Best white for non chalkiness?

    Hey all, what's the best brand in acrylics for a white that doesn't get that chalky kind of texture when mixed with other colors?

    I wasn't aware white paint ever caused a chalky texture, at least it's never happened to me in either acrylics or oils.

    Now I am aware that adding too much white will cause a color to be chalky (i.e., washed-out). The solution there is to not use so much white paint, or use zinc white instead of titanium white.

    I rarely use white for lightening colours - I try to find an alternative option. I only ever use pure white as an absolute highlight for white clothing, etc.(y)

    Same here as above, I never use pure white to add highlights, Titanium White is used purely for extreme glint highlights. For colour lightening I try to use an off-white that has a hint of the base colour in it
