Acrylic paint formulation is one of the most complicated of colour technologies. It not only involves choosing the best raw materials and developing the best formulations, it requires absolute control throughout the colour making process and using tailor made mills and equipment to develop each colour to its full potential.

Winsor & Newton was the first company to publish the contents of its colours in 1892, believing in the importance of providing as much information as possible. Providing good information for artists remains as important today as it was in 1892. The label on our Artists' Acrylic tubes clearly shows what you need to know.
Composition & permanence information is extremely important for any artist who is committed to producing paintings of the highest quality. As for all of our ranges, we have created a detailed table for Artists' Acrylic that provides the chemical colour composition & permanence information for the entire range.
As with all of our artists' materials, Artists' Acrylics do not present any serious hazards to health as long as they are used with care and common sense. All of the colours are labelled according to current legislation in the market in which they are sold. Please ensure you read the product labels.
