Sennelier watercolour travel box

sennelier watercolour test

 I am very excited to try my new Sennelier watercolours

I just got myself two travel boxes from Sennelier watercolour. I don’t have personal experience of Sennelier but I seem to remember hearing only good things about their colours.

I find it fascinating that Sennelier use honey as the binder, that must be a plus?

Until now I have always used watercolours from old Holland so I will comparing Sennelier to old Holland.
I know that w&w is a favorit for lots of people, but I realy never got to test the vibrant colours that I usually pick for my paintings. I recently got to tried Daniel Smith watercolours and find these intense! They must be full of pigments, so I want to buy more to try them out, but unfortunately I can’t find them in shops in this area so I’m going to order them online from the US.

Back to the Sennelier. They are very good. I like that they float easily on the paper The colours are kind of sticky, they are not VERY sticky but still, it makes it quicker to get the colours wet and ready for the painting, a bit like colours from the tube.

They easly cover the paper without killing the work, That is something I have never experienced with other watercolours. I love the tomato red: 619 Bright Red.

I got two boxes, I bought the big metal box firs, as it had more colours and it cost the same as the little box. But I fount the metal box is a bit too heavy to put in a smaller bag to have on hand all the time, but it is very good to bring on a trip when you know will be painting. Sennelier has room for additional colours and I already put some in . it is also very handy to use the plastic cover for protection, and the plastic cover shows the names of the colours underneath their colour names.

I know not much about Sennelier but back in my mind i heard only good things about this colours. I find it fascinating that Sennelier use honey as the binder, that must be a plus? My favourite so far has been watercolour from old Holland so I will compering them to them. I know that w&w is a favorit for lots of poples, but i realy never got to test the vibrant colours that i usually pick for my paintings. I resonantly got to tried Daniel Smith watercolours and find these intense they must be full of pigments, so my next plan is to buying some or maybe lots, but unfortunately I can't find them in shops round here. I'm going to order them online from the US. I like my colors to be viberent, brith and have deap or in other words i really like them to be intens and "electric". Anyway, this Sennelier is very good i like that they float easily on the paper The colours are kind of sticky, they are not that sticky but still, it makes it quicker to get the colours wet and ready for the painting. kind of like colours from the tube. It also easely cover the paper without killing the work, That i have never experienced in watercolours. I like especially the tomato red: 619 Bright Red. I got two boxe, I bought the big first for it cost the same as the little box. It turned out that I find it big and heavy to put in a smaller bag. But it is very good to bring whit on a trip etc. It has room for additional colours and already put some in . it is also very handy to use the plastic cover for protection, and it preserve their colour names.

I am having fun testing the Winsor & Newton water colour marker, W&N marker and Sennelier work very well together.

I be very happy if you leave a comment about your experience with watercolours, and your favourite brand.

IKEA hack, How to make a nice gift box.

ikea hackIKEA hack Personalising the gift box. Materials: RYSSBY 2014

I’m always looking for new fun ways to wrap a gifts. This time I was inspired to try out drawing on these black box with my POSCA pens. all you need to do is to have a pen that can draw on black. And find something you want to draw, it can be done quite easily. if you do not know how to draw, drawing zigzag or circles, or write a poem.

Occasionally I come across something I just have to have, this time it was my mother who had been at IKEA and found an offer 3 boxes in one package.

Giving away a gift box that is decorated, is a gift in itself.
