Hi Crazi,

Much has been discussed on this subject. Here is just one of several threads for you to visit to help make your decision:

If you are already a painter wishing to switch to acrylic, use professional paints. If you are painting for the first time, I suggest a small kit of basic colors first to learn how to use the paints. Then if you like them, go right for the good brands. The prices are marginally different and the quality is superior. The surface you use is also important.

You can also hit the "search" button above to find all comments made regarding acrylic brands.
