    Neat! Didn’t know that about sable vs. synthetic

    If you like the honey binder, I highly recommend trying the M. Graham watercolors. They are easily re-wet, and the colors are strong and gorgeous. 🙂 I’ve been painting with them for about five year now and can’t recommend them enough!

    Oh. That’s a lovely idea to keep the papers in the plastic bag so that you can mix the colours on top. I’m going to use that next time I travel. Thanks 🙂

    That’s interesting..I find the taklon brushes hold their shape much better than non-synthetics. However, I’ve never been able to afford kolinski (also being a vegesaur, I won’t use them LOL), so maybe I’d be surprised.
