Paint for painting in 12/th scale
So far I have used acrylic paints only for crafts projects and the paints I used were crafts or students quality. I have dabbled in other media yet shunned acrylics because I could not wrap my mind around a paint that dries so quickly and that cannot be dissolved again.
In any case... I want to paint furniture in 1/12 th scale in a folkloristic painting style. Since this is a miniature scale, I am looking for a paint that is neither too fluid nor too thick, that can be applied thinly and smoothly and still be opaque when I need it too.
I am assuming that what is true for other media is true for acrylics as well: you get what you pay for and artist grade paints outperform student grade paints.
I am not likely to use much paint. In fact, I assume I'll loose more paint to drying on the palette than to the actual painting. So while I hope I won't have to torture the piggy bank too much, the small scale should make an investment in quality colours possible.
Can somebody suggest me a brand that would fulfill my requirements? My thanks in advance.
