Viviva looks like a really good alternative – they look much more convenient than the Peerless because they are already set up in a booklet with a divider. With Peerless, you get a bunch of little cardboard films that you cut up and paste onto something. It’s a little time consuming, but you can set them up as you like. I assume that any of these are really just for sketchbooks and art journals, as many have pointed out that they probably aren’t lightfast.
I hadn’t thought about them as being dye, but yes, that’s definitely true. I generally use them in my sketch journal, when I’m not wanting to mix colors from my travel palettes. Shortcuts! They don’t work well for large washes, because as you point out they have very little pigment on the card. I can imagine what a colorful mess rain on the sheet would make! I keep them on a book ring in a plastic bag, one color family to a ring.
