Off to Dick Blick we go (ok, I opened my computer, work with me here!). We lamented, drooled, dreamed and puzzled over Golden paint colors, palettes, paint holders and all things painterly. What fun we had for a whole week, planning and strategizing, reading reviews and thinking COLOR. Finally she settled on twenty-two glorious colors, it took some convincing but finally I won the war that she didn't just have to get the basics, she could get some cool, interesting premixed colors too. Like titanium buff and quinacridone magenta. She's old school, you mix your own, but now there's something like nearly one hundred colors of heavy body Golden acrylics to choose from!! The prices were quite reasonable so I sold her on the idea of choosing a few unique colors that she really loved and may have trouble mixing herself. We purchased all the colors in the 2 oz tube size except black and white, we figured as she decides on her favorites we can upgrade to the larger jars. Here's all the puurrrty colors that arrived a few days ago!
