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

Colours mix with ease and dry to a beautiful water resistant film that is flexible and non-tacky. Opus Essential Acrylics can be thinned with water or acrylic medium and dry with a semi-gloss/gloss finish.

Opus Essential Acrylic colours are excellent for use on interior or exterior non-oily surfaces. Use them indoors or outdoors for fine art applications, craft projects, and murals.

  • Naphthol Red
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Hansa Yellow Medium
  • Phthalo Green
  • Lamp Black
  • Titanium White

Note: A small number of colours in this line may occasionally have some clear separation; this is not unusual for paints with high pigment loads. Do not pour off this separation as it contains ingredients that are integral to the paint. Instead, remix into the paint.

QoR Watercolor: Introductory Set of 6SET6

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 2Ń5 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!

Iwata Eclipse HP-BCS Airbrush SetHP-BCS

IwataÕs Eclipse series airbrushes are their most versatile and reliable airbrushes. This bottle feed set features the Eclipse HP-BCS airbrush with a specially designed all metal body. It is a multi-purpose airbrush that is suitable for high detail and high paint flow applications. It offers a controlled spray for applying moderate to large amounts of paint.

The Eclipse HP-BCS is a double action, bottom feed airbrush with a 0.5 mm needle and nozzle combination. You can achieve fine to wide lines with this airbrush and the thickness can be controlled by the distance of airbrush from the surface and by adjusting the amount of paint flow using the double action lever. An extremely narrow line can also be achieved by removing the needle cap. Its cutaway handle enables access to the needle-chucking nut. Loosening this nut increases paint flow and allows you to clean out any paint clogs.

In addition to the Eclipse series airbrush this set includes a userÕs guide, one acrylic airbrush colour (1 oz), airbrush cleaner (1 oz), a detachable airbrush hose, small wrench, siphon bottle, and a five year warranty.
