My new art supplier!

As an artist I need access to materials at a good price and fast delivery. This company gives both.
Really nice for layering techniques
By Barbara Fisher
The System 3 paints--mostly I use the fluorescent colors, but the metallics get used, too--a nice heavy body acrylic that is a great texture. Not to thick, but not too thin, and while they give good coverage, you can still layer them and have colors show through them. For a lot of my collage work where I want layers to show through this is great. The price point is great too. I also will load the brush with layers of different colors and then make brushstrokes to get nice dimensional blended brushstrokes and that works really well here, too.
Best medium bodied acrylics out there
from Saint Marys, GA
I paint with no other acrylics. These are the best. I love the flow, the body, the richness of the colors and much more.
from Fort Lauderdale, FL
Love the consistency of these paints. They mix easily with a little water to get me a more smooth application, and give great translucently when thinned out. I'm all about their fluorescents....but the fluorescent blue dries a bit dark for my taste. The others I have used have great luminosity and are consistent tube to tube.

All Time Favorite
from Jacksonville, FL
I teach art to adults and children. I use the System 3 acrylics because they are consistent, creamy, and have great coverage. I've tried other acrylic but keep returning to the System 3.
Easy to manage, not too thick as others are..
No problem to achieve detailed paintings.
Great bang for your buck
from New Orleans, LA
I really like this acrylic. It comes out of the tube at a nice consistency and you don't really need medium to get it to move around. Colors seem to say vibrant as well. Highly recommended.
love these paints
I have the 500 ml containers of Daler Rowney all through my workroom. I love the richness of the colors and the way they flow.
By Mama Rue
from Pawleys Island, SC
I bought the process color package. The Magenta has way to much "blue" to mix a proper red with process yellow. The other colors work well enough. I think I will try another brand of magenta till I get the right one.
