A professional hand-made set of 10 essential watercolors
In collaboration with British company Jackman's Art Supplies, I'm delighted to tell you about the set of colors I have designed especially for you; The Essentials Set.
With years of experience teaching beginners, I know the challenges experienced with color mixing. Because it's so easy to get in a muddle and feel overwhelmed by not understanding color theory, perhaps you think you may never understand it! With this set it doesn't matter. I give you beautiful warm and cool basics, earth colors and neutrals, plus you also get my special Watercolor Mixing Guide showing you how to mix 20 more unique colors; greens, purples, oranges, more primary hues and useful neutrals. Simply follow the guide to combine each color with another, and mix a new colour, great results and no need to learn color theory!
Each set of 10 colours has been specially designed and tested from the ground up with artists in mind.
Available in 14ml Tubes or Hand Poured Half Pans
Includes a German Quality Steal Artist Tin (Black)
The Essentials Set comes with or without a size 6 round synthetic brush, handmade in Germany by skilled crafts people.

About the set
Working closely with Jackman’s Art Materials I have selected these essential colours to give you the greatest variety of mixing options. Using over two decades of experience teaching thousands of students how to mix colours, I know that these basic hues will give you everything you need to begin painting landscapes, animals, florals and more.
The Essentials Set contains pure, brilliant colours in warm and cool hues, in a selection of primaries and neutrals. Using my unique mixing guide included in every set, you will be able to expand these base colours and mix many more, including a full range of secondary colours (violets, greens and oranges) and an expanded selection of neutrals.
Simply follow the instructions to mix one color with another and obtain a new color. A perfect starting place for beginners looking for a foundation set of paints, but also of the finest quality that more experienced artists demand.
I am pleased to put my name to these paints and am confident you will find them a delight to use for many years to come!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Best pan paints I’ve ever bought!
I follow Michele Webber online and saw a video using these new paints she co-developed with Jackman’s. I live in the US and they arrived promptly. The paints are the smoothest, most color saturated of any brand pan paints I’ve purchased in the past (W&N, Daniel Smith). Very useful colors for more than just flowers and the variations from combining them are very nice. Not garish but very vibrant. I’m very happy with them.
Michele Webber’s paint series.
I love the colors and mixes possible. I love them.
Bright and Beautiful.
For a beginner, this palette is exciting and fun to use. It’s playful and subtle at the same time. If you love painting bright colors without a muddy look, this will fulfill your expectations. For the joy of watercolor without worrying about too much color mixing.
Michele Webbers Watercolor Floral set
Great botanical colours, the pinks and reds were particularly useful as they are hard to mix for some flowers. I also loved the petal shadow colour, so useful!!
Amazing florals finally launch!
This is the best set you can possibly get for florals and so many uses for other things too. You’ll fall in love :-)
