‘It may be a surprise to know that you can sometimes buy artist’s paints from supermarkets such as Lidl and Aldi.
I was very impressed by the paint from Lidl – the consistency is as good as more expensive brands. They also do good metallic paints.
Another good outlet for paint is Home Bargains. There you have to be lucky with the choice of extra colours eg metallics.
Other shops such as The Works often sell paint and accessories.
You really don’t have to spend a fortune. And when you find one that’s both cheap and good quality – make sure you stock up!’
