Video Series: Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylic

Still considered to be the new painting medium, Acrylic Paint was first produced in the early Sixties. The finest of the Winsor & Newton acrylic range, Professional Acrylic is available in 74 colours, including 62 single pigment varieties, to provide the best colour mixing opportunities.

Unlike most acrylic paints, which darken in tone as they dry, Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylic incorporates the latest developments in resin technology to ensure colours retain their brilliance when dry. Offering a smooth, thick, buttery consistency with no stringiness, Professional Acrylic retains brushstrokes for excellent impasto effects, and dries to an even satin finish.

Colour Chart: Professional Acrylics

What is Acrylic paint?

Fast-drying and water based, Acrylic paint is comprised of a pigment suspended in an acrylic co-polymer binder. This is then applied to a support such as a canvas. The pigment fixes to the support upon evaporation of the water, producing a slight colour change in the process. Acrylic paint dries to a water-resistant, flexible finish, making it the ideal medium for a number of craft purposes including screen printing and model making.

All colours can be thinned with water to pale washes, or used directly from the pot or tube. The quick drying properties of the range enable the artist to work speedily, and a hairdryer may be used to further accelerate the drying process.

Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylic colours are fully intermixable and suitable for interior and exterior use, making them the perfect medium for all art and craft projects. Once completed and dry, a thin layer of varnish may be applied, to protect and preserve artwork. Varnish is available in satin, matt and gloss finishes.

Acrylic paints are water-based, so brushes used to apply the paint need only mild soap and water to clean them after use. This video illustrates how simple it is to clean and care for acrylic paint brushes.

Why choose Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylic?

Available in 60ml and 200ml sizes, Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylic has been developed to provide a longer working time on the palette, without compromising the drying time. Depending on paint’s thickness, the working time for Professional Acrylic is approximately 20-30 minutes.

Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylic colour blends easily, and can be mixed with Acrylic Mediums to create various effects, and thinned with water for water colour techniques.

Professional acrylic colours do not contain extenders to modify the gloss, allowing the natural properties of the pigments to shine. This means there is some variation in surface sheen across the different colours in the range.

Which surfaces best support Acrylic paint?

Containing linen textured paper, our Acrylic Painting Pads, feature an exceptional irregular textured surface, offering the ideal tooth for all acrylic colour.

Incredibly versatile, Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylic Colour can be used on almost any semi-absorbent surface, including canvas, wood, fabric, ceramic bisque and cardboard.  In some cases, the surface may need to be first treated with a primerAcrylic can even be painted onto a sheet of glass, and peeled off once dry.  This object can then be mounted as a free standing or hanging sculpture, or cut into pieces to make a mosaic.

Which brushes are best for Acrylic paint?

Specially developed for painting with acrylic colours, acrylic brushes have synthetic soft filaments, good snap and perfect spring, making them ideal for acrylic painting. Acrylic paint may also be mixed and applied using palette knives.

The Windsor Newton Acrylic paint is my favourite but the quality has changed since it moved to France. Some of the pigments in the colours are much weaker quality than before.
