Pretty sure links to informational videos are fine unless they are directly trying to sell product the whole video.




On the other hand you can get the same final opacity by using more paint since acrylics have more resistance to physical constraints on their application (i.e you can pile up a really absurd amount of paint without serious side effects). Nothing is perfect.. but at the same time... nothing is perfectly bad as well

Absolutely true, it is just preference, nothing wrong with any media choice.

Re: YInMn blue

You can buy the pigment if you wanted to try it in oils:

Awesome, except that is the England store, but the price and quantity would allow for comparable production to other medium-high priced paints, like Cobalt. There may be issues with getting it shipped... US customs may not allow a pigment that is still being processed by our government.

sent it to a friend in europe and let him make the paint and send you. I really doubt customs check what color a paint is specifically.. they would never have any work completed that way.. They probably either accept handcrafted paint.. .or not, regardless of the pigment.
