The Pactra paint bottles that were sold in the sixties were quite a bit nicer in shape than the more common Testor's paint bottles, and of course light years nicer than the little cans in which the Humbol paint was sold.

These Pactra paints were sold either individually or packaged in sets. Here's a good picture of the Crazy Cool Colors Weird-Oh Paint Set that I lifted from Ebay:



Here are a few pictures of the Weird-Oh Paint Set from my own collection:







The set was one of my higher priorities for a number of years because the graphics are so wild cool!
