Well now there’s some price inflation…….

Holbein’s 18 Half Pan Watercolors Set costs $216.75

Holbein’s 18 5ml Watercolor Tubes Set costs $65.99

So that’s a $150 difference between the tubes and half pans… and what do you get for the extra $150 you spent on the half pans??? Some plastic trays, a brush, and… that’s it. Especially when you consider the fact that the colors included in both sets are pretty similar.

Pretty sure that isn’t worth it!

But hey what do I know, maybe you enjoy the little box the cakes come in and maybe you prefer the cakes themselves over the tubes! Personal choice really… it’s just a surprisingly expensive one!
