System 3 Original Acrylic Colour 75ml

Original System 3 acrylics are highly versatile, water-based acrylic colours. They offer an excellent painting experience at an economical price. Only high quality pigments are used in the manufacture of the System 3 acrylic ranges, offering significantly greater loading than in other student acrylic ranges in this class. System 3’s comprehensive range of colours offers excellent light-fastness*, permanence, durability and covering power.

All colours can be thinned with water to pale washes or used directly from the pot or tube; each form dries quickly to create an insoluble film. The quick drying properties of the range enable the artist to work quickly, superimposing or juxtaposing colours without unnecessary fuss.

All System 3 Original and Heavy Body colours are fully intermixable and suitable for interior use. As they are not lightfast, fluorescent colours are not recommended for exterior use; all other colours are both lightfast and durable.

*All but fluorescent colours; by their nature fluorescent pigments are not lightfast.

Mixed Media
System 3 colours can be used successfully in combination with many other media.  They can be used for undercoat-painting before using other colours such as oils, pastels or FW or Calligraphy acrylic inks.  Artists’ pencils, charcoal, pastels and coloured crayons can also be worked over the surface of System 3 acrylics.  If required, fixing can be achieved in the normal way.

Brushes: All System 3 acrylic colours can be washed from brushes using water and household soap or domestic washing-up liquid.  Never allow colour to dry on the brush, once it is dry, it can only be removed with considerable difficulty!

Clothes: Immediately remove excess paint and apply liberal quantities of soap and water.  Machine-wash as soon as possible.  This will minimise damage but is unlikely to remove all staining!
