just read some reviews on liquitex on amazon and ebay.....
"Half-filled tubes are bad enough. Horrible paint that doesn't spread well. This is really children's paint. Don't waste your money."
"Liquitex's Basic paint. You are paying more for smaller amounts of cheaper quality paint. Buyer beware."
"Very disappointing. I would have returned them but my husband, after waiting for these paints to arrive so he could start to use them, got angry and threw two of them away immediately. He will continue to use the rest as well as he can."
(it doesn't look good does it) but apparently theres a huge diff between the basic and pro versions
