Welcome to dickblick
Grumbacher's Academy line is ideal for the art student, offering near professional quality at a uniform and affordable price. Unlike many of the so-called "budget" brands, Grumbacher uses genuine and pure pigments, such as pure cadmiums, to produce Academy Acrylics.
Hues are carefully formulated to provide authentic tints, and just the right masstones, undertones, and mixtures. Colors are lightfast, consistent, opaque, and demonstrate strong adhesion.
Because Academy Acrylics are subjected to the same tough quality standards as Grumbacher's professional paints, colors are supremely consistent from batch to batch. This means that students can easily achieve the right color mixtures without frustration or waste.
Individual tubes are available in 90 ml metal tubes, 75 ml plastic tubes or 200 ml plastic tubes.

High quality, low price
from Pacific Coast
Comments about Grumbacher Academy Acrylics:
For the reasonable price, this paint is really good. I use it mostly on canvas but also on canvas paper and it works very well on both.Pros: Excellent color selection. Good coverage for most colors, though a couple are not as opaque as I would like. Goes on smoothly and spreads easily. Colors can be blended without getting muddy. Works well with dry-time extenders to allow wet-on-wet blending. Glazes well with glazing medium. Paint works well with a variety of brush application methods - dry brush, scumbling, fine detail work, etc. Dries to a subtle, soft sheen.Cons: Not too many. Some colors not as opaque as I would like, as noted above. Also, if you like to see brush strokes or do impasto, this paint is just not thick enough. Does not lend itself to application with a knife. It comes out of the tube fairly thick, but levels out on the canvas, which can be a pro or a con depending on what you want. Overall, this is an excellent paint, especially for the price. I've used some more expensive paints that were not as good.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great product, great supplier
I have always thought that Grumbacher's level rating should be a #3 level and not a 2. It is buttery and smooth and takes any added mediums well. Good value, good paint.
Good with new tube caps!
from Brooklyn, NY
Good paint. Clean mixtures. Does not change color after drying.
Great Deal for the Price
I plan on ordering a few more tubes. It is a very good deal for the price. Excellent paint!
Solved my problem affordably
from Near St. Louis, Missouri
I used the cheapest acrylics I could find until I was fed up with the number of layers required to achieve the opacity I desired. With these, two coats does it. I am satisfied.

Grumbacher paints are very consistent and fluid. Good dry time and vibrant colors. For an artist these are important qualities to have in a less expensive paint.
