It really turned me off so I ordered some of Dick Blick's Studio paints which I thought would be the equivalent of the Basics line. They were not really pigmented enough for my taste so now I am slowly building up a supply of Dick Blick professional acrylics. They have a 2 oz tube size that is generous enough to last through a number of paintings, so I get that for less frequently used colors, and the bigger 4.65 oz tubes for the "staples". To be fair, I do have a couple of the bigger tubes of Liquitex Basics that are older than this set and they seem to be holding up well over time. As far as colors go, I like LB's light blue violet, which is a completely different, darker shade than DB Studio's version, and not available in DB Pro.
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.
