Inspired by neon colours and artists using neon paint and media, I found there are not many brands of neon watercolor paint available - the Japanese brand Kissho Gansai Lumi Accent seems to be the most widely known of neon watercolor paints.
I found the paints very smooth and easy to use, sort of a creamy texture so more opaque in their use. I used them by themselves in one painting and together with my other non luminous paint in the other. They are really really neon, so not subtle - but I love the colours !! They will be great for highlights and for some illustration work for my design store juicyhues
I would have loved a blue or green colour on the palette. That would be perfect. Also I'm not sure how lightfast the neon will be. There is a good chance it may fade over time. Will be interesting to see if it lasts.
Am seriously thinking of getting the box set of all 72 colours to see what they're like.
