I work on a project for charity, and I use a lot of acrylic paint for it. When I started buying the paints I had no idea about paints. I was standing in the paint aisle asking if certain paints could be used on wood. I ended up buying My Studio Acrylic Craft Paint as my main paint purchase with another brand in a couple of colors My Studio was out of.
I lve these paints. They ae inexpensive, pour easily out of the containers, coat well, and come in TONS of colors! Another really goodthing about them is the paint washes out of the paintbrushes easily. The other paint I use doesn't. My kids even like using this paint. And it is cheap enough that I can let them without having to worry about having to replace the paint at an ungodly amount! They have used it for fingerainting, sponge painting, painting on canvas, and painting on paper.
I use it for painting wooden plaques and wooden hands for pediatrc cancer patients.
If you are working on an art project I would definitely saygo out and buy some My Studio Acrylic Paint.
