A superior academic acrylic, made in the U.K. Colors are heavy body, allowing for textural work; not soupy like most acrylics from the 'school' category. In fact, Daler-Rowney Graduate acrylics are at the head of their class. Available in 500 ml bottle
Graduate Acrylic colours are of good pigment strength and flow easily across paper and primed surfaces. Colours are water-based and contain no solvents. In accordance with EC labelling regulations, all colours are classified as non-dangerous for use.
The advantage of acrylic colours to schools and hobbyists, of course, is that artwork can be dried and stored away shortly after an art class has been completed, and will not smudge if water is spilled on the surface of the painting. The colours are fast-drying, durable and flexible, so paintings will last a long time. Paper and canvas coated with Graduate Acrylic can be loosely rolled and stored without fear of cracking.
