Acrylic Artist Color contains one of the widest ranges of pure pigments available for fine arts, in a dispersion of 100% acrylic resin. The colors offer the highest grade of permanence and lightfastness. Following traditional methods, most of the colors in the range have been formulated with only one pigment, resulting in maximum purity and color strength and giving the artist complete control over his material in mixtures and compositions. Pigments are identified on the label and in the colorchart.
If the nature of a color requires a formulation of more than one pigment, this is clearly indicated. (Please also see “ Chemical Composition ” and “ Colorindex ”)
The range of colors consists of cadmiums and cobalts, organic pigments, natural earth colors and synthetic iron oxides, opaque or transparent, depending on their nature; each formula has been developed individually to bring forth the most specific qualities of each pigment. Included in the range are two Titanium Whites, Rutile for its whiteness and opacity, and Anatase for its quality in mixtures and achieving pastel tones.
