GOLDEN Introductory Professional Acrylics Set of 6SET/6

Known for their exceptionally smooth and buttery consistency, these professional paints offer pure pigments in a 100% acrylic emulsion.

GOLDEN’s Heavy Body Paint provides excellent permanency and lightfastness, and is also free of fillers, extenders, opacifiers, toners, and dyes.

Each colour’s formula reflects the quality of the pigment: colours with a higher pigment load will dry to a more opaque, matte finish, whereas colours that are more reactive and require a lighter pigment load will tend to dry with a glossier, more transparent finish. The gloss of each colour will vary, as GOLDEN Heavy Body colours contain no matting agents.

94 of the 101 colours within the line are considered excellent in lightfastness (the ability to withstand color change due to exposure to light). The remaining 7, the two Naphthols, Hansa Yellow Light, Permanent Green Light, Dioxazine Purple, Green Gold, and Primary Yellow, are rated very good for lightfastness.

The Cadmium colours are especially sensitive to the combination of light and moisture, so outdoor use of these colours should be avoided.

Set contains: 6 × 22 ml: Naphthol Red Light, Hansa Yellow Medium, Ultramarine Blue, Permanent Green Light, Mars Black, Titanium White

QoR Watercolor: Introductory Set of 12SET/12

A modern twist on a traditional medium, QoR Watercolours give you more of what artists want: more colour, more intensity, more strength and more versatility.

Using an exciting new binder called Aquazol, QoR Watercolours pack 2ć5 times more pigment punch into each tube than watercolours that use traditional Gum Arabic binder. Aquazol is crystal clear, allowing the brilliance and luminosity of the pigments to show to their highest potential, and reducing the colour-shift often encountered as watercolours dry.

QoRÕs binder offers greater adherence for pigments, too, so no matter how thick or thin you paint, theyÕll stay in place on your page without cracking or crumbling, a feature offered only through the use of this revolutionary binder.

Aquazol also contains a surfactant that gives QoR a highly dispersant quality, encouraging colours to flow beautifully, and maintain their liveliness on paper. All 83 luscious, flowing colours are also completely intermixable with traditional watercolours.

Leap into the future of watercolours with GOLDENÕs stunning new paints, and discover for yourself why they were given a name that stands for Quality of Results.

QoR Mediums and Grounds allow you to bring texture and life to your watercolours, on both traditional watercolour papers, and alternative surfaces like canvas, art board, and more! Increase the absorbency of your favourite surface with QoR Mediums and Grounds, and unleash the possibilities of watercolours!
