Since 1887, the Sennelier name has been synonymous with quality, artist-driven innovation, and an unfailing commitment to the advancement of art. Now, Sennelier has turned its expertise, experience, and unerring eye for color to creating a line of artist-quality acrylics.
Sennelier Extra-Fine Artist Acryliques contain only the highest-quality pigments, selected to assure clarity, purity, opacity, and stability over time. A broad palette of 120 colors, most made from a single pigment, includes all the colors that made Sennelier’s Artists’ Oils famous, including traditional Ultramarines, Earths, Ochres, Cadmiums, Cobalts, and colors based on Quinacridone, Pyrrole, Naphthol, and Phthalocyanine. The line also features four interference and six iridescent colors.
Sennelier maintains a tradition of artisanal fabrication, subject to strict and constant quality control. Each stage of production is rigorously tested in the laboratory.
With a texture that duplicates the rich, creamy working properties of Sennelier Artists’ Oils, Sennelier Extra-Fine Acryliques are ideal for working with layers or wash drawings; in combination with other techniques such as pastels, charcoal, or ink; in overlays; and for creating collages and inlays. They can be used outdoor as well as in the studio, and adhere well to non-oily surfaces, including paper, canvas, cardboard canvas, wood, fabric, cement, plaster, and some plastics and metals.
They can be worked with a brush, painting knife, metal spatula, fingers, or directly from the tube to obtain thick lines. Their excellent spreading properties make them easy to mix, allowing for an infinite number of shades without altering luminosity. They are excellent for coatings and can be mixed with Sennelier mediums and retarders to modify their texture, viscosity, transparency, or luminosity. They are low-odor and dry rapidly to create a permanent, insoluble, non-cracking, non-yellowing, water-resistant film.
Travel Set — This set includes six, 21 ml tubes of Sennelier Acrylique Paint, including Titanium White, Yellow Ochre, Phthalo Blue (Red Shade), Hansa Yellow Medium, Napthol Red, and Ivory Black.
