Reply To: Do paint brands make a difference?

Sandra Strait

Unfortunately, you are probably not going to get very good results with those paints.  I haven’t tried that brand but given the price, I’m not surprised at the problems you are seeing.  Have you tried adding water to the the cakes – enough so that there is a film of water across the top – and letting it soak for 3-5 minutes? This might soften the paint enough so you can get more pigment.  Your brushes can affect how well the paint spreads too.

It isn’t impossible to get something decent with cheaper paints, but you’ll need to use more like you are coloring than painting.
