Artist Quality Paints

Jo Sonja's Artist Quality Acrylic Paints are renowned for their exceptional quality and versatility, making them a favourite among both professional artists and hobbyists. These paints are specially formulated to provide a matte, velvety finish reminiscent of traditional gouache, but with the durable qualities of modern acrylics. Jo Sonja's paints are known for their superb handling and brushing characteristics, ensuring ease of application and consistency.

Unlike traditional gouache, Jo Sonja's Artist Colours are water-resistant and highly resilient, preventing chipping and cracking once cured. This feature makes them an ideal choice for projects requiring longevity and durability. The paints are crafted from only the finest quality pure pigments, ensuring that the colours remain vibrant and true for generations, without fading or altering.

The range includes a diverse palette of 81 standard colours and 6 metallic shades, catering to a wide spectrum of artistic needs. The versatility of Jo Sonja's paints extends to their suitability for various surfaces, including paper, papier-mâché, card, canvas, wood, fabric, tin, terracotta, glass, and tile. This adaptability makes them perfect for a broad range of artistic and craft applications.

In terms of practical application, Jo Sonja's Matte Flow Acrylics offer quick drying times, which can be accelerated with a hair dryer. The unique formulation allows the colours to dry through each other, enabling artists to work in layers without disturbing the underlying paint. This feature is particularly useful for complex, multi-layered projects. The paints dry slightly darker than their wet appearance, which is approximately one value difference, but regain brightness with the application of a varnish.

With a coverage rate of approximately 1ml per 157 sq cm (1 oz per 5 sq ft), these paints are not only effective but also economical for large scale projects. Clean-up is straightforward, requiring only soap and water, which underscores the user-friendly nature of the product.

Jo Sonja's Artist Quality Acrylic Paints are designed for artists who demand high performance and reliability from their painting mediums. Whether you are a seasoned professional or a passionate enthusiast, these paints offer the quality and flexibility needed to express creativity without compromise.
