Chromacolour Artist Colours - Liden 50ml Pot
We hesitate to call our paints acrylics, whilst technically they are, they are unlike any other acrylic paints on the market. The reason that we are hestitant to label our paints as acrylic is due to their origins. Having originated from animation cel paint, back in the days when cartoon animated films were still painstakingly hand painted, Chromacolour artist paints maintain the same qualities.
, lightfast and will not fade. No matter how thickly they are applied, they remain flexible when dry and will not crack or yellow. The paints can be used on virtually any surface without priming because the underwash itself acts as a sealer. Supplied in both pots or tubes, the only difference is that the paint in the tubes is of a gel consistency. Your choice will depend on your painting style and personal preference.
ChromaColour Artist Paints are so pigment rich that they can be diluted seven times more than traditional watercolours and still retain their tint value. Our Artist Paints dry to the same colour as wet, so painting is more predictable. They also dry to a totally waterproof matt finish so overpainting does not produce muddy results.
Watercolourists, illustrators and airbrush artists may well prefer the more liquid paint in the pots because it is easy to dilute. Painters in the gouache style will find the paint straight from the pot is ideal for applying broad areas of opaque colour. Painters in the acrylic, oil and impasto styles may prefer the thicker tube paint. Paint straight from the tube can also be used like an acrylic, making it ideal for mixed-media artists.
When thickened with gel, the tube paint takes on the bulk and texture of oil paints and can even be applied in slabs of heavy impasto.
