I love the small white case it comes in, it's about the size of an altoids tin so it's great for on the go watercolouring. However, I was greatly disappointed in the way the colours are packaged inside (aside from my green being noticeably smaller). There is a cheap plastic holder for the colours and the brush, taking up most of the tin. For compact traveling, this felt like a huge waste of space, so what I did was I bought empty half pans and transferred the paints to the half pans, and tossed out the cheap plastic. It immediately gave my tin a bunch of space, to add in more pans (currently I have three mid sized pans, and six half pans, for a total of 9), put in a waterbrush/brushes, pencil, a sponge, paper towels, and a small piece of plastic with the swatches and for mixing. I have included of my new setup. So while the case right off the bat isn't as portable as I'd like it to be, it's definitely customizable.
As far as the colours themselves, I LOVE them. I have tried several watercolour brands and I LOVE love love these. The colours pick up so easily, they lay on the paper super smooth, and they remain fairly moist because of the honey. I bought this along with a Windsor Newton cotman set, and this just blows the W&N out of the water. The colours are super vibrant, layer easily, and have a wide range of depth to them. I see many people complain about the lack of vibrancy at first, but where Sennelier shines the best is in it's layering/glazing abilities. Layer the paints over and over and you'll begin to see the depth and details that these can achieve.
My test for how much value these colours can get is to do a monochromatic piece, which I did using my favourite colour in the set; Payne's Grey. I was absolutely impressed with how much I was able to push a single colour, and this continues to be my favourite watercolour brand yet. This set is great introduction to these paints, especially before splurging on a bigger set like I later did. This is still my go to set because of the compact shape, and the vibrancy of the colours.
EDIT: I see many people complaining about the mix of pigments in these colour choices. It's my biggest pet peeve, when people complain about nothing being "pure pigment". If everything was pure and exact, then there would not be variety in paints and in art itself. I have found that I can get a huge range of colors from the original 8 included with the set. Personally, I would not recommend these to beginners, and it's also not good for teaching basic color theory. It would be well for advanced color theory, but not for beginners who don't understand why these paints are a mix of paints or why they behave the way they do.
Even after using dozens of other watercolors (including the "top" brands), I still come back to my sennelier set, which I have expanded to 30ish colors, because I just love the creaminess and layer-ability, which is great for portraits that need that translucent feel to the skin and hair.
In the end, these are not for everybody. I have met far too many people who bash on these too much, all for the same stupid reason of "these aren't pure pigment", the way people bash on the mijello golds. If you are looking to try something new, try a new color palette setup, or overall just give these an open minded try, then this might be what you're looking for.
The case is virtually the same as the ones Schmincke uses for their pan sets and I loved those enough to order two empty cases to hold my Yarka St. Petersburg sets. The case itself is just hard enough to protect the paints, and still light enough to maneuver in one hand. On the inside, you have a palette and the tray of watercolors which lifts out to reveal more mixing/palette space if you need it. There is a plastic cover on the inside that goes over the pans and gives a swatch, color names in French and English and the corresponding color number and the series number. I find it to be helpful as I can use it to know which paint it is for any tutorials and for reorder information. I find it best to remove that when you're painting as you can wipe some of that printed color/info off if you're wiping paint off of it. There is a ring underneath it for your thumb or finger to hold the palette stable in your hand.
There is a problem I want to address. I had read a previous review where the reviewer accidentally knocked her cakes out of their pans and couldn't tell which was which. Because of that warning, I was able to test that and, the cakes are quite loose inside the pan. This would be a huge problem for me but I did think of a solution and try it and photograph it for you all. I had a syringe for filling ink from Goulet Pens, I'm sure you can use any syringe from the drug store, so I used the syringe to wiggle the needle into an open spot and then inject a tiny bit of water into each pan so that it would wet the cake from underneath, causing the liquefied watercolor to dry onto the pan from underneath. This worked beautifully so now all of the cakes are stable inside the pans, and I hope this info helps someone to not have that problem.
Overall, they're amazing and my little solution fixed the only problem I had with them, making them a perfect set.
