An Acrylic paint worthy of the Old Holland name. Developed to complement the Old Holland Classic Oil range used by the old masters, the New Masters Acrylic range has been created for today's contemporary masters. The expansive 168 colour range is lightfast and include opaque and transparent colours, an extensive selection of metallic, pearlescent, iridescent and interference colours with the same colour strength, satin gloss and intensity as oil colours and hardly any colour difference between the wet and dry paint. The paint dries to a satin gloss and can be used in a wide range of techniques, from thick impasto to ultra-thin glazing.
The Old Holland research laboratory thoroughly tested more than 250 pigments and many different mediums before a selection was made of only the best available of these, irrespective of the cost, which were incorporated into every series.
In contrast to the many major producers of acrylic paints, Old Holland chose a 100% pure acrylic medium above the more obvious resins available worldwide. While more expensive, this choice adds a unique characteristic to the New Masters range. In other words, as the world's first producer of oil paint, Old Holland is rightly proud of the fact that New Masters Classic Acrylics have the same characteristics and texture as Old Holland's oil paint. This bears witness to the quality of New Masters; visually it is indistinguishable, in terms of colour strength, gloss and intensity, from the oil paint range which forms the basis of the Old Holland legacy.
