Prima Watercolors - Decadent Pies - First Impression and Swatches

This Decadent Pies palette by Prima Watercolors has so many options.  It's a little overwhelming since it is a whole palette unto itself and not a small selection of four colors like I'm used to.  The colors are so rich and pretty; especially the yellows, green and blues.

The packaging is exactly the same as the Jane Davenport ones so I don't know if it is the same watercolors, just white labeled for Jane Davenport or what.  I had deja vu for the longest and then the light bulb went off, "these look just like Jane's!"  lol  If you can clue me in, please do, so interested. :)

I love using limited color palettes.  So for the sweet girl in the thumbnail I only used 5 colors out of the set.  The green and brightest blue (last one in bottom row) are insane.  I used masking fluid for the first time to preserve the whites in the dress so I could have the stars pattern too.  No granulating with this set and so many possibilities, Prima just got another fan in me.
