CubeCraft 12 x 27ml Acrylic Paint Set {Review}

Acrylics are my favorite paint medium. I like to mix things with them, and with other paint mediums I find what you can mix with them to be limited.

I got an Acrylic Paint Set from CubeCraft to review. 

I really like the variety of colors! 
These colors are featured in order starting with white and going counter clockwise.

  • Chinese White
  • Primary Lemon Yellow
  • Yellow Ochre 
  • Burnt Sienna
  • Burnt Umber
  • Ivory Black
  • Cobalt Violet
  • Cobalt Blue 
  • Cerulean Blue
  • English Light Green
  • Alizarin Crimson 
  • Primary Red Cadmium

The paint is ASTM D-4236 certified, which means it's independently certified as non-toxic, and safe for use and it is odorless. This would be a great set for kids, or people that suffer from allergies or asthma.

It doesn't say, but the paints seem student grade. They are not heavy bodied acrylics. I like this type of paint to make washes, and to mix in with my other mediums. You can see how easily the paint squirts out.

They are pretty big tubes of paint. They are 27ml, with is more than most tubes.

I'm pretty hesitant to show 1/2 done work, but I've been working on a painting. I'm trying out something new. I put different kinds of salt down on a layer of Elmer's glue. Painted with washes on top, and now I'm sewing in the lines. I still have a lot to do, but here's a start after using some of these paints:

As you can see I have to sew the vertical lines into the igloo. I didn't even show all of it. The igloo is sitting on polar icecaps that are melting. I have yet to decide if I want to include a polar bear in the background, on top of the igloo, or trying to swim amongst the melted water. Decisions! How would you finish it up?

The white in the painting is the glue and salt. The rest is paint.

The cost of the acrylic set:

$26.95 and it's on sale for $16.95. You can get the set on Amazon. It comes with 12 tubes of colored paint, and 1 small pallet. 

Disclaimer: I received this paint set at a discount for the purpose of this review. The opinions are 100% mine.

I bet this would be great to work with hand print / foot print projects with the kiddos!
Thanks for the heads up!
