In stock

Liquitex Basics paint is formulated to offer dependable standards of performance at a more affordable cost.

What is the difference between professional acrylic paints and student acrylic paints?
Professional acrylic paints such as Liquitex Heavy Body and Liquitex Soft Body are formulated to use the maximum amount of pigment to achieve the ideal mixing and working properties and are milled to achieve thorough and complete dispersion of pigment within the vehicle, regardless of the resources required.

Student acrylic paints such as Liquitex BASICS are formulated with sufficient pigment to offer dependable, if not ideal working properties and use pigments that in most cases require fewer resources so that they can be milled more quickly and efficiently - this means that they're going to give quality results at a great price.

This set contains 12 x 22ml tubes of Liquitex Basics Acrylic Colour.

Colours: Alizarian Crimson Hue Permanent, Primary Red, Cadmium Orange Hue, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Primary Yellow, Light Green Permanent, Phthalo Green, Primary Blue, Dioxazine Purple, Mars Black, Titanium White.

  • Begginers

    I feel that beginners shouldn't be encouraged to use student colours. It can give them the wrong impression of the medium.
    Start with the best that you can afford and then use the basics for jobs that don't particular matter.

    Buy alizarin red, cadmium yellow ultramarine blue and white, in heavy body, this should get you started
    Have fun!.

  • Okay for beginners

    I found that the opacity of these paints wasn't great, but I guess that is to be expected for such paints. They are useful if you are just starting out painting, but more experienced artists may want to invest in more expensive ones.

  • Really pleased with these paints

    I haven't done much painting since I finished school 10 years ago. I bought these to paint a wooden mask that I made for my boyfriend some years ago, which has been sitting unpainted.

    I haven't got far into the painting, but so far I am really satisfied with these paints. I have found them easy to use and easy to mix. I am painting on Balsa wood, which is extremely porous. I found that with the black paint I have needed to apply two or three coats, but after that the finish is perfect. With the other colours I have used, one coat has been just fine. I would definitely recommend these paints.
