LEARN MORE ABOUT SYSTEM 3
System3 Acrylic Paint
From respected colour-maker Daler-Rowney, System 3 Original Acrylic Colour is a versatile range offering you good-quality acrylic colour at an excellent price. The pigment-loading is greater than comparable ranges, increasing covering power, and both lightfastness (apart from fluorescents, as with other brands) and permanence are excellent. It's also quick-drying and can be thinned with water for washes, making it ideal for everyday use, particularly for work on large areas. Once dry acrylics are permanent and water-resistant. Range is sold in 59ml, 150ml, 250ml and 500ml in selected colours. Stocked in all our UK stores. Full range available online.
System3 Fluid Acrylic Paint
Fluid acrylics are acrylic paints with a runny or thin consistency, designed to flow and spread easily without sacrificing colour intensity. Fluid acrylics are ideal for pouring or dribbling paint, rather than applying it with a brush.
So If you’re looking for a highly versatile medium that allows you to experiment with both the look and style, then acrylic paints are the medium for you. With their easily mixable functionality, as well as the ability to create paintings that look like watercolour or oil paintings, or going for more traditional finishes such as gloss or matte, acrylics are extremely adaptable to your needs and style.
