I searched high and low for this large set of 48 colors. The tube size is generous and the colors are true quality! Delivery was quick! (3 days!) The only problem I had was when puncturing the seal for the first time on the tubes the paint tended to spurt out as if under pressure. This may, however, be due to the fact that I live at high altitude (6000 ft.) This tip may help for those of you who have the same problem: Use a safety pin to puncture the seal instead of the point on the lid. Leave the safety pin in for a few seconds to allow the pressure to release slowly. When you remove the pin you shouldn't lose any paint.

This has to be one of the best purchases I've made. The colors are great and it gives you a wonderful samples to work with. The paint covers nicely and works well even with the modeling paste on canvas.

i love this paint. it lasts for a long time, because you really dont need that much and it spreads wonderfully. the only thing is some colors (not very many) are a little different from the tube color, which is to be expected i guess. but overall i love it

This is a great acrylic paint set for someone starting art class or the new hobbyist. Gives you all you need and there is a lot of paint in each tube.

Although they were expensive, these acrylic paints worked amazing. I am a 13-year-old girl who loves to paint, and these were the highest quality of paint I have ever purchased! I would recommend these to anyone with 45 bucks! A+++

I started painting two years ago. I started off with the liquitex variety pack. Yes, it is true that some of the bottles could be a little less full than others but for the most part, you get a good quality/variety of paint for a VERY decent price. I work with a number of brands of acrylics. I use Golden as well, but they are super expensive and I only buy the primary colors in order to make the colors I want. Sometimes this is a pain in the you know what. When it is, I can always count on my liquitex to find just the right color I need at that time. I varnish all of my paintings so the matte color isn't a problem. As another reviewer stated, be very careful with opening. Some people (depending on the seller) receive bottles already opened and they spill out, or you receive the full closed bottles which should be punctured with a safety pin or thin sewing needle so you don't lose paint! Overall, great product. I am very satisfied.

I am using these paints for wargame miniature painting and am happy with the results. They mix well, but you need to use a flow enhancer when painting minis. I use my own mix, but Liquitex makes a product called "Flow-Aid" that is designed for that purpose. I like the vibrancy of the colors, and this box comes with several colors that are just slightly different, allowing for quick wash/drybrush combos. Also comes with 4 metallic colors and 2 blacks (mars and ivory).
