Make Your Own Watercolor: Classic
Reviewed by MARY ANN M. on 2/11/2019
Absolutely fantastic. Anyone with a curiosity of how watercolors are made should definitely consider going. Those who watercolor would, of course, learn a great deal and also walk away with 14 full pans of 14 hand made colors all securely place within a metal palette. Rachael the person we had is so knowledgeable and also low keyed and reassuring so it was a wonderfully relaxed, fun filled time.
