Ara (Acrylics Rietveld Academy) is an acrylic developed at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. The high pigmentation delivers pure colours posessing extraordinary tinting strength. These colours are made of 100% acrylic emulsion combined with lightfast pigments, formulated to give a smooth brushable colour with intensity and brilliance. The strong adhesion of an acrylic binder makes these colours suitable for many applications and surfaces.

Ara acrylics are produced in the paint factory of Old Holland Classic Colours. The paint is made according to Old Holland’s own recipe in order to ensure the highest quality possible. All pigments have a lightfastness on the Blue Wool Scale of at least 7 in full tone and 6 when the tint is cured with titanium white. The Blue Wool Scale is the internationally accepted measure of lightfastness and runs from 1 to 8.

A very good quality range of mid-priced acrylic, ideal for serious artists needing to cover large canvases.

Review by Alison
This paint is described as "possessing extraordinary tinting strength" and as having "strong adhesion". I disagree on both counts. Compared to other cobalts the hue is weak and insipid, and the tinting strength feeble. I was using it yesterday with the sgraffito technique and could only look on in horror as chunks of the paint came away from the canvas around my sgraffito marks, so it certainly doesn't have good adhesion. Overall very disappointing, I will definitely not be buying this brand again. Not recommended! (Posted on 23/11/2016)
