To answer your question: NO! If you wanted to go from the financial point of view, I used to get $350 for a bird/duck and using borax, the cost of preservative was less than a dime. Every time I hear a story about how changing to a product made the moon shine brighter, I get out my boots. The outcome is based on the artist, not the brand of paints being used. Remember Dumbo who couldn't fly without a feather in his trunk? Same analogy here. Changing product isn't nearly as successful and changing your habits.
