Getting into art-making doesn't need to be intimidating, but it usually is. The Etchr Watercolor Starter Kit is designed to take the guesswork out of how to get started by including must-have art supplies for beginners plus instruction. It's a one-box solution to help both beginner and advanced artists begin their watercolor journey. This kit includes 6 half-pan watercolors, 3 watercolor brushes, 2 drawing pens, 1 watercolor block, 1 golden llama lapel pin, a watercolor guide, and free access to an Etchr online workshop.

The watercolors include a basic palette of Cobalt Blue, Just Yellow, Leaf Green, Pure White, Simply Red, and Umber Brown. With great pigmentation and lightfastness levels, these are simply the best student-grade watercolor paints. The synthetic watercolor brushes include a Flat Brush Size 1/2" and Round Brushes Size 6 and 12, with which you'll be able to make thin to broad strokes in any shape you like. The black drawing pens include an 05 fine liner for detailed drawing and a brush pen for expressive marks, each filled with waterproof and fadeproof pigmented ink that can be painted over with no bleeding. The A5 watercolor paper block is filled with 140 lb. (300 gsm), acid-free 50% cotton paper with a cold press texture and a soft white color, letting paint and water dry faster and leave behind brilliant, vibrant pigments. The block is glued on 2 sides to resist warping and is a perfectly portable size for urban sketching and plein air painting. At 8-1/4" x 5-3/4", it fits neatly inside a bag or travel painting kit.

To guide you from the basics of color mixing to tips, tricks, and exercises that will get you started without being overwhelmed, check out the included instruction booklet, Art Tips and How to Get Started with Watercolor, plus a Color Mixing Guide. In addition, you get access to a free introduction to watercolor workshop online. This in-depth series will take you from total beginner to feeling comfortable enough to create original art. Through exercises, demos, talks, and examples, you will be immersed in watercolor painting ideas that will help you develop your own painting path. Comes in a gift storage box.
