Colour Range

Artists Paint

The need for a comprehensive range of colours which are aligned with the scene designers range of artists tube colours to aid the colour matching to designs.

Colours must be manufactured from good quality pigment so as to ensure clean, vibrant colours.

Even secondary and intermediate colours, where critical, should be produced from pure pigments and not from intermixing colours. The colours are consistent with the artists pallette.

The paint can be applied by brush, roller or spray gun to fabric and to built pieces. As the paint is manufactured from pure pigment, the colour is clean and vibrant.
