Size: 36-Tube Paint Set Verified Purchase
I purchased this set for my adult daughter. This is a complete set of accurate colors for most acrylic paintings, and they can be applied to almost every surface, including permanent adhering to cloth. These are their "Basics" set, so there are a lot of hues (Hue will be in the color name on the tube), rather then single pigment paints. It is an excellent set for the beginning painter. Besides brushes, they'll need a small bottle of Matt and Gloss Mediums. Avoid thinning with water, since that weakens the paint. Use Medium. Keep in mind that many of the paints are "Hues" of a named color. Hues are made up of more than one color pigment to mimic the more expensive pure pigments. Consequently, when creating a color by mixing "hues," the color doesn't always turn out the way expected. Also, note that acrylic paints dry quickly, so if you are experienced with oil paints where you load you pallet with lots of colors, they'll dry very quickly. (To continue work on painting still wet, use a hair dryer, or simply place the painting in the sun.) Use only the paint(s) needed for painting during your session. That's another reason for so many colors in the set, since repeating a color mixed on your painting, it's better to use, if possible, a single paint from the tubes. Also, each tube is marked to indicate whether it is opaque, transparent, or translucent. Rule One until you are experience painting with acrylics, avoid mixing opaque with the transparent or translucent paint. The opaque will usually overtake the transparent properties: mix opaques together, transparent paint and sometimes, translucent together. Experiment with a small bit when trying to achieve a color not included in the set.Read more ›

I really Love this set, but wish that the tubes were in 4 oz's, instead of the ml's that this set contains . other than that small thing, the set is first rate. i love how dark and bright the colors are and they are the right smoothness and thickness to make your own creations. so go wild and have fun,make whatever comes to mind literally. kudos to liquitex for making a fine product. like i've said though, just wish the tubes were bigger that's all,because you can run out paint fast after a few paintings.

Highly Recommended.

I had these paints sent to my artist daughter in Oregon for her birthday in the hopes that I made a good choice (knowing nothing about paints). When she received them, she was thrilled. She said they were an excellent quality and the colors were fantastic.

Size: 36-Tube Paint Set Verified Purchase
One complaint I have, is that there is only one small tube of white. White needs to be used with so many of the colors, so I wish there was a bigger tube of that, or two tubes. Also the type on the tubes is small and hard to read. Otherwise the set is fine.

the good: great vibrant colors, good price

the bad: the tubes have a lot of air inside, so the content is half of what you expect...

Great set! Gave it to my girlfriend for Christmas and she loves it. I'm kind of only going off what she says about it, but she's had a bit of experience with acrylic paints. She was very pleased with the "quality" of the paints and something about the tubes they come in. This is a great gift for artists who like painting, and i would recommend this set to anyone who would want to start painting. Thank you, and I hope you found this helpful.

Size: 36-Tube Paint Set Verified Purchase
I'm a mixed media artist and have ALL sorts of paints but I wanted to get a complete set as a "go to" for the studio as well as a starter set for my six year old daughter, who is REALLY into art.

This set totally fit the bill- the quality is good enough that I can use it in my work without worrying about durability, the investment was low so I can use as much as I need and share with my daughter without worrying about *literally* pouring it on the canvas and in our art journals.

The only thing I don't like about these paints is the color palette. It's very traditional, which is great for those looking to do traditional color mixing, but the colors are dark and there are TONS of browns and tans and rich reds. My work tends to be more vibrant and vivid, so these colors have to be REALLY mixed to pull the colors I need from the paints. And my daughter isn't drawn to them- she'd rather use the cheapy crummy craft paints in the squeeze bottles in the "fun" colors.

But overall, good purchase. I just wish they had a "brights" set.

BTW, this is a GREAT kit to buy along with a Gelli Plate- they work fabulous on the Gelli plate (the paints don't dry too fast, smooth out beautifully over the surface) and you can use them generously without worrying about the investment.
