Hi all, just need some pointers on brands of acrylic paint to consider purchasing for painting my sculpey creations. I have heard that Vallejo Model Colour Paint is real good, any other recomends for good quality and fair price?

I usually go with Liquitex Basics, though I'm not sure what their price is like compared to the brands you mentioned.

Thank you for the tips guys.

I get all my paint from Dick Blick where big 8.5oz tubes (that's a LOT of paint) go for around $5.00 each. They have sets as well in various sized paint tubes. http://www.dickblick.com/products/liquitex-basics-sets/
I don't know if Blick ships outside of the US though, but it looks to go pretty cheap on ebay as well.

Hey all. I just wanted to ask, how can i achieve (and what do i use to get) a super matte finish on a super sculpey sculpture, painted with FW crylic artists inks? The Inks come out too shiny and i want to make it completely matte (like cardboard matte).
