Most of the time, I use the less expensive acrylic paints. I use Folk Art or whatever brand Wal Mart carries. Like a lot of people, I’d rather not even go into Wal Mart but it’s the only game in town. I do order many of my art supplies from Dick Blick. On this page, I started with terra cotta acrylic paint and over painted with Jamaican sky paint. I had some problems getting this one to come together. It’s better if I just “do it” and not think about it so much.
