while this is mostly about facts, there are a lot of opinions in this tutorial (namely my distrust on several brands marketing strategies, and my opinion that’s better to start with cheap student quality stuff. LOTS of people disagree on that point) as well that you should take as what they are: personal opinions.

here is slightly more readable than on tumblr

this is the result of several years of research on creating a cheap but high quality palette that would help me.

other things to be aware of: pigments are generally more resistant in oil and acrylics than they are in watercolor. but there are a couple of pigments that work well in watercolor but really badly in oil.

Blue and Yellow don’t make green by Michael Wilcox

a side note, at least for acrylic in my experience, sometimes there are colors in acrylic lines like manganese? i think or say some kind of aqua…special fun kind of color. Get familiar with the pigment codes, and check these blended colors and just buy the base tubes. You can mix the fun color yourself and makes tons of variation. Some blues especially? are basically pthalo blue and pth. green and white in different ratios….so it would be a waste obvi to buy an aqua and prussian or manganese or brilliant blue with acrylic lines cause you can make all or those and more yourself. Really just buy blends if youre using that exact color for large fills or sth….some of these base colors have different shades you’d do well to be aware of too and select those based on what colors you intend to mix with.

OP mentions only buying the primaries in artist grade, but I’d recc getting the secondaries too…diox purple, some kind of pigment orange, pthalo green….it’s very difficult to mix these colors purely with primaries and they often become muddy. It’s best when you get picky to just buy the actual single pigment secondaries for vibrancy’s sake…

OH ACTUAL LEGIT SAFETY NOTE???

many pigments are actually HEAVY METALS or METAL OXIDES. Typically this will reflect in higher price, but Chromium Oxide green or Cadmium red or Cobalt blue and others are TOXIC. Don’t put them on your skin, wash after using them, and you really ought no eat while painting with them ahaha…It’s not like insta-cancer or illness if you’re in contact/using these materials, but don’t deliberately get this stuff on you!
