Hi friends! Over the past week I have had the chance to try out a new type of paint that is a cross-breed between oils and acrylics. It’s called Aqyla and it is from the Japanese company Kusakabe. A viewer asked me to review the paints and the company kindly sent me a sample. This is not a sponsored post, none of my reviews are sponsored but I like people to know if I received a product for free so they can make informed decisions. Rest assured, you will always get a truthful review from me.
Watch the video to see how I liked the paint and learn the pros and cons of this medium.

Update: The Aqyla mixed with acrylics dried just fine:) It did take a couple of hours though.
- Affordable, the 18 colors set I used was $46
- Open stock available in 72 colors and effects mediums
- Compatible with oils, acrylics and watercolors
- Easier to blend than traditional acrylics but dries faster than oils
- High pigment load, no extenders
- Lightfast and uses tried and true pigments I recognize from other artist grade paints
- You need to mail order it
I hope you found this review helpful. I base what I review on viewer requests so if you would like a product reviewed just let me know in the comments below and I will try to accommodate it (if I haven’t reviewed it already!) Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
