Alternative paints

Post  grots life on Thu Jun 16, 2011 6:38 pm

Hobby Lobby and Michaels sell Folk Art, Americana and Apple Barrel paints for between $.97 to about $1.50 for a 2 oz. bottle. They are kinda goopy, so they will require watering down. I find that 2 parts water to 1 part paint works well for me. That gives you 6 oz. of usable paint for around a buck compared to .4 oz of Citadel paint for $4! If you keep an eye on the sales flyers, you can sometimes find them for as little at $.45 each. They come in a huge range of colors too. Something to think about next time you are putting down a ton of cash for a tiny bit of paints.
