I like to try a gamut of products- from kitchen items to personal care to art stuff.
If it's something we would normally want to try- I'll review it.
So when I had the opportunity to try some artsy stuff (Kasey LOVES arts and crafts) I jumped at the opportunity!
I had Kasey sit down at her table and try out this manga paper and acrylic paint!
Until receiving this product- I had never realized there was paper specifically for drawing manga and the like. I do admit that none of us in this house are that talented so we settled for trying it out with the paint by the same company (U.S. Art Supply).
I was a bit skeptical at how much Kasey would get to use these since they are such tiny tubes. I know they are intended for adults typically but I like letting Kasey use adult art mediums rather than JUST finger paint.
These are the colors she picked- she covered several sheets of the manga paper with her artwork (which I admit ended up like a brown blob because she adores mixing paint colors to find new colors which always leads to a brown blog). That little bit of paint on that plate went a long way!
It also adhered well to the manga paper- which is a bit shiny and slick in comparison to regular paper that we've used in the past. I liked that the paint didn't make a hole in the paper- it's good quality paper. Overall- she's going to get a lot of use and enjoyment out of these 2 products together! I'm impressed and will continue to purchase this brand of acrylic paint!
The oil paper is excellent with all oil based paints- it comes with 15 sheets of paper in each pad of paper (vs. the 24 in the manga pad).
and the paint here:
As always- I received this product in exchange for my honest review. My thoughts and opinions on this product are my own and not influenced by how I obtained the product.
