Acrylic Paint

Acrylic Paint

Acrylic paints are essentially plastic, being pigments contained within a polymer emulsion - they are markedly different from oil paints in that they are very fast-drying, and are water-soluble when mixing, for gouache or watercolour effects, but water resistant when dry. Thin them for a watercolour wash effect or apply them thickly with texture to resemble oils. They are an incredibly versatile and relatively cheap medium, especially suited to quick working.

Our selection of acrylic paint covers three categories - beginner, consisting of the entry-level or student-grade paint such as the Daler Rowney System 3 Acrylic Starter Set through the intermediate hobbyist or graduate level of the Sennelier Abstract Acrylics - both in convenient sets of 5 or individually in 120ml and 500ml options - and the finer, professional grade of the Winsor & Newton Galeria Acrylics.
