Only the purest pigments and the highest grades are used in Artists' Acrylics, formulated individually to ensure the cleanest, most brilliant colours. Winsor & Newton have developed a new unique binder that is translucent when wet and dries clear. It is this that ensures there is virtually no shift in colour at all and colours remain as brilliant when dry as they are when wet.
Artists' Acrylic offers the smooth, thick, short, buttery consistency preferred by most acrylic artists, with no stringiness. This juicy and painterly colour enables paints to be blended more easily and mixed with mediums or even water for water colour techniques. Whilst maintaining individual pigment characteristics these paints have achieved a uniform buttery consistency across the range, making it easier for the artist to handle during painting. These colours retain brushstrokes and the profile of the paint for excellent impasto effects. They also dilute gradually as water or medium is added, giving artists the maximum control over their paint.
