Testing Characteristics of Watercolor Paint

I just launched my own watercolor paints that I mull from pure pigments by hand. They are a labor of love, and oh how I love them. I put together this video to show you how to test different characteristics of watercolor paint. As I state in the video, none of these characteristics discussed are necessarily bad, or good, or undesirable. They are simply the traits that paints have, or do not have. When you know how each of your paints work, and what to expect, it enables you to be better prepared when creating your art. Your paints are tools of your trade, knowing which tool to use is an important part of the process.
