Best STUDENT GRADE paints around Feb 20, 2012
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"

IF YOU GO TO A CRAFT STORE YOU WILL FIND THAT THIS PRODUCT IS EXPENSIVE!! YOU WILL SAVE AT LEAST 10 BUCKS BY BUYING IT ONLINE, THE QUALITY ITS THE SAME, AND YOU SAVE YOURSELF A TRIP TO THE STORE
for the amateur artist - May 23, 2013
By G. A. Taylor
For the amateur artist, however, it is a good product when working with children. And, for messing around for average painters.
