There is a huge reason why there’s such excitement over these sets. One, the tin is the best on the market in thickness of metal etc and the square palette that holds 18 officially but 21 without modification is really rare and only offered every 5 years or so. Also, if you take the price of any good tin out, (about $40) then you’re getting top grade paint for about $2.50 per pan. Even though some are opaque, you’re still getting amazing paint for a truly amazing price. Normally a half pan of paint is $12.
Please know that they probably will not have this square set again anytime soon and the price will probably go up significantly next year. That’s directly from Wet Paint.
