Rated 4 out of 5★ by karmal Good deal, great case. I bought a few art supplies, and wanted a box to store them in. This had a suitcase style box with it, similar to one I have for other uses, so I took a shot.It comes with:* 12 tubes of 12 ml acrylic paint (each about the size of an index finger, & a good variety of colors.)* Plastic palette (Yeah, this is kinda useless, but might do in a pinch.)* 6" x 8" art board (Well, it's something to practice on.)* Pencil sharpener (Actually, good. Small, but all metal, so it won't break on you.)* Eraser (OK, not great.)* 4 artist's brushes (Better than expected, especially the two smaller ones. Good size, quality, and shape)* 4 drawing pencils (I paid a buck each for these a week before. Wish I'd gotten this first, and saved myself $8. for pencils.)* 2 palette knives (These will do in a pinch, but they are plastic knives, so who knows how good they'll be.)* Beginner's guide (I tossed it, so no comment on that.)* Wooden carrying case with sturdy handle (The reason I bought it, and am pretty happy with it. Well worth the money!)The paints, pencils, and case are well worth the cost here. The rest is iffy, or not worth much, but the set as a whole is a great price. I removed the contents, sanded the interior of the box, and painted some paintings inside before making myself some inserts to hold all my paints and brushes. I've uploaded a pic of the contents for you, so you can see there's plenty of room for lots of other stuff, once you remove the plastic trays they used to hold their stuff in place.This is pretty great for anyone starting out, and while you may need a few more brushes to do fine work, this will do nicely on a lot of projects. A bottle of Gesso for starters, then you're off. : ) 10/03/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by VanGough Great starter paint set I purchased this paint set for my 90 year old mother to begin her career as the next Grandma Moses. She is thrilled and has begun slapping color to canvas. Excellent product for the price. 06/08/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by LifeisMurder I really like this set! Comes with 12 colors that you mix and get many more colors. The four Daler - Rowney brushes are good quality, 2 round, 2 flat, which will get a new painter started.The paints have a nice density to them, and seem to be very pigmented, giving great coverage.I love the wooden carry and storage box, leather handle and strong latches, so you don't have to worry about it popping open while carrying it, plus, I love that I can put it on my lap and paint and draw using the box as the support, and I can work anywhere with it! I removed the large plastic inserts from the box, and now I have room for my Daler Rowney 24 tube Gouche set. Made room for more brushes also.If you are just starting out, or returning after a long period of time, this is the perfect set to start with. I am ordering the FAN brush set to add to mine, as landscapes are my favorite and they are perfect for adding leaves to a tree quickly.Best of all, buying this kit, let me start having fun painting immediately! 11/22/2013
