FYI If anyone would like to sample the Sax brand of acrylics (or tempera)
please send me your address and I'll have some sent. Thanks, Judy

I've been using Liquitex Basics for a few years now. The best price I've
seen is about $3.99 per tube (okay, I have a good budget!) I had been
using Sax's own brand, which has a good consistency, and I think I
remember it mixed well. The reason for the switch was I wanted to try
the color wheel suggested in a book, which uses two of each primary
color. Sax didn't have that range.

Blickrylic is the worst, at least in tubes. It's very runny and
transparent. After all these years, I still have some tubes. Those are
what I generously lend to other teachers ;)
