Shipped in:

Durable pure acrylics for interior and exterior applications. 24 strong, lightfast (non-fading) colors. Specifically optimised for Marbling and Pouring Art.
Medium body paints i.e. thicker than normal wall paint but not thick like heavy body paint in a tube. All colours in the range now have the same viscosity (thickness) so for basic techniques you can pre-mix them all with the same ratios of Flow Control and water. 
Paints with "for M&P" in the color name are perfect for both Marbling and Pouring Art. Some colors state "for Pouring" and these should not be used for marbling and some colours state "for Marbling" and these should not be used for Pouring. 
These Paints For Acrylic Pouring
The strong colours make these products great for Acrylic Pouring Art. Use them together with our exceptional quality Flow Control and Turbo-Cell or Non-Oily Cell Former. Start with 1 part paint to 1 part Flow Control (by volume) and then add a little water to increase the flow further as required. A good mixing ratio for cell formation with these paints and Flow Control is 5:5:1 e.g. 15ml Paint : 15ml Flow Control : 3ml Water. Mix until uniform and then add a drop of Turbo Cell to each colour. Without a little water the mixture will be a bit thick to give good cell formation. 
All our other Permanent Paints (especially Bright Neon/UV, and Metallic Paints) are also great for acrylic pouring art and can also be purchased on this website. Metallic Paints should be used for highlighting and not usually on their own in acrylic pours. Our Metallic Paints are soft body paints so mixing them with an equal volume of Flow Control is fine and the addition of water is not normally required. 
These Paints For Marbling
See our wonderful 2 page "Beginner Guide to Marbling" in the technical section of this website.
Perfect for the marbling of paper, most fabrics and other porous surfaces.
If you are a Marbler you will know the importance of using good quality acrylics that give repeatable spread results and that are compatible with each other with similar push and spread properties.
13 of these acrylic paints have been surfactant optimised for marbling. Usually you will not need to add surfactant to our paints and should dilute as follows: 2 parts water to 1 part paint. For smaller marbling baths you can dilute with 1 part water to 1 part paint.
We developed our paints for marbling in partnership with Larissa Don, one of the world's leading Marblers. She tested and we adjusted the formulations until she was happy and also supplies our paints to her customers. Larissa also uses and supplies the same Marbling Gel Powder, Marbling Fixative Powder and Marbling Surfactant that we supply. If you need professional marbled apparel contact Larissa at: or send her a What's App: +27 73 638 6251."
Our Permanent Metallic Paints and Permanent Bright Neon/UV Paints can also be used in marbling art.

About the pigments we use in this paint range.
Artists love to know what pigments are used in their paints. They generally research their pigments and know which are lightfast and which are not. They also know pigment colours and how they behave when mixed with other colours. Some of our Marbling and Pouring Acrylic Paints are pure pigment paints while others are manufacturered with pigment blends. We have selected only lightfast pigments that are suitable for archival quality art. A PDF called "Pigment Table" can be downloaded from this web page and it details the pigments we use in every colour. Simply by Googling the Colour Index number you will be able to read about each of the pigments we use.
  • Cadmium based pigments are well known in many bright art paint colours including reds and yellows. We don't use any cadmium based pigments but our bismuth vanadate and diketo-pyrrolo pyrrole red and orange pigments are excellent, far more environmentally friendly substitutes.
  • All our oxide colours are earthy. Some paint manufactures call the Red Oxide colour Venetian Red and the Yellow Oxide colour Yellow Ochre. Maroon Oxide is very interesting as it is the same pigment used in Red Oxide only in a flocculated form which shifts it significantly towards blue. Chrome Green Oxide is a dull green and an extremely natural colour well suited to African landscape scenes. 
  • We only have two colours that tend towards being pastel shades; Cerise Pink and Blaze Orange. 
  • Quinacridone Maroon is deeper and more blue than Quinacridone Magenta which has a brighter hue. 
  • Ultramarine Blue is a bright blue with a red undertone while Phthalo Blue is a little less bright and has a green undertone. 
  • Ultramarine Violet is a bright violet while Dioxazine Violet has a deep, powerful violet colour. 
  • In some colours we have blended pigments together with titanium dioxide to give the paints good opacity. While one would not do this for pure art paints, these blended pigment paints give good results in Acrylic Pouring.

Suitable for interior and exterior arts and crafts but optimised specifically for Acrylic Pouring Art and Marbling Art. 
Lightfast colours that will not fade in sunlight. 
For normal arts and crafts applications apply these paints with brush, roller of airless spray.
1 litre paints approximately 10 m2.
For marbling it would be normal to dilute these paints with 2 parts of water (add 200ml water to 100ml paint) and not to add any surfactant. Only add surfactant to the paint if you specifically require more spreading on the marbling bath surface. If using paints that are not made by us then you may well need to add our Concentrated Surfactant to increase their spread.
For Acrylic Pouring usually mix 1 part Flow Control with 1 part Paint (by volume) then add a little water to get the exact required flow; don't use more than 1 Part Flow Control by volume.
 e.g. 15ml Paint : 15ml Flow Control : 3ml Water. Mix until uniform and then add a drop of Turbo Cell to each colour. Without a little water the mixture will be a bit thick to give good cell formation.
