Creators of Art Materials Since 1905
Acrylic paint is a relatively new medium in the pantheon of artistic media. Developed in the mid part of the 20th century as a house paint, acrylics were first used in the art realm by muralists. It covered large areas fairly quickly and had a much faster drying speed than oil based paints. Grumbacher® Academy® Acrylics follow that chain of artistic evolution.
More technologically advanced than the earliest versions of acrylic, Grumbacher colors consist of artist quality pigments uniformly dispersed in an aqueous acrylic emulsion. The binding vehicle consists of droplets of an acrylic resin suspended in water. As the water evaporates, the droplets of resin combine to form a crystal clear film. This film imparts an exceptional luminosity and vibrancy to the colors.
Academy acrylic colors provide the artist with a versatile option for painting and crafting. Thinned with water, the paint can be applied in delicate, translucent layers much like watercolor. Straight from the tube, or thickened with a medium, these colors can be applied to a canvas with the same techniques used for oil color. Academy acrylics can also be thinly applied to layers of paper for a decoupage effect. The possibilities are as limitless as the artist's imagination.
