Thank you for popping back to read my blog review on the Mijello Mission Gold watercolours. l have experimented enough with this brand, to give you some great feedback. I am not being sponsored and my review is solely based on my own opinions and experiences.
The colours are pure pigment and the “Gold Class” is a top of the line, artist grade series. If you purchase a set, they come with a colour chart pamphlet which is useful when picking out individual colours. It is such an advantage when a brand also offers open stock and you will be pleasantly surprised when you see the colour range. Each tube indicates the information you need on the light-fastness and pigments. There are a total of 105 colours offered in the Mission Gold watercolour line. Mission Gold also offers high quality pallets, with an excellent mixing area, and 36 wells big enough for larger brushes.
Looking for Vibrant Watercolours?
Are you looking for vibrant watercolours? Look no further. These fabulous, rich watercolours offer incredible vibrancy. The colours are strong and consistent that stay moist when you leave them to dry and they re-wet so quickly and beautifully. They mix well wet on wet, and they are perfect for texture and granulation techniques. I found no issues when lifting the colours wet or dry. Some staining results are inevitable when dry, but not with all the colours. I am impressed that natural binders such as honey is used in this brand which makes mixing colours a dream, as they did not become muddy. It may take you some practice when controlling the level of saturation due to the amount of pigments they offer. If you want light colours of washes, you will have to dilute them with an abundance of water. A bit of colour goes a long way, and you won’t need to use much to create light transparent colours.
All 105 colours are AP certified from ACMI, proving that they are harmless to humans.
One thing to note, they use different names for their colours compared to other manufacturers. I advise creating your own colour swatch indicating the names to better familiarize yourself with them.
This brand offers 7mL and 15mL tubes. If you paint a lot you may want to check out some of the sets they offer, economically it is the best value. Overall l find myself reaching for these the most. They are my favourite watercolours used to date, and believe me, l have tried many artist grade brands. The Mijello Misson Gold watercolours have never disappointed me yet. I trust this brand enough to offer my students the opportunity to use them in my watercolour workshops. They provide a great learning experience.
If you are an artist that loves vibrancy and colours that pack a punch, these are for sure a must try.
Please feel free to share any of your great experiences using this brand.
