Student grade paints will suffice but will not mix to some chosen colors. 120ml or larger containers recommended. You will also use more paint to get what you want. Please pigment -match the colors listed. Manufacturers do not use the same color name. They do however use the international registered pigment numbers to find a comparable paint color.
