Artists' Quality Acrylic Sennelier
Smooth and creamy texture
Today, we have applied our expertise, experience and unerring eye for colour to create Sennelier Extra-Fine Acrylic Paints. These new acrylics incorporate the many qualities that are demanded by today’s artists seeking a wide array of renderings in one paint. Smooth and creamy texture, rich and glossy colours with fresh and intense tones. Sennelier has selected pigments of the highest quality, from the most demanding chemical laboratories, in order to maximize purity and clarity of tone. With 120 shades, Sennelier offers one of the broadest palettes on the market
Sennelier maintains a tradition of artisanal fabrication, subject to strict and constant quality control. Each stage of production is rigorously tested in the laboratory. A product is only launched on the market after a serie of tests confirming that it meets very specific requirements for colour, lightfastness, consistency, saturation, value, pH, and drying time. All products in the extra-fine acrylic line conform to the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) standard D4236 concerning toxicity and safety. The colours also meet the ASTM D5098 standard, testifying to their lightfastness.
