    the only difference I have heard is that the scrapbook paints are formulated with less water (or replaced with a different thinner) so that they are not as likely to "warp" paper.
    However, regular acrylic paints are fine for most uses in scrapbooking. Several of the demos I have seen used regular craft paints on chipboard, metal, accents, etc.

    I would assume nothing. The couple that I have looked at are the same. It is the packaging that you are paying for.

    I've got some acrylics from Matisse Dervian. I won them from their Spot Us uh contest I guess you'd call it. As far as I can tell it's safe for sb. I've used it on chipboard and other items but not direct paper unless it was cardstock or something.

    Apple Barrel would probalby be just as good I think walmart sells that real cheep if you have one that still has crafts. Mine looks like it's getting rid of cross-stitch and I can't remember seeing the paint unless I just didn't go down that isle.

    I have done a lot of craft painting and one thing I would not recommend is the Apple Barrel. Like someone said, it seems to have a lot more water and even on wood or other things, the coverage is no where as good as the other craft paints. Think my favorites would be Delta Ceramcoat or Folkart paints.

    I agree Lynn. I don't like Apple Barrel either- really poor coverage. I have a ton of Delta Ceramcoat and Americana (I also paint wood and am a wood worker). I tried my Delta's out today and they work just fine .
