Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylic Sets

Unrivaled in brilliance, Winsor & Newton’s new line of Professional Acrylics combines a revolutionary transparent binder that eliminates color shift from wet to dry with the highest-quality, maximum-strength pigments to ensure clean, strong colors with wonderful working properties.

Brilliance, defined as the richness, intensity and depth of a color, is possibly the most important quality of an acrylic paint. Consequently, in the development of Professional Acrylics, Winsor & Newton combined its world-beating color-making experience to ensure an unrivaled brilliance and depth of color in the range. Brilliance does not mean the colors are garish. Rather, it pertains to clarity and purity of color, which should be evident when the color is applied straight from the tube as well as in the thinnest of films. Even the earths, blacks, and whites are clean and not dull.

Only the purest pigments are used in Professional Acrylics, formulated individually to ensure the the cleanest, brightest, and strongest colors to give a wider choice and better color-mixing capabilities. Each individual formulation uses the maximum amount of pigment possible — without extenders — to produce a brilliant color with the broadest handling properties.

Formerly known and Winsor & Newton Artists' Acrylics, Winsor & Newton Professional Acrylics have a new name and new look, but their reliable quality remains unchanged.

During the transition in stock, you may receive a combination of new tubes and old tubes. Rest assured, they both contain the same outstanding formulations you've come to know and trust.


Until now acrylic paints have tended to darken in tone as they dry, making color-matching difficult from wet palette to dry canvas. Color shift is due to the binder changing from white to transparent as it dries. As the white emulsion dries within the color and becomes clear, the paint becomes more transparent and therefore darker.

Winsor & Newton’s expertise in color-making and resin technology has resulted in a unique binder that is translucent when wet and dries clear — ensuring virtually no shift in color, and colors that remain as brilliant when dry as they are when wet. The result is a range that allows artists to match colors more easily from palette to canvas and see a painting as it will actually look when finished.
