Blick is the largest and oldest art supplier in the United States, and has a wonderful variety of high quality acrylic paints. Blick Studio Acrylics are student grade, with 60 highly pigmented colors to choose from, all with a smooth, creamy texture. For the price, Blick makes some of the best acrylic paint on the market for students, comparable to the products in our Best Acrylic Paint Set buyer\u2019s guide.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Blick Studio Acrylics\r\nFor great value and quality acrylic paint, you can\u2019t go wrong with Blick Studio Acrylics. Blick is a great option for students and beginners on a budget, available in a wide range of different colors and hues. Sets of up to 48 non toxic colors are available on Blick\u2019s website; for about $45 for 48 tubes, you\u2019re getting a great deal.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nBlick Studio Acrylics are brightly colored, with a high pigment load for intense hues. They dry matte (unlike the glossy finish of the Soho Urban Artist Heavy Body Acrylic Paint Set), and the colors retain their vibrancy even when dried on the canvas. The texture is smooth and creamy, not too thick and not too runny. The colors are consistent from tube to tube. They blend easily both on the palette and on the canvas. However, don\u2019t expect a heavy body acrylic paint with Blick; these student grade paints do not cover as well as more traditional heavy body acrylics.\r\nValue\r\nFor new artists and students on a tight budget, Blick acrylic paints are incredibly affordable, and are some of the best value for your money. Blick\u2019s Titanium White is great for mixing and highlighting, and is a great, cheap basic color to stock up on. Blick\u2019s paints are also certified non toxic by ACMI\u2019s Toxicological Advisory Board. However, more experienced artists should note that these are studio quality paints, not artist grade. If you\u2019re looking for true artists' acrylics, you might want to look at another brand. Compare Blick with Liquitex Basics 48 Tube Acrylic Paint Set or another heavy body, artist quality paint.\r\nBlick Studio Acrylics Wrap Up\r\nFor a student grade paint, Blick makes great quality acrylics. With a high pigment, vibrant colors, and a smooth texture, Blick is perfect for student artists on a tight college budget. The low price is perfect for stocking up. Unfortunately, these are not professional grade paints, so more experienced artists will want to look elsewhere, perhaps at the Arteza Metallic Acrylic Paint Set.
