Reeves Acrylic Colour Paints x18 (including free brush), from Tesco and now Play.com
Now, I may be setting myself up for a major fail, however in these penny pinching times, the temptation of a bargain is always to hard to resist.
Whilst perusing my local Tesco store I saw this set of 18 acrylic paints for just Ã‚Â£4.50! Now I’m not claiming that they are going to be a replacement for Citadel or Vallejo paints, but at that price who can blame me for trying? That’s 18 paints for the price of about two (or three if you shop around) citadel paints!
Alright the pots are not even close to the size of the citadel/vallejo ones, but if you are looking for getting a good range of colours on the cheap, then they beat the pants off the others as the initial outlay on 18 different colours of the aforementioned would cost you Ã‚Â£36-42+VAT. Question is how many of those 18 would you use daily?
Oh and they throw in a nylon acrylic painting brush, which might be good for drybrushing at best or one to add to your child’s paintbrush collection.
As long as I use a decent quality undercoat I think these will coat and cure just fine.
Be interesting to see if the colours are as vibrant as other products. I’ll let you know if I have any success with them.
Worth a try?
Update: They are also available online from play.com for a little more than your local Tesco store though; currently Ã‚Â£5.99 with free delivery.
