 I do not use gouache, but decided it would be a nice addition to my sketchbook drawings. I tested Cerulean Blue, Lemon Yellow and Crimson Red.

  1.  Very little goes a very long way. I was able to mix a beautiful orange and green and a subtle mauve with these three colors.
  2.  I found the colors to be vibrant. 
  3. I was able to fade them out to a nice transparency like watercolors which surprised me.
  4. They have a nice ability to move around a bit after they dry.

They claim colors are lightfast and conform to ASTM D-4236 standards. For a starter/tryout set the price is certainly right for me. I paid $8.99 from Jerry's Artarama. You can also purchase this set from Amazon.
