#SoulArtStudio Acrylic Paint Set of 12 #Review

     My kids love art.  In fact, I'm pretty happy to say that everyone in my family enjoys art.  We enjoy looking at it and making it.  Mostly making it.  We do scrapbooking, sculpting, sewing, drawing, crafting, painting... we just LOVE doing art.  It's who we are.  I'm so glad my kids all have that love.  
     So in our home, I like to try to keep lots of art supplies on hand.  I don;t want the kids' creativeness stifled because they don't have a means to create.  They have things that I never had access to when I was a kid... chalk markers, pastels, canvas, charcoal, paint... things I would have dreamed of having at their age.
     One of Punk's newest supplies is an acrylic paint set by Soul Art Studio.  I feel like she's big enough now to be able to use them without making a big mess.  So she has an easel, a canvas, and paints.  Brushes are kept and given by me when needed.  But she has all the other essentials at her disposal.
     These paints are a perfect size for a beginner artist.  They aren't the full size you'd get if you were used to doing lots of large canvases, but they are quite bigger than other tubes that you get in art sets.  As you can see in the photo above, they are pretty nice sized, more than big enough to create many masterpieces and to get a real feel for how the paints work.
     This set came with 12 colors.  The colors range from primaries to secondaries and even hues that have no real "color".  I honestly would have loved to see a second green in there, a lighter one perhaps.  But the colors that are in it are beautiful when put on paper, or anything else really.
     One thing I did notice is that the white isn't actually white, it's more like a very light grey called "Chinese White".  It helps it to stand out on a white canvas and it's pretty close to white, so when it's in a painting you won't be able to tell it's not white.  I just thought it was interesting.
     We tried this out on cardboard and wooden objects and found that they cover nicely.  They did a good job and not too much was needed. Those streaks you see was due to my terrible choice in brushes.  This is my "Dracula Snowman" that Punk made for me *HEART*
     We enjoyed these and I would get them again if I needed paints.  To learn more, click the link above or check out Soul Art Studio on their website, MyKarmaSoul.com.
