Jo Sonja's Artists' Colors have been designed specifically to meet the needs of artists who not only demand the finest quality pigments, but are concerned about the longevity of their work and require a painting system with truly unlimited applications. Jo Sonja's Artists' Colors are formula acrylics offering opacity, superb handling characteristics, and the beautiful, velvet matte finish associated with traditional gouache. Unlike gouache, they are water-resistant and will not chip or crack when cured. Jo Sonja's Artists' Colours also have wonderful fine art applications, such as painting on canvas, airbrushing, wildfowl art, and watercolour techniques. Illustrators enjoy the fast drying times and the matte,velvet finish.
