Hi Rachel: Here is my little working anecdotes. I have used acrylic for 20+ yrs. Presently, I like Liquitex. My friend, a highly successful realism painter and muralist, prefers the Golden jar acrylics. He works extremely large though, 6' and over. Tubes are fine for me. I also love mixing acrylic on a ceramic or glass dinner plate. Since they are plastic based, I can pick off the tried paint from the ceramic plate surface when needed. I rarely ever wash the plate. However, this can be annoying if little flecks of dried acrylic get into you new mix.
Good luck and happy painting!!!

I've used many different brands of acrylic paints and prefer Golden acrylic paints over any other brand.

I paint small and prefer to use paint from tubes.

I like using disposable palettes.
