I’ve been meaning to write about this for awhile now. One day I bought some black acrylic paint to save $. It was a well known online brand but it wasn’t the usual brand I buy which is Utrecht.

My lesson. Never do that!

I like the paint by Utrecht and this is why. Utrecht paints are opaque! They cover superbly. They are smooth with brilliant color.

This image shows one coat of the cheaper black paint on the left and Utrecht paint on the right.

You can see the difference! The one on the left is sheer, the one on the right is not.

I use a lot of black paint in my work with the outlining and I need it to be opaque.

Thank you Utrecht. I’m sticking with you. I’ll never buy that other brand again.
