Every about Matisse Acrylics are awesome, strong colour, great flow and I know they are going to stay on my canvas
I know people rave about the interactive acrylics. Personally i find these MUCH easier to work with. Much higher pigmentation:binder ratio?
I don't use the title Artist
On 11 December 2019, a routine injection for a migraine severed my sciatic nerve in my left leg. I was in my fourth year of obedience training with my Red Heeler, Hey Jude. Obedience training is a daily activity and a Sunday morning at the club grounds. I must walk with a walking stick; obedience training takes two hands, voice, and proper body language. At age 71 this leads me back to an old hobby of sketching and a new interest in acrylics. I have collected forty colour's. Art Supplies Australia offers a fair price and good service, I will be back. I have purchased paints that claim to be acrylic and been extremely disappointed. Matisse is my favourite and is the best, being Australian owned and manufactured is a positive.
In the last 20 years holding strong
Compared to other acrylic paints Derivan Matisse is holding stong, tried multiple brands over the last 20 years. But just as I started with Matisse Structure I am still only ended up with Matisse structure paint.
The Structure paint is rich in pigment and texture which is perfect for covering underlying paint, also if required easily thined with water to make it flow.
Art Supplies Australia has the best price at the momement.
