US Art Supply 12ml Acrylic Tube Artist Paint Set Review

I love new art supplies. Especially when school is about to start. I plan to use US Art Supply 12ml Acrylic Tube Artist Paint in the classroom for demos.


This is a 12 color set:
  1. Titanium White
  2. Lemon Yellow
  3. Yellow Ochre
  4. Vermillion
  5. Crimson
  6. Hooker's Green
  7. Viridian
  8. Ultramarine Blue
  9. Cobalt Blue
  10. Burnt Sienna
  11. Raw Umber
  12. Lamp Black
 
The tubes are small, so this set is great for beginners, or sample painting. You can get a lot of variety in color without spending a fortune on paint. It's the perfect size for me to do demos in the classroom. I like smaller tubes because I go through the tubes before the paint dries out.

If you are a serious painter, that goes through a lot of paint than get bigger tubes. 

The paint is heavy bodied. I can tell it's not cheap paint. Cheap paint has water, or white added to the colors, which make them chalky looking.


Made in the US or China?

The company where these paints are sold out of is called U.S. Art Supply.
 
On the back of the box it says, "Made in China".  
 
I wish it was made in the U.S.  

Cost

$19.99 and on sale for $6.96.  

This is the final outcome of a small painting I did using the paint:


 The Apel's The Apel's The Apel's The Apel's The Apel'sThe Apel'sThe Apel's

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
