Most people know of my love of Liquitex products...and yet, years ago when I began working with artist quality paints, I shied away from these. They brought back memories of my mom experimenting with liquid embroidery in the 1970's so I had this notion that they wouldn't be of any great quality. I've tried almost everything since but now I have used these products for fifteen years and am never disappointed. Though I do prefer heavy body paints, in the past few years I have begun to try out other items such as the soft body acrylics, acrylic markers, spray paints and now inks (which I love so far!). And I recently stumbled upon these tiny 22ml tubes (on the left) which fit beautifully into my pochade. They will be fantastic for travelling this summer.
Veronica, I've always been a Golden girl myself but this past winter have been reacting badly to, certainly all their mediums but also, acrylics as well. I've tested a bunch of companies and find Liquitex less reactive. Go figure!

Hey Jen...My family reacts to Golden as well and not to Liquitex. I purchase my supplies locally (Inglewood Art Supplies in Calgary) and online (Opus Art Supplies out of Vancouver) and tend to stock up when they're on sale. I also hit our local Michaels in Airdrie when there is a great deal even if I can only pick up one tube at a time. I hope that helps...and thank you for your kindness - it is always appreciated!
