All acrylic paints are not created equal. Golden Fluid Acrylic paints have been my go to since 2015 through a little accident that I didn't feel the shop owner should have pay for. Yep, I opened a bottle of paint and gave it a little squeeze. 'Blurped' it all over the lid, now who would want to buy
2 oz of used paint for $7. So I paid for my new paint, took it home and applied it to my Gelli Plate. Talk about serendipity, this paint spread ultra thin, was translucent making absolutely glorious mono-prints (check out the Mono Print Birds). Fast forward to 2019 and I'm preparing to teach an introductory acrylic painting class. By now I have painted hundreds of paintings using my beloved paints but what paint should I use for an introductory class and how do these relatively expensive paints compare to other brands and types of acrylic paints?
