Welcome to dickblick
Tri-Art's High Finest Quality Artist Acrylics are premium quality artist paints designed to satisfy the most discerning artists. Their unique consistency allows for bold impasto effects that are normally associated only with oil colors.
Tri-Art acrylics have a smooth, buttery texture that retains brush and knife marks, yet is not stiff or difficult to manipulate. They are manufactured with 100% pure acrylic emulsion, producing a tough yet flexible film with excellent resistance to water, chemicals, light, and ultraviolet radiation.
Only the highest quality pigments, selected for purity and lightfastness, are used. Because no fillers or extenders are used, most colors dry to a natural gloss, while those with larger pigment particles create a more satin finish.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

AWESOME Tri-Art Acrylics !
I can't say that Tri-Art acrylics are the best in their category, because I haven't tried everything Dick Blick has to offer in acrylics! However, it's the Best I've ever tried. I luv the smooth creamy texture, it's spreadibility, the bright colours. I ordered just the colours I would need for this particular painting, but I'll be ordering more. I'm not a professional artist but get discouraged with inferior paints. These are the best I've ever used!

Love it and hate it!
from GTA Canada
I love everything about the paint - The consistency of the paint - The intensity of the colour - Everything ....Except it dries out in the tube! What a waste of beautiful paint. I have tubes that I have never used that are completely hard. Meanwhile I have paints that are over 10 years old that I "inherited" from my kids that still are soft and fresh.If Tri-Art can guarantee that they have somehow fixed this problem I would love to buy it again but until then I will avoid it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: In general, Acrylic paints have roughly a two-year shelf life. This is also dependent on storage conditions and if the tubes have ever been opened. Some formulas will dry out faster than others. For additional information or support, we encourage you to contact our Product Experts at 1.800.933.2542. We are happy to see if we can provide you any additional information or suggestions!

I say it's a total rip-off from the standpoint that while pricing is attractive, the product is useless. Caps broke with little use, especially the hinges. Paints stiffened or dried in the tubes. I can't use it. On the plus side, Dick Blick was especially generous and prompt in accepting all the used product for credit.
Merchant response: We are sorry to hear about the issues you encountered with this product. We appreciate the opportunity to help make things right and hope we can assist you again in the future.

These are really nice.
from The Twin Cities
I tried a few colors on a whim. They are really nice to work with. I've noticed lately that some of the leading brands (you know them) seem to be getting worse, as if they're adding more water or binders or something. I don't know but they've changed for the worse somewhat. The TriArt paints seem to have more pigment. they are rich. They seem to have a bit more open time before they dry and the colors don't darken nearly as much as other acrylics when they do dry. Much more like a traditional oil paint which I like. The product is great. I'd love to redesign their packaging because it doesn't nearly do justice to this wonderful brand from our friends in Kingston, Ontario. Perhaps it's a tradition they like or something but the packaging is so bad it's almost off-putting. What is inside the ugly packaging however, is terrific. Last but not least: Virtually no one in the United States stocks these. Please Dick Blick. Start making TriArt products available in your stores. They're great to work with and I think tons of artists who paint with acrylics would agree.

I have to say when I tried this paint for the first time yesterday, I just fell in love with the vibrant color and even flow that it provided. Very impressed!
Just a bit different -in a good way!
from Madison, WI
Tri-Art has some uique colors and an interesting consistency. It's kind of hard to describe, but Tri-Art seems to keep more translucency in thick layers than some of the other brands. I especially like it for creating textured paint surfaces with a painting knife. If you are a knife painter, these are definitely worth a try. Of course it's fine with a brush too. I first bought these in tubes, which I think are only available in Canada. But the jars are the same quality, and it's easier to get all the paint out.
Exceptional quality acrylics
from Chicago, IL
The smooth, easy-to-brush consistency of Tri-Art acrylic paint is perfect for my style of working. Plus, the colors are vibrant and easy to blend. Extremely high quality paints. Buy some Tri-Art acrylics and you won't regret it!

Although these are not the only brand of acrylics I use, they have a few colors you can't get anywhere else. They are easy to use and work fine with other brands.
