PAINTS

OIL PAINTS

These are one of the finest ranges of oil paints in the world, names after the Flemish painter, Anthony Van Dyke (1599–1642).

They are the ultimate choice for professional artists due to their high quality, but with their average to low price points, making them great value.

Optimal colour strength is due to a very high concentration and quality of pigments (even for colbalt and cadmium colours) and some very fine grinding.

The precise selection of pigments to the paint results in them having a good lustre and richness of colours.

 

Most of the colours have the highest possible of light fatness (resistance to light). The degree of light fastness can be measured as follows: -

a)       LLL = guarantee of lightfast colour (100 years) under museum conditions.

b)      LL = medium lightfast colour (25 – 99 years) under museum conditions.

 

Very pure colours and greatest durability of the paint coat.

They can be mixed with each other extremely well.

There is a wide choice of 81 colours to select from with a balanced distribution over the different colour groups and a good mixture from opaque to translucent colours.

a)       Opaque (O)

b)      Semi Translucent (S)

c)       Translucent (T)

 

ACRYLIC PAINTS

An economical priced paint, suitable for painters of all abilities from professional to students.

Made from acrylic polymer emulsion which allows for excellent adhesion to many surfaces such as, canvas, paper, cardboard, plywood, hardboard, clay and fabrics.

Depending on how much a paint is diluted with water or modified with acrylic gels, media or paste, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolour or an oil painting.

The colour tones are extremely stable over time

Acrylic paint is fast drying.

They can be mixed with each other extremely well.

Very pure colours with exceptional colour brilliance.

 

Most of the colours have the highest possible of light fatness (resistance to light). The degree of light fastness can be measured as follows: -

a)       LLL = guarantee of lightfast colour (100 years) under museum conditions.

b)      LL = medium lightfast colour (25 – 99 years) under museum conditions.

 

These acrylics are divided into 3 groups for their opacity.

a)       Opaque (O)

b)      Semi Translucent (S)

c)       Translucent (T)

 

WATERCOLOUR PAINTS

Available in both tube (15ml/0.51 fl oz) and pan (4ml/0.135 fl oz) format.

Pans are favoured by the student as it is easier to control the colours strength. Tubes are preferred by the professional who often require stronger colour washes or for higher volume use.

This paint uses water as its base and can be mixed with acrylic, gouache, ink and others.

There is perfect transparency and brilliance of colours as the pigments are laid down in a pure form with few fillers to obscure the pigment colours.

Excellent solubility, adhesion and very good light fastness.
