Stevenson Acrylic Paint for Sale

I have some Stevenson Acrylic Paints for sale.

*All are 1.125L wide mouth jars.

All Stevenson Acrylic Paints are rated as “Professional Artist Quality” and are manufactured with 100% acrylic emulsion. The pigments used in their manufacture are composed of traditional inorganic and modern organic pigments, all possessing a high degree of lightfastness. Only high-strength, permanent pigments are used in their formulation.

They are quick-drying, flexible, non-cracking and compatible with most other brands of acrylic paint. These heavy-bodied paints can be thinned with acrylic mediums or water, to produce watercolour or smooth, colour-field effects. When applied straight from the tube or jar, brush strokes are easily retained and strong, sharp, impasto effects achieved.
