I recently received an oil paint set with 12 different colors as a gift. This set of tubes was sold at a very low price for around 3€ so I was curious about the paint’s quality and as I expected, the quality is very low. Although this blog is also about saving money with your classical art studies I don’t recommend these types of paint. Because if you save on the wrong things you’ll propably pay twice. Maybe these paints are sufficient for making color exercises but for a painting that needs to turn out very well and keeps it’s colors for a long time you definitely need to buy high quality paint!
But I let the pictures speak for themself (I guess I don’t need to explain which is which; click on the pictures for a larger view)
