Acrylic Colours feed

The most versatile painting medium, Acrylics lend themselves to both watercolour and oil painting techniques. Used straight from the tube they provide a water-based fast drying alternative to oils, and watered down provide a more opaque (and therefore correctable!) alternative to watercolours.

Additionally Acrylic paints will bind with a wide range of Acrylic mediums that provide various different effects, from simply slowing down the drying time, to making the paints iridescent.

Available in both Artist’s quality (Liquitex) and student quality ranges (System 3 & Galeria).
