Last summer I started to teach myself to paint and I bought a fair amount of supplies and worked out what was good and what wasn’t. I’d consider Daler Rowney a good brand for art s… Read more

Agree with above, To add, it's also the quality of the pigments used. An indication of some quality is if a range of paints goes up in series. Series 1 are the cheaper pigments eg the "earth" colours - umbers, ochres plus titanium white then the cadmium reds and yellows (essential colours basically) are usually series 2 and slightly more expensive. You rarely need to buy any Series 3 or 4 colours to get started - Also cheaper paints will fade on your completed painting - the lightfastness /permanence will be poor compared to quality paints. The feel for mixing and handling will be very different. They should not feel like the cheap poster paints we had at school. I teach painting to adults so while it shouldnt cost a bomb to start it helps to use quality paints for the start. A lot of "starter" painting sets are put together by people who never actually paint or dont know the basics of colour paint theory and mixing so they can miss out essential colours. You only need Cadmium red Cadmium Yellow Lemon Yellow Permanent alizarin crimson or permanent rose Ultramarine blue Cerulean blue plus white and say, umber to get going. you can mix most colours from the above or other colours can be bought separately if/when needed.


It's the lack of pigment, paint is made up of two things, pigment and binder - the cheaper the paint is the less pigment it will contain and that means they will use binder which is massively cheaper. Cheaper paint could also have opacity issues, titanium white for example should be very opaque, cheap brands of titanium white are very transparent (due to lack of pigment!). The other problem I had with cheap paint was huge colour shift from wet to dry , this is virtually eliminated in the brands I now use (Daler Rowney Cryla and Winsor Newton Artists' Acrylic). It's my opinion that if someone is learning to paint they should not hamper themselves, because it's hard enough to learn already! The rest of the set looks OK but personally I would just spend the £25 on some artists grade acrylic paints


Interesting... what makes bad acrylic (or any paint?) bad? I’m still learning and so far I’m likel DR and Derwent materials. Is it a lack of pigment or too thin? Thank you, all advice much appreciated! This is my third ever piece, as you can see I have a very long way to go


Daler Rowney is a good brand, but the Simply range is the cheapest range they do and it's awful. Buying cheap acrylic paints isn't a good idea IMO, it leads to huge frustration.


Good price, I wouldn't use half of it so won't get it but If you can make use of it all you won't beat the price individually

If the OP was as irritating as a child as his description suggests, one is not surprised he was bullied.
