This great set is perfect for those just starting out in acrylic painting and contains everything you need to get started:
Made from smooth, hard-wearing beech wood. The board has a working area of 450 x 317mm which will comfortably fit A3 size work & also provides sufficient space for masking the perimeter of A3 work if desired. It can be adjusted to 5 different positions (one of which also acts as the closing position) – these are approximately: 180°, 38°, 54°, 67° and 79°.
Contained in soft (yet durable) plastic tubes. They can be squeezed easily and with consistency ensuring quality is maintained and no paint is wasted. Fresh paint from the moment you receive your set.
These vibrant colours and richly pigmented paints are formulated for maximum brilliance and colour clarity with a buttery consistency for easy mixing and blending. Each paint has a fantastic thick consistency which will retain brush or spatula marks and give your work brilliant texture. Suitable for most paintable surfaces including paper/card, stretched canvas, wood, glass, plastic, foam, ceramic and more! The colours included are: Titanium White, Lamp Black, Burnt Umber, Medium Yellow, Crimson, Emerald Green, Cerulean Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Violet & Yellow Ochre.
The paints are 100% safe – Non-toxic; ASTM D-4236 and EN71 Certified.
Anti-shedding, synthetic brushes made from high quality fibres to give you a consistent stroke every time. The set consists of: Round No.0, 4 & 8, Flat No. 10 with a Long Flat 3/4″.
Durable brush handles are designed for maximum strength & comfort and can also be used with oil paints as well as acrylic. Supplied in a plastic wallet so all your brushes are kept safe and are portable.
15 sheets of fine-grain, linen-textured, artist quality 260 gsm paper. Primed to ensure you get the right level of absorbency & adhesion. Can be used with oil-based paint & acrylic paint and brushes. Each sheet is gum-bound at the top of the pad to ensure that each page is secure, yet easy to remove cleanly if desired.
This easy-hold palette contains 6 large wells and 11 smaller ones.
I got this set as a gift for Christmas.
The choice of colours is very good, I was able to use them (or make a suitable variant) when following video tutorials. The easel really does make a difference, works nicely on my home office desk. The paper is solid stock, although I do wonder if the paint would flow more easily if I had primed it with gesso? But again as for beginners, this is hardly a concern. The brushes are great, there's enough variety to try out different paint strokes. The handle length is about right for the size of the paper (A3).
The only downside is the missing palette, but any flat surface will do (I use plastic take away lids) Mark Sta Ana (Norfolk, England) on 10 Feb 2021
Great beginners set, except my box didn't contain the plastic palette. Service/delivery were good. Paul (Reading, United Kingdom) on 6 Feb 2021
