If you're looking for some decent quality acrylic paint at a a bargain price, you might stop by your local dollar store…

Acryology paints

A company called RichArt produces a line of acrylic paints in 2-ounce and 4-ounce bottles, apparently aimed at the child crafts market. The range includes eighteen primary colors, as well as additional fluorescent colors.

The primary colors are:

  • black
  • cobalt blue
  • deep blue
  • deep brown
  • deep green
  • deep yellow
  • light green
  • magenta
  • medium green
  • orange
  • pithalo blue
  • red oxide
  • scarlet
  • vermillion
  • violet
  • white
  • yellow
  • yellow oxide

These paints can now be found at Dollar Tree, but only in the 4-ounnce bottles, and only in certain colors. The company website lists five colors: white, light green, deep/dark green, violet, and scarlet. (But I know they also have black, because I've bought some.)

Quality seems good, and you can't beat the price. Older bottles have screw-type caps, but the new ones have flip-top caps for easy dispensing.
