Instead I ordered a beginner set by MASH. It's 25 image plates that are actually duplicates of the Konad designs. It has great reviews on Amazon with a 5 star rating and over 25 individual reviews. Most people seem really happy with the quality and many claim to have compared them directly with Konad. I can't wait to for them to get here so I can try them out!
I will definitely write about them when they arrive and my first attempts with them. I'm sure it will be a little messy at first but that's all part of the fun anyway.
