Genesis : Heat Set Oil Paints
Not Oil or Acrylic
Genesis® Artist Colours are a new paint chemistry, called "Heat Set Artist Oils." Genesis is an artist quality fine-art paint that is ready to apply without repeated pre-mixing and will not dry until you are ready; then it dries very quickly.
Genesis® Artist Colours offer fine control in mixing, blending and application, and can be worked in many states without the addition of mediums. They are very similar to oil paints in feel, opacity and translucence. We encourage you to experiment with your style to achieve the desired effect.
Genesis® Artist Colours stay wet until heated, making them more convenient than oils or acrylics. The paint will not dry when left in the open on a non-porous surface. It is important to use a glass or other non-porous surface such as china, polished marble or porcelain for your palette.
Other paints have very different chemistries from Genesis® Artist Colours. Do not mix Genesis® Artist Colours with other oils or acrylics because the results are unpredictable.
Since Genesis® Artist Colours do not air dry, you do not have to clean your brushes even if you will not get back to painting for days, weeks or even months. When cleaning brushes for quick colour changes, simply wipe off excess paint, swirl in rubbing alcohol, wipe and repeat. The alcohol quickly cleans and evaporates out of the cleaned brush. You may also clean brushes by using warm water and soap. Dry your brushes thoroughly after cleaning.
While Genesis® Artist Colours can be thinned or cleaned with solvents commonly used with oil paints such as paint thinner, turpenoid and mineral spirits, these solvents are not necessary. Most artists prefer rubbing alcohol or non-toxic Genesis Thinning Medium. Genesis® Art Colours are not water soluble.
Genesis Paint is the prefered choice amongst reborners. To Reborn is the art of re-creating life like baby dolls that are painted to look exactly like the real thing down to the last hair and blemish.
Genesis® Artist Colours are certified non-toxic and conform to ASTM D-4236. They are certified in a program of toxicological evaluation by a medical expert to contain no material in sufficient quantities to be toxic or injurious to humans or to cause acute or chronic health problems.
