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.

Solved my problem affordably
from Near St. Louis, Missouri
Comments about Grumbacher Academy Acrylics:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

No problems. I'm happy.
from Greenville, SC
The paint is too transparent so I have to paint multiple coats, but it has a smooth good consistency. It doesn't have any lumps and it is not chunky.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good for what I need.
from Frederick, MD
I'm a newbie painter with one class behind me, so until the next one, I've been dabbling and buying paints. These are good to work with, though I do have some higher-end paints as well. I'm such a newb that I can't really tell much difference yet. So far, this paint works well for me and I assume other beginners.The real value came from shopping here at Blick's. They are far and away less expensive than anything I can find in a store, even on sale. Blick's has a great variety and were quick to deliver.
