I have tried ELC's which stained - Tesco's has been fine, but I was looking for larger quantities for DD's pre-school...any ideas?

Baker Ross do mega pint bottles of ready mixed paint - much prefer it to ELC, better colours, cheaper and more of it.

cheapest would be to buy powder paint, when you mix it up put a squirt of washing up liquid in - makes it last better.

not sure about washable tho' tbh I try not to spill/waste much and I am very anal about pinnys

They look brilliant, KatyMac - I might try them next time.

Economy of Brighton?

Or ELC using a discount card?

I use them a lot - mainly because they are local

Anyone ever tried Grosvenor House Papers? They have a fantastic range of ready mixed and powder paint and prices seem keen - though they don't include VAT...
