at 6:17 am Hi! I have a video idea suggestion. You could try to make the same painting using watercolors, oil paints and acrylics!✨ Reply Tosha Kilpatrick says: March 18, 2019 at 6:47 am Hello All! I learned recently that the Kuratake are made differently and actually work great for a technique called etegami, with a specific paper and brush. At first I was frustrated by the Kuratake, but I look forward to trying it for its intended purpose. Learn something new every day 🙂 Reply bearianna says: March 18, 2019 at 7:12 am hey mako! i’m so excited that you are starting to learn about professional watercolor brands! i’ve checked out a few “professional watercolor” channels lately, mostly because i find their art very soothing, but also because i love arts and crafts and i enjoy geeking out over different supplies and figuring out their differences! have fun experimenting. can you please take a closer look at the Holbein paint? i haven’t heard much about that brand yet! 🎨🖌 Reply DCP CUBER says: March 18, 2019 at 7:27 am You should try camel watercolours Reply Gini A says: March 18, 2019 at 7:40 am Love the video♥ can u also show reviews on prima water colors!? 😅 Reply Metha kook says: March 18, 2019 at 10:08 am How can the people give freaken 24 unlike . they don't know to understand the talent of maco Edit . thank you maco Reply Hina Khan says: March 18, 2019 at 10:38 am I m using Lefrance & Bourgeois they r very cool I loved it Reply praveena dhanalakota says: March 18, 2019 at 2:03 pm Ali Express haul cheap products like under $1 and Indian stationery haul Reply Janela Mercado says: March 18, 2019 at 4:00 pm Please do a comparison video for the watercolors 🙏 Reply JennyDespot says: March 18, 2019 at 5:27 pm Hi Makoccino, i would like to ask you for some advice.

You should try the Mungyo watercolour set. It is very pigmented too.

Reply Zakia Sultana says: March 22, 2019 at 10:14 am I LOVE THE CAMLIN WATERCOLOURS THEYRE THE ONLY ONES I GET IN BANGLADESH also can you try the Kohinoor watercolours Reply Khắc Triệu Nguyễn says: March 22, 2019 at 12:10 pm Love from Vietnam ❤️❤️❤️ Reply Katie Linck says: March 22, 2019 at 12:23 pm Also for something to protect your watercolor paintings I heard from a couple of people on YouTube to use mod podge (I don't know if they sell it everywhere but I live in the USA so I'm not sure who else has access to this product) so I bought some and when I put it over a painting it was a silhouette so the background was white and it streaked the watercolors all over the white area. I'm not sure if it was the brush I used to apply the mod podge or if it was the cheap watercolor set that had some granulation so I don't think it stains the paper as apposed to sitting on top. Reply Deepti Sharma says: March 22, 2019 at 2:09 pm Superb video n I like the zigzag book so much Reply Heather Bryant says: March 22, 2019 at 3:50 pm I love my White Nights, I have the entire set!! There is 1 ETSY seller and 1 EBay seller that are good on price and selection of the White Nights. I too wish there was black water color paper, that would be such fun. Reply Nutella Strawberry says: March 22, 2019 at 3:55 pm I know this question may be unrelated, but do you know any pencils that are water soluble? For example, I've tried using watercolor pencils for my sketches, then go over it for line art, but when I go to watercolors, it doesn't dissolve! I use a bright red. It's so hard finding stuff that doesn't smudge or smear…😭 But, I hope you've been having a wonderful day, and you are AMAZING. I'm honestly kinda jealous, since I'm BROKE. LOL! 🤣 (Could you try the Artist Loft watercolors, please?) All in all, thank you for being wonderful! 💖 Reply 민 아트Min Art says: March 23, 2019 at 2:21 am These are really cool art supplies but here in Pakistan a lot of these aren't available and if they are they're really reallly expensive I wish I could have them all..Love you mako 💕💕@I like video /…. Reply stalker person says: March 23, 2019 at 5:17 am Can you test some cheaper brands like Faber Castell watercolors? I wanted to get in to water color lately Reply Tiya Panwar says: March 23, 2019 at 10:02 am It's camlin Reply Alijah Nusaiba says: March 23, 2019 at 10:49 am I am a supply addition Reply Fatimah M. says: March 23, 2019 at 11:40 am Can you try using poster colours? These things are somewhat an opaque watercolour usually used in painting backgrounds. Careful not to get mixed up with poster paint. Reply Kavita Taylor says: March 23, 2019 at 3:27 pm The pena are called posca pens have seen a video on moriah Elizabeth she review s it u can also see it Reply Tiffany Boncek says: March 23, 2019 at 11:36 pm Im so excited for you and totally agree its not a waste even if you end up not using all of a product or dont like it im sure someone will take it and you get to play and learn totally worth getting it if its in your budget im a very cheap person but once the budget is spent i dont worry about it the money is already gone i also have kids that are more than willing to use every and any art supply i give them so nothing goes to waste lol i hope u have fun in your testing journey Reply ElizabethFussell Art says: March 25, 2019 at 2:11 pm For your interference colors, I'd recommend just getting some black watercolor ground (or tinting any watercolor ground black) or laying down some black Gouache under the paints. It's very difficult to find black watercolor paper without bad texture. Reply Goosey Geese says: March 28, 2019 at 10:09 am Clicked the like before watching the vidAnyone who also does that? Reply StarryDreamer28 says: March 28, 2019 at 9:04 pm just want to say I love art supplies & THANK YOU for using Closed Captioning, I'm hard-of-hearing! Reply MinervAthena123 says: March 30, 2019 at 6:45 pm I'm from India, and I used those Camlin paints (bc Camlin is the brand name) when I studied art in high school! They are actually pretty good quality, and are nice to work with! I used a flat palette, and they dry out overnight and can be re-wetted easily. I used canson paper with them, and the colors show up very well. It's easy to re-wet them on the paper as well, and they blend pretty smoothly. I've made lots of paintings with them, and for the price of about 10 USD in India, it was hard to beat the value! Reply J P says: April 1, 2019 at 1:17 am Do you mind showing us the Mission Gold dot cards after you try them?! I've been looking at the same brand and I keep flip-flopping on whether or not I should get the 36 set. They look so vibrant and lovely, but I'm not sure I can justify the purchase with the custom palette I've already made. Thank you kindly.

I used them all the time until I found out they are not lightfast at all.. For some this wouldn't matter, but I want my paintings to be archival, so just a heads up.
