Made with 100% pure acrylic emulsion and pigment, it is the only truly archival paint in its class. There is good to excellent lightfastness and chroma with all the colours, the best for it’s level. It has excellent adhesion and will not chip, crack or separate in the jar. The colours and pigments are not altered with fillers.
The full palette of 69 vibrant colours provides instructors and students with the necessary tools for colour theory and mixing. Specialty colours such as iridescents and fluorescents have been included to create dynamic visual and creative effects.
Instructions: Paint may be applied with a brush or palette knife in thin layers, washes or heavy impasto to hold peaks, textures and stroke marks. It may be used alla prima out of the container or mixed with mediums to control viscosity and luster. To extend colours and maintain optimum colour chroma, use Rheotech Mediums. Rheotech colours can be thinned with water at up to a 1:1 ratio to maintain a stable paint film. Brushes and painting tools should be kept wet during use and cleaned with warm water and soap immediately afterwards. Keep caps and lids on containers once paint has been dispensed.
