Intensely pigmented, extraordinarily lightfast, and completely resistant to aging, Lascaux Artist Acrylics combine the advantages of traditional oil colors with the convenience of water-soluble, durable and quick-drying acrylics. They have exceptional covering power, all colors dry to an equally hard, yet elastic satin finish that remains insoluble in water, and they layer exceptionally well with no shrinking. Lascaux Artists' Acrylic consist of only the purest hand selected pigments and a unique co-polymer binder for the most beautiful vibrancy and handling available in acrylic paints. Colors are made to individual formulations to exploit the full splendor of each individual pigment and so display true resonance, transparency and intensity. The consistency of Lascaux Artists' Acrylics is thick and will allow for impasto technique. Diluted with water, their high pigment concentration becomes evident, showing vibrancy and purity even in thin washes. Colors do not oxidize, yellow or crack even in the thickest layers.
