Yet another question on PAX paint. Did i buy the right stuff?

So I bought Pros-aide (2 oz) and because im paranoid, an extra thing of Ben Nye prosthetic adheisve (4 oz), but that's not my problem....
I heard you're supposed to use the Liquitex brand, so this is what I went with this

Did I choose the right thing?
Thanks so much for the help!

  • Duela Dent
  • Dryad Soraka (LoL)
I have currently finished:
  • M'gann (young justice)
  • Ezio Auditore
  • Daenerys (GoT)
  • Party King Thranduil
Conventions I've been to/going to:
  • AAC
  • Anime Boston
  • Granite State Comic Con
  • Boston Comic Con

You and use a variety of paint brands....as long as you have gotten acrylic paint..which you have.

As a makeup artist....and one who buys ProsAide in giant amounts...I still most often get PAX pre-mixed.

So far I've used two different brands of paint (neither of them Liquitex) and it's been fine. I bought the cheap stuff from Walmart (what is it, Folk Art?) and I've never had a problem with it. Like belligerent said, as long as it's acrylic.
