Art paint set FAQs

What are the different types of paints for art?

There are four major types of paint for art - acrylic, watercolour, oil and gouache. These paints can be altered with special paint mediums, creating effects like a matte or gloss finish, a thicker impasto body or a thinner fluid feel, or effects like pearlescence, crackling or glitter.

What comes in an art set?

Art sets will all vary, but most will come with at least a good range of paint colours. Many will also come with some suitable paintbrushes for the paint type, and some even come with extra tools like a palette or painting knife. Larger sets may also have a paper pad or table easel!

When should you buy an art set?

Art sets make a fantastic gift for any artist, particularly those who are just getting started with a new type of paint. A set that contains paints, paintbrushes and suitable paper or canvas is particularly great because it contains everything an artist needs to start painting straight away. Art sets are also fun to buy for yourself if you want to try a new type of paint and don't want to shop around for a bunch of new art supplies.

What Else Can I Find At Spotlight?

You can find all sorts of paint types at Spotlight, including:

  • Acrylic art paints: The easiest paint to use, as it dries quickly and is flexible enough to use on most surfaces. These paints are the easiest to combine with a wide range of mediums.
  • Oil paints: Thick and creamy, oil paint dries slowly and can be altered using linseed oil or turpentine.
  • Watercolour paints: These paints are luminous, transparent and very fluid, and should be used only on special watercolour paper. Gouache paints are like a cross between acrylic and watercolour paints.
