Welcome Back

Ohh how I’ve missed my paints,even the smell and feel of them makes me want to create. After reading Chris Cozen & Julie Prichard’s book, part of this month’s stash dive, I decided to give some of the techniques a try. Here is the result of gel and tissue paper, don’t you just love the texture it creates.

Mixed media art. 'You Inspire me.'

Mixed media art. ‘You Inspire me.’

I adore textures and making things look old, the paint I used was Winsor & Newton Galeria and the dark chocolate colour is Vandyke Brown when I added the water to get it to run down the colour broke up a bit and left the most wonderful gritty look. The finished result is a bit shiny for me so I’ll have another go with matt medium and compare the difference. The Stamp is one of Glenda Waterworth set.

Join me later in the week to read my review of Acrylic Solutions.


Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Welcome Back

In today’s post I will be reviewing;

W&N Galeria Acrylic Paint

W&N Galeria Acrylic Paint

Product Details

  • Manufacturer/Brand; Winsor & Newton/ Galeria
  • Item number 2190517
  • RRP at time of writing: £33

This review is mainly about the paint itself, rather than specifically this set.

Reason For Buying

I wanted to try these paints as an affordable way to build a colour pallet. I hoped they would be fluid enough for One stroke Painting as I want to use them with Sheena Paint Fusion stamps. Wanted to experiment with techniques to see what can be achieved with acrylic paint.



  • Quality paint for the price
  • Good selection of colours available, including metallic’s (available individually, separately from this set)
  • Good selection of mediums to mix with the paint to alter how the paint looks or performs
  • Ideal for newbies to acrylic paint
  • Will work for one stroke painting
  • Super smooth and a joy to paint with


Still a bit of a smell but way less than System 3 by Daler Rowney!!!

Build Quality

Excellent. Paint is superb and the metal tubes for the 60 mls make them robust for storage

Value for Money

Excellent! Quality paint for the price point.

Would I buy it Again?

Yes! I’ll be collecting a good selection of these.

Summing up

If you want a quality paint but are on a tight budget these are an excellent way to go. There is a superb range of colours available at good prices, the mediums are a good price too and have a huge range of options!

If you want to upgrade from ‘craft’ paint these have the option of all the mediums to give you a lot of scope for altering the appearance and performance of the paint. Really good value for money, go for them if you can.
