There is a reason craft paints are cheaper than model paints. The pigments are not as finely ground, and color matching is often inconsistent between batches. They often dilute poorly as well. I use craft paints for backgrounds, landscape and base layers and places where it doesn't show as much. Models and figures always get the good stuff on my layout.
