This complete 24-color set of Lyra's Opaque Watercolors includes a nice range of skin tones. Rich colors with a smooth application, these paints are ideal for beginners as well as experienced watercolor artists. Margaret Bloom, author of Making Peg Dolls, uses these paints on her wood peg doll creations.
- 24 individually removable paint pans
- 1 Paint brush (bristles are stiff)
- 1 Tube of white
- Lid becomes an easy-to-clean mixing palette

Note: Paint pods are removable and can be snapped back into place. Individual pods when set in a pie tin or on a paper plate let you give a few specific colors to one child or spread them all around a group. A quick wipe down of the colors after use ensures clean colors for your budding artists.
I can't say enough about these watercolors. This is the third set I have purchased. I just keep coming back to them. The color pallet is beautiful, the blend well. I use them mostly on small wood pieces and peg dolls.
These paints are just lovely when used with wood peg dolls. Our family is joyously creating with them.
