I’ve been using them regularly over the past month and had the pleasure of touring their facility last Thursday. It was such a fun experience! As for the paints, I’m loving them! Rich and vibrant colors and they rewet just as well as honey-based paints even though they’re gum arabic. (which would be great for urban sketchers who say they have a problem with attracting bees with the honey-based paints… hehe). They have a special rewetting agent that works in the same way. But, what I’m loving is that honey tends to “set in” so it’s hard to lift if you make a little error. With these, I’ve been able to go back and lift color a bit and smooth shadows in a way that blends better than honey-based. So I’m a total fan!!
