I bought two of these. On for my girlfriend and one for her son. They are very nice. The paint was nice it wasn't dry. The paint was nice quality and it was nice that it came with canvas and the color wheel. It can be tricky to close the drawer though and that can get annoying. I like how it has a handle though and also how it's a mini easel as well. I think it's a great deal.
My grandmother bought this set for me because I finally decided I felt like I was ready for painting. So far I love it, though I haven’t tried every piece - the main reason for my 4 star rating instead of five The acrylic paints are well pigmented and aren’t too thick, though they do dry super fast (note: I haven’t tried the oil paints or watercolor quite yet). They don’t smell bad like other reviews I’ve read, in fact I couldn’t smell them at all. The brushes are pretty good quality as well as the sketch books. Overall satisfied, and would recommend.
Great set for beginners. Lots of accessories! Has oil and acrylic paints.
Great for being artists. Oils have less pigment then what I'm use to, more layers needed.
The paints, brushes and everything else that comes with this set is great BUT the easel is poorly designed. The drawer doesn't work well. It doesn't pull out easy. I'm really displeased with it. Not worth the price I paid for it.
