The New Acrylic Paint Set from Eunectes is the Perfect Spring Gift!
Earlier today we were talking about painting the town', Mardi Gras style, and now I have a way for YOU to paint your world:
This new Acrylic Paint Set from Eunectes contains not 10 or 12 paints, but 24 of the highest-quality, intense, professional acrylic paints! The paints allow you to create beautiful artwork, that showcases YOUR sense of color! The 24 paints give you an ideal range of colors that are equally useful for artists, serious amateurs and schools. The complete color range is shown below:
You get one tube each of:
Titanium White, Lemon Yellow, Yellow Mid, Orange Yellow, Scarlet Lake, Vermilion, Orange, Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo Blue, Cobalt Blue, Cerulean Blue, Green Light, Emerald Green, Viridian, Sap Green, Raw Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Red Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Vandyke Brown, Black
And then 2 tubes of Zinc White, so you have plenty to mix with your colors!
A key point to these tubes is their unique opening feature- they are sealed and you use the inset of the top of their caps to open them. I recommend having a q-tip handy to take the paint off of the opener, otherwise, if you wipe it with anything else, it might get messy. This is also helpful for keeping your unused paints fresh, thanks to the sealed tops!
A great benefit of these paints is that the colors can be mixed with a wide variety of mediums, including blank canvas, wood, clay, fabric, nail art and ceramic pieces! Which means this is a multi-use set, that gives you more bang for your buck!
The colors are VERY bright right out of the tubes, as you can see:
The paint features a really smooth formulation, that gives even the beginner painter even and consistent coverage! And the paints dry with the same bright, satin color, that gives you a non-soluable finish!
Letting the 9 year old loose with the paints was a level of faith, as I wasn't sure if she would not handle the tubes with ease and we'd have paint everywhere! But thanks to the ease of use she was able to get the tubes opened, into the try and even made multiple mixes with ease! As you can see, she got strong vibrant color from the paints. She's still undecided whether to give the background a watercolor look, or use the paints as they are, so sorry no finished picture yet!
An added bonus from Eunectes is a QR code on the box, that allows you to access their ebook that features a series of tips that will help you get started painting quickly and help to improve your technique! You can also access the ebook by signing up for their newsletter, on their webpage,
My ONLY complaint with the set is that the plastic holder is pretty flimsy, so you WILL need another holder for your paints. But otherwise this is a fun gift set for kids, that is also perfect for adults, to express their creativity in new, vibrant ways! And it will make your Spring a lot more colorful!
