I love they have the pigment name and I love that I can get them to stay workable for a long time without compromising the quality of the paint. Being from a very dry climate, workability of acrylics is a very big problem. I have much less of a problem with Traditions.

DecoArt Traditions paint is available in 58 classic artists colors.
I've just started using this paint because of a convention class and then again via an online class. I like the different things you can choose to do with it. I'm primarily an acrylic painter and started dabbling with oil and this seems to fit right in between and I'm glad I found that I can get the paint through Painters Paradise. I've placed 2 orders so far and they have been the best! The paint is nice an creamy and mixes easy. Love the blender/extender which lets me work with it like an oil paint.
I've used Traditions on and off since it came out. I do like the paint, but I'm not into mixing colors anymore. If I use oils, which I do quite often, I brush mix. I wish Traditions were a little more like oils.
