    El Greco has the complete boxes, plus the various tubes etc..note however that the wooden box version is heavy to ship...
    the stuff airbrushes well with some experimenting..does dry fast and wants a wet palette..hard to judge value but seems a lot of unthinned paint in 20ml tube vs bottles..and maybe is a bit less than artist tube acrylics from say Golden. And it’s one price for all colours vs varying prices with Golden..has some intersting colours based more on dyes, but some odd pigment references such that pg7 looks nothing like the pthalo green blue shade normally would..equally pbr7 is natural vs their stated synthetic earth..anyway it’s good stuff..those used to rows of bottles in front of them as they work may need figure a different display/storage..and learn dispensing..and it’s thin enough to need be careful closing caps and not getting some flow back and mess..

    Price ie $399.99? A bit much.

    Do consider the context: the wooden case, brushes, retarder, .....and the volume of material...it’s pretty much in line based on the full meal deal...a lot yes, but buying single pot sets adds up as well..a better comparison might be the complete bunch of colour sets...the base colour set is redundant as all are found in the separate red, green etc...that’s what I bought, plus the two accessories. The water brush is common to the crafting world...not tried it...the kolynsky brushes are pricey alone...
    I actually forwarded the review to Kev because I didn’t want to post a review knowing how polarizing materials choices are...anything novel is inevitably criticized. I still am not sold on colour sets vs proper colour mixing and theory, and as for price, those who were in the Kickstarter, including el Greco, has to pay up months ago, yet only just received their goods

    Am trying it to blend..but no instructions came with it. .bought it along with the tubes...and then my fabric artist wife said she had one all along...it’s used to remove sketches for designs on fabric...

    Most often I've heard they're used for washes. Load up the reservoir and away you go. Of course this makes much more sense for modelers rather than figure painters, but if you have a small army being painted, it could be more convenient. It could also be used as a blender or wiper. Not having used one before, kind of difficult to say how well they work. My main concerns would be how wet the brush gets, and how well whatever you load it up with flows.

    I don’t think that’s the point..is it? Based on the wildly popular Kickstarter campaign more than a few were intrigued to try something new and different..

    I sometimes use one of those for wet-blending. I load it with water and retarder (50%-50%) then apply it to the area where I want to wet-blend.
