Good Product, but check your order
from Seattle, WA
Comments about Chromacryl Acrylic Essentials:
This is a great product but I just wish that they would check the dates on the bottle before they ship them out. The order I received last week had bottles with a manufactured date of March 2015. That means that the paint is 2 years old already. I just wish they did better inventory control and rotated out their stock properly. I have had to send paint back because it was too old and clumpy. Although there have been a few issues, Blick Art has been awesome and speedy getting me replacement paint. Just an FYI, open a few bottles as soon as you get the order to check the quality, also double check the date on the bottle if there are any issues.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent paints and great service
from Highlands Ranch, CO
I order these acrylic paints for elementary school kids to use to paint the set for our school musical. They mix well and dry fast. The colors are vibrant. I am always pleased with the quality.

My middle school and high school students are enjoying the pump in the 1/2 gallon paints. I am enjoying less mess!

I bought this paint to use for paint nights and for kids' classes. The paint is so thick it takes forever to dry! Definitely not ideal if you only have 2 hours to finish a 16x20. I always bring hairdryers but this is not ideal for a whole group of people who need to dry their paintings. For instance, I painted a purple background today for a party. I watched football and came back 7 hours later to do the foreground. The foreground is white and the purple is blending with it!! It's been 7 hours! What is happening? It says fast drying right on the bottle but it is everything but. I have the 16 ounce bottles and the half gallons and am really regretting my purchase. :-( I'm trying to figure out how to do parties without massive bleeding into colors...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I use these paints for class that I teach in nursing homes. They are an OK quality. Some colors such as orange and purple do not cover well at all. One of my purples arrived with a chunky texture which is not usable. I will continue to search for an inexpensive but decent quality acrylic paint.
Fair for the price
from Lost Bridge, AR
Good for the price but coverage and pigment is week. Also color mixing is not the great when it comes to creating greens.
Excellent quality paint

The Chromacryl Acrylic paints are so thick and creamy. It's kind of like colored pudding! The block out white, is great for making tints, because it doesn't take as much as other brands. My students love the texture and blendability. The gallon jugs are the best value.

This Paint Ruins Lives
By Vincent Van Gogh Away
Chromacryl black acrylic paint is the worst quality acrylic I have ever had the displeasure of using. Due to this heartwrenchingly terrible paint, I have had to redo the background for a 3'x 4' painting. Despite being "dry," the paint bleeds into the other colors, dulling them and causing them to appear grey. If you value the quality of your artwork, do not purchase this paint, especially the black. I'm incredibly disappointed.
