Paint fast or paint slow with Chroma Atelier Interactive Acrylics!
Formulated using a patented technology, Atelier Interactive Acrylics offer artists a versatile set of working properties unlike those of any other paint. In application, they perform like conventional acrylics, allowing for traditional painting and glazing techniques. Yet they also give you unique control over the drying process — plus the ability to reactivate the paint, even when dry.
Professional-quality Atelier Interactive Acrylics are lightfast and archival, with exceptional consistency, brushability, and color load. They dry to a velvety satin finish. When purchased in 80 ml tubes, they offer one-third more paint than standard 60 ml tubes — and often costs less.

I am an artist and I love the products I get from Blick - I think Chroma Interactive acrylics are the best money can buy!
Interactive Acrylics Paint Are Terrific !
By Bob - Cat
from Rialto, California
S & B Design Studio uses the Chroma Interactive Paints exclusively because the paint drys extremely quickly, yet can be re liquidised by spraying a small amount of water on the hardened paint. We do 3D paintings by building up plaster on the canvas to give everything a raised 3D effect. Some features are almost a 1/2 inch above the normal surface- this really blows away our admirers and clients.Blick you are the "bomb" !
I always love the coverage and consistency of the paint.
On the Fence
I am on the fence about this paint. I wanted to try it due to its open blending qualities. It is a creamy light paint and blending is somewhat better than with other acrylics, when using the accompanying mediums. One must be careful not to use too much mediums. It did produce a nice smooth, matte finish. I think it will take a bit more experimenting to produce other results.
I Love Atelier Interactive Acrylics
Chroma interactive acrylics have amazing body and pigment!
I' m using Atelier acrylics because I wanted a relatively easy flowing paint to use over a black background. Atelier sent me some free samples to try and I liked them. They have high pigment content and are working well for this piece. I did have to go over a yellow area twice.The first two tubes of vermillion sent by Dick Blick were defective and were too thick to squeeze out of the tube, but were replaced promptly with no hassle by Blick. The third time they checked to be sure the paint was good.

Atelier Interactive are the best
from Indian Rocks Beach, FL
I am an prophetic artist. I do worship painting at church during the service. Sometimes it could be difficult to get certain results in the time normally assigned for ths activity. Atelier Interactive Acrylics are just the best. They flow with richness and versatility like no other. A few months ago I had gotten a free sample kit from the manufacturer and got attached to this paints. I can feel the difference when I place and slide the brush on the canvas. I could say "This is it, I'm staying here" :)

By c a color
from raleigh nc
Use in class with Seniors(75-95 yrs), paints do not dry out too fast, easy to work with and results are good. Colors are great, and quality of paints are great too. I have been using these paints for more than 10 years. Sometimes the paint left in the tube can be dry, and sometimes too watery before all used. Mostly paint is good.
Acrylics will never be the same again. Chroma Atelier Interactive Professional Artists Acrylic paint is both "traditional" and "revolutionary". Interactive, when used in conjunction with a simple water sprayer, can be kept wet and workable for as long as needed to complete and unify a painting — then dries rapidly as desired. It can even be "reopened" weeks and months later with the use of Unlocking Formula.
See Atelier Interactive acrylic paint in action. Internationally renowned artist Mitch Waite shows how Atelier Interactive acrylics can be used in traditional acrylic techniques or "re-opened" even days after the paint is dry for blending colors, removing paint and other special techniques.
