We were so excited to try these new liquid watercolours from Sargent and are happy to report that this is our new favourite tool when teaching students about colour. These paints are extremely bright and mix very well on all sorts of paper. As you can see in the examples of student work, the Sargent Watercolours Magic paint bled perfectly creating a gorgeous effect. Students painted the page with water first and then added a dab of concentrated Sargent paint.
We suggest purchasing the ten-count kit for a classroom. While the watercolour lasts for a lot longer than other watercolour paints, it will quickly become a favourite for your students.
We also used Pentel Art Oil pastels to create and highlight the lines and pollen in the paintings. The pastels pair nicely with the watercolours and do not smudge with little hands.
