Has any one used the wildlife acrylics? I saw them on the net while looking for paint and there price is hard to beat. I'm just not sure if their colors are all that good. I also saw the acrylics at wall-mart are they any good or should I stay away. :wink:

I have used the acrylic and really like them. Their color really comes out after applying the clearcoat.

I have been using Plaid "Folk Art" and thinning alot for airbrushing. It has worked fairly well for me. But I spent a long time talking to Plaids product knowledge speciaist and she reccomended the Michaels "Craft Smart". It costs $0.50 a bottle instead of $2.00 a bottle. :) Plaid makes this paint also. Seems to work better than apple barrel as well. So far it has been better than any "craft paint" I have tried. 74 colors. $37 will buy every color.. :lol:

Just thought I'd share this with my tackle making buds. Mix 50/50 with water.
