How to choose the acrylic paint based on Quality 

You can buy acrylics in two grades: artists' quality and students' quality. Artists' quality paints (sometimes referred to as "professional") come in a wide range of colors, have a high concentration of finely ground pigment, and boast high permanence ratings. Students' colors are cheaper but the trade off is a smaller selection, lower pigment levels and the possible inclusion of fillers which may weaken the color strength. The difference between the two isn't just how they're made - often it's noticeable that artists' colors are more vibrant and have a smoother consistency that makes them easier to blend and layer.


If you're a beginner and on a budget, it's fine to start off with students' quality paint, but I'd recommend graduating to artists' colors once you start producing artwork that you care about preserving (especially if you aim to sell your work). Another option is to take the middle road by getting students' paints for the earth colors (which are almost just as good) but forking out more for the pure intense colors. Some artists also save money by using students' colors for underpainting and using professional quality paint on top.
