Prek/art teachers: best washable paint? craft supply source?

I used to run an arts n crafts group for kids and after some trial and error I found a brand of paint that I liked better than Crayola and was also significantly cheaper. I liked that it was opaque and came out good on cardboard and wood projects, and still washed out quite well from clothes.

It's been a while and I can't remember what brand it was, and now I'm going back to the kiddie crafts business and need to start ordering... do you have a favorite brand that is washable and opaque? I remember buying a box of about 12 basic colors in 32 oz bottles. I'm expecting a smaller group this year so 16 oz is probably enough too, and I'm ok with ordering individual bottles if needed but also racking my brain to try to remember which pack I liked... Searching my order history on email isn't going to help because I also had some brands I didn't like, so I don't know which one was which. I do see that at one time I bought School Smart, and another time I bought Color Splash, and a different time Crayola. Don't remember which was best.

Would also love any other recommendations of where to order arts n crafts supplies and if there are any to avoid?
