Saving you money on watercolor paints
This website and my YouTube channel is here to make your watercolor buying process so much simpler. I buy and thoroughly test hundreds of paints so you know exactly what you are going to get when you commit to buying a tube of watercolor. Each paint is tested in details, and you also get advice on how to decided between different paints. So if you want stress-free watercolor paint buying experience, check out all the good stuff below!
In the watercolor database you find great information about 3000+ watercolor paints, including swatches and links to videos showcasing each paint. There are two ways these paints are organised by: Paints by Pigments (where you can find paints by their pigment codes) and Paints by Brands. You’ll also find extra information on each Paints by Brands page about the brands, as well as all the swatches in one place.
The YouTube channel is the biggest resource in what watercolors actually look like in real life. This is a great way to find out with your own eyes if a color is what you are looking for, as well as discovering new beautiful colors. There are over 100 videos that test out watercolors in incredible detail, as well as the easiest way to learn color theory.
Patreon Lounge is specially for my dear Patreon supporters, to easily find all the test sheets I have ever created. The test sheets scans are organised by brands and/or series we have covered on the channel. You can also download PDFs of test sheets I have created for you to print at home and do your own tests!
Becoming a Patreon supporter gives you access to the Patreon Lounge, as well as following awesome rewards – monthly dotcards, original paintings, art supplies, audio hangouts and exclusive Q&A sessions. The monthly dotcards are particularly famous for having generous amounts of paints on them so you can thoroughly test them at home, without having to shell out for whole tubes.

The watercolor encyclopaedia is packed full of useful information, such as what brands are vegan or contains honey, and which colors should be included in a split primary or color wheel palette.
