Prima Marketing makes an interesting collection of watercolour paints and it just so happens that I recently acquired the 12 half-pan set of their "Tropicals" selection.
I have a bunch of new art supplies, covering a really large range of mediums, that I plan to do some posts on over the next little while, so stay tuned for that.
recent SketchBox contained a pair of Derwent blender pens for pencils and that was a really interesting tool to see. The other day, I was in Michaels and discovered Artist's Loft makes a similar pen. So? Time to test!
