About This Product
In our years of studio tests, few products have surprised us as much as Holbein Heavy Body Artist Acrylic. We are admittedly partial to oil colors—acrylics are too often sticky and dull. These were the first acrylics we’d ever tried that gave us the feeling of pure painting, without the medium getting in our way.
Naturally, we had to stock all 113 colors. This buttery smooth, maximally pigmented acrylic offers sharper strokes and deeper color than other artist-grade acrylics. Despite its velvety texture, it also retained our brushstrokes more than the competition, making the final product look like high-quality oil paint.
This CMYK mixing set contains five full-sized tubes of Holbein acrylic in the five most important colors in contemporary art and design: cyan, magenta, yellow, black, and white. These colors offer the greatest access to secondary and tertiary mixed colors of any set of primaries, and they have become the industry standard in digital color mixing. Analog artists may be more familiar with Red/Yellow/Blue mixing, but just try CMYK and you'll find that bright orange and violet are much easier to mix and muddy colors are less of a problem.
We also stock Holbein Heavy Body Artist Acrylic in single tubes.
