After extensive research and development, we are proud to present the brightest ever range of Artists' Acrylic. By combining our world-beating colour making experience with the latest developments in resin technology we have taken 'brilliance' to a new level. And that's not all. Not only are our colours brilliant when wet but they remain as bright when dry - so what you see is what you get. Our new acrylic range represents a significant breakthrough in achieving colour brilliance and much, much more...
Artists' Acrylics are unrivalled in their brilliance and depth of colour bringing exceptional richness and intensity to your paintings. The brilliance of Artists' Acrylics can be seen in the clarity and purity of their colour which is evident when the colour is applied straight from the tube as well as in the thinnest of films.
Until now acrylic paints have darkened in tone as they dry, making colour matching difficult from wet palette to dry canvas. With our new range, acrylic painters no longer have to cope with colour shift. Our colours remain as brilliant and intense when dry as they do when wet.
The Artists' Acrylic range consists of 80 colours spread across the widest palette, using single pigments wherever possible to provide the brightest and strongest colours. The range also includes 17 exciting new colours, further increasing the number of unique pigments available to acrylic painters.
We've formulated Artists' Acrylic to have a longer working time on the palette without compromising the convenient drying time of acrylics. The working time is now 20% more than our previous range of Finity Artists' Acrylics and in tests with artists, we've found that this is just the right amount of time for working with all acrylic painting techniques.
Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylic includes a good mix of transparent and opaque colours offering good levels of opacity and covering power. Transparent colours give clean colour mixing while opaque colours offer the greatest covering power - the ability to cover previous layers or how far it spreads on the canvas. Artists' Acrylic will cover surfaces much quicker than other acrylics, usually with only one coat.
Artists' Acrylic offers the smooth, thick, short, buttery consistency preferred by most acrylic artists, with no stringiness. Colours will retain brush strokes and palette knife marks for excellent impasto effects and flow out smoothly with soft brushes if you prefer a smooth surface. They also dilute gradually as water or medium is added, giving artists the maximum control over their paint.
