Discover Daler-Rowney Brushes, Inks, and Georgian Oils

Touching the Lives of Artists Through Every Step of Their Journey


Having been part of the art supply business for over 225 years, Daler-Rowney has been with artists every step of the way making quality colors and materials since 1783. Started by brothers Richard and Thomas Rowney in London, Daler-Rowney has always been known for it's expertise in the field of color making and using the knowledge gained over two centuries, paired with new materials and technology, they have continually impressed artists with their high quality art materials.

Although Daler-Rowney produces an incredible range of top quality art supplies, none shine like their brushes, inks and oil paints.

So why use any of these products? Here's exactly why!

F.W. Acrylic & Pearlescent Inks


Daler-Rowney F.W. Acrylic inks are acrylic pigmented water-resistant ink in an impressive range of 38 colors all rated at a 3 or 4 rating for permanence. With such a high degree of lightfastness over such a range of fully intermixable colors, F.W. Acrylic Inks are ideal for use by artists in the production of pictures for permanent display. They are also perfect for use with airbrushes and technical drawing pens. 

 F.W. Pearlescent Inks have a unique range of 22 water based acrylic colors producing a shimmering pearl effect. They are best used when applied with dipper pens or brushes and are water soluble when wet but dry to a water resistant film and are incredibly lightfast.

Georgian Oil Colors

With a smooth texture, exceptional performance and expansive range of 54 brilliant colors, Georgian Oil Colors prove to be the most vibrant and consistent. The precise measurements used to create individual colors requires the perfect balance of oil content and high quality pigment which is finely ground to release the full intensity of color and to ensure complete dispersion. 

Daler-Rowney Robert Simmons Brushes


White Sable Watercolor Brushes- Pioneered and developed exclusively by Robert Simmons, White Sable has proved to be revolutionary in the artist brush field. White Sable Brushes are all made with a synthetic fiber called "White Sable hair".

Signet Brushes- Resilient but sturdily built with seamless nickel ferrules firmly attached to tan lacquered hardwood handles, Signet Brushes have a true "interlocked" construction and contain the finest quality Chungking hog bristle to perform brilliantly.

Titanium BrushesTitanium brushes are extremely durable and designed for high performance use with oil and all types of acrylics, especially heavy bodied acrylics.
