The price and quality you get in these student grade paints can't be beat.

-They're okay when extended with medium. You have to use a lot of them in the medium to not lose the colour. I recommend using a professional medium with them if you can afford it. I definitely noticed a difference when I used Liquitex gel mediums vs Golden or Winsor & Newton.

-The pigment load is okay, but will not look "vibrant". Some of the colours are noticeably brighter than others when mixed with medium (Pthalo blue looks great for example, whereas primary yellow tends to look flat)

-They don't hold up to the test of time well, the lightfastness is not great but definitely better than other student grade paints.

I recommend these for:
-Art students/any school based painting project
-Hobbyist or new painter
-Experimentation with new techniques

I do not recommend these for:
-Paintings you intend to give as a gift (or keep)
-Paintings you intend to sell
-Anyone past "student"

I wanted to get acrylic paint but I wanted to start off with basics, this did just that more me. It's easy to mix colors to make tons of new ones.mthe shades are very true to their colors. In comparison this is about what'd you pay if you bought a bunch of 2oz tubes by them self, more for the same price well sure why not?! Comes with white and black too, so you can lighten and darken your colors. I don't know much about acrylic paint but it does it's job, it's thick ( I like that ) but easily thinned with some water.

Absolutely wonderful! I adore these paints. I'm a casual painter, but really experienced in color theory. These paints are great for the price, and easy to blend. I will definitely buy more of these in the future.

I'm just starting to learn acrylic painting and this set is perfect. It has all the colors necessary to mix up any color you could want. You really don't need anything other than what is here. If bought separately, these paints would cost around $50, so this price is a great value.

Just started painting and so far these paints are perfect for me. Great to start with. I mix my own colors by just trial and error and I am pretty happy with the results.
The paint goes on smooth and dries within 10 minutes, which is good because a few times I made mistakes and was able to take a wet paper towel and just wipe off the paint with out disturbing the paint on the layer underneath that had already dried. Once its dry tho I dont think it will come out.

Great paints to start with. My sister who is a professional artist also gave her approval (for what that's worth).

These paints work so well, you can easily mix any color you want the pigments are so rich, this is a very good price for the size of these tubes, you will pay more for them at any art store. They also shipped very fast can in well before they said it would.

I cannot stop raving about these paints. The size is much larger than you'd expect for the price on this set. You get alot of paint for your money! The quality is smooth, consistant, and seems to have a rich pigment. I have purchased several of these sets and will continue to do so. The color range is unlimited when you start with the basics! My only suggestion would be to have the titanium white be a larger tube. But if you purchase another titanium white tube when ordering this, you will have enough project possibilities to last quite awhile!
