Reply To: Da Vinci watercolors

Kate, I’ve just started playing around with DV, and so far, I’m completely smitten. I’ve been an M Graham lover for years, and DV is as bold as MG without the mess. They rewet very easily and dilute beautifully! I have noticed that some of the colors, when applied more thickly to paper, can appear to have a slight sheen to them. They dry well though. My guess is that they have a high amount of gum arabic that contributes to this? I’m still in the testing phase but have a full review scheduled for late this month.
