This was my first try at Prima Paintables. I really enjoyed it. I used an inexpensive set of water color paints from JoAnn's and some of my glimmer mist. It was really relaxing. I put the kids to bed, went down stairs, put in one of my favorite movies (Pride and Prejudice) and painted. Soooo Fun. I purchased the paintables at flamingo Scraps they were part of the Marion Smith's paintables kit.
