Acrylic Painting Set

I received the US Art Supply 19-Piece Acrylic Painting Set through a promotion.

Product Info:
  • 3-Piece 24cm x 30cm canvas panels
  • 12-Piece 12mL acrylic paint colors
  • Small wood pallet
  • 3-Piece bristle paint brushes
The US Art Supply's Acrylic Painting Set is a great set for beginner painters or someone who wants a variety of colors in one set. 

The canvases are a nice, medium sized canvases. They were packaged well in shipping and had no damage to them. They were wrapped tightly together to keep them from sliding around or rubbing against each other too much. 

The wooden pallet is okay. I prefer to use plastic ones because they're easier to wash, but if dried paint on a pallet doesn't both you, either style works well. The wooden pallet is a nice size. The thumb hole makes it easy to hold the pallet while painting. The main downside I didn't like about this wood pallet is that the wood had some rough spots on them. It's spots where one could get slivers from. 

The colors are fantastic! The markings on the containers of paint are true to what the color turns out to be once it dries. The colors cover majority of the basic colors one could need or want with painting, and you can mix paints to get different colors or tones. The paint dries fairly quickly.

The brushes were a bit disappointing. The bristles were very brittle and stiff. The bristles didn't stick well together, even with paint on them. There was always a few fly aways that were sticking out at random angles. For beginner painters, for kids, or those who enjoy abstract painting, this wouldn't be too much of a problem. For those who are more into detail or those who have perfectionist tendencies when painting, this could be an issue. 

Overall, this paint set is really nice. It covers the basic painting materials. My favorite part is the variety of colors.
