Derivan Artist is a professional range of acrylic colours designed to be water-resistant and lightfast. Derivan Artist is equivalent in colour strength and permanency to most professional grades of paint but is much more affordable.
Derivan Artist can be used in combination with the Derivan Painting Mediums range, or, for a wider choice of mediums, the Matisse Medium range. Derivan Artist will give equally fantastic results used as a thick impasto paint or with the use of water and mediums as a watercolour, screen printing ink on paper, airbrushing, or fabric paint.
Derivan Artist is available in a range of 24 pure, brilliant, non-toxic, colours formulated for art schools, teachers colleges and senior art students. These water based acrylics dry water resistant in minutes to allow for bleed-proof overpainting. The smooth dense non-settling colours have excellent pigment grind and improved colour strength, dispersion and opacity. ASTM lightfastness rating code on each label.
