Plaid Apple Barrel paint is my favorite! It's very budget friendly and comes in a ton of vibrant colors. I am using this selection from Amazon that has a bit of every color.


I love this assortment of colors because it has all the primary colors, plus, it has a light tone and a darker tone of each shade. This makes painting and blending a snap using this pack of 18 fabulous 2 oz. Apple Barrel paints.
