I’ve decided that I am now the unofficial spokesman for Liquitex Acrylic Paint. Granted, I am a very unconventional spokesman, because I don’t think the paint itself is even close in superiority to other brands, like Golden Acrylics, but it does have something going for it — it is decently priced for beginners.

If you’re thinking about learning how to paint with acrylics, this paint can be found so cheaply that you can afford to be experimental and screw up multiple times.
As you may have noticed in some of my other posts, I have learned most of what I know through trial and error — and that means “screwing up and experimenting.”
Liquitex can produce nice paintings, don’t get me wrong–it just isn’t a premium paint. It’s student grade. But that fine for most folks just starting out, and, in fact, it is ideal. I believe you should make as many mistakes as you can — as long as you learn from them.
