Happy New Year! Thank you for all your support in 2013. We really do appreciate it.
Have you seen the latest article History in the Making, written by Chris Christoforou and published in the Leisure Painter Magazine, December 2013? Well worth a read and will give you an insight into the history of ChromaColour.
We now have a small range of animation cell paint colours. We have taken pictures of hand painted cells and put these online. Originally we used to have hand painted colour swatches that were sold to animation studios when embarking on a large production. There were once over 1800 colours, not including custom made colours! To produce these swatches were timely and costly and are now no longer made now that digital animation is firmly in the driving seat. However for those still painting cells, a small range is available. We will add to this range over the coming weeks.
The basic essentials you need to get started with your animated drawings, just throw in a bit of creativity!

An excellent show this year. ChromaColour was well represented with Rachel working very hard giving 4 different Workshops each day. These were all oversubscribed and we had run extra ones. The Baubles and Napkins were particularly popular.
We were very honoured to have Jane Booth and (Lady) Penelope Timmis on stands next to us. Both very talented and different Artists – Jane with her beautiful dogs and Penny with her lovely Cockerels and Ducks. We all worked very well together.
We were also visited by Chris Christoforou, the “original” ChromaColour artist and Darren Green who kindly helped us on the Stand on Saturday.
Now we prepare for Christmas and all our Special Offers which are ideal as presents and the launch of our new Silk Paint range coming soon. Watch this space.
