Art can be an expensive hobby/profession. It is easy to get carried away and end up with a horrifying receipt in your hand at the till. So, I am going to test art materials you can buy if you are on a budget – Starting with the Poundland metallic acrylic paint review.
Earlier this year my disposable income was less than normal BUT that wasn’t going to stop me from painting – I needed to paint and where there’s a will there’s a way! – I just had to find it.
Poundland Metallic Acrylic Paint Review
I normally work with acrylics when I am painting and they have some great metallic acrylic paints in most Poundland stores I have been in. The colour range is limited but it was perfect for what I wanted to do; which was paint the poppies in the garden.
I was sceptical about the results I would get from a cheaper paint but I was pleasantly surprised and now grab some whenever I am in store because I love working with them so much.
I have only found 5 colours: Red, gold, green, bronze and purple in the metallic range (75ml), so if there are more out there then please let me know! They would be great for a budget friendly Christmas craft project, too.
Below are some paint samples of each colour and a picture of one of the paintings I produced with them:
I haven’t tried any of the other Poundland paints yet but I definitely will in the future as they also stock regular acrylics in 120mls.
Other metallic paints I love using are the BEROL Cromar Metallic Paints, which are pricier but brilliant and I will do a separate post on those soon.
Have you used the Poundland paints? If so, what are your thoughts?
