ART SUPPLY REVIEWS – CHARVIN & MATISSE ACRYLIC PAINT

Hello all,

I have been approached by art supply companies to experiment and review their products. I have decided to give it a chance and I am really happy that I did so. I use my local art supply stores and will continue to support them but some of these products have to be mentioned!

Here is a new piece that I am working on. All the angles and sharp lines must be very clean and precise.

I am using Acrylic paint supplies provided by Jerry’s Artarama http://www.jerrysartarama.com and here are the highlights of this experience.

1 – CHARVIN of Paris Extra Fine Artist’s Acrylics – I am very impressed by this acrylic paint! I love how the acrylic paint behaves similarly to oil paint, with the difference of drying time, and allows me the create very straight lines. Because of it’s pigment density and creamy consistency, my work is really clean. I am so glad that I have found this product as I will use a lot of it in my upcoming works.

Take a look, the black paint in CHARVIN.

2 – MATISSE Structure Acrylic – There a few features that I liked in this product. The first one is the Flip Cap. This cap has a flip top so you are not wrestling with the cap that gets stuck in your paint tubes. Check it out:

In my current work I have used the bright blue that you see in the picture. I enjoyed to use this paint as well as a little bit went a long way and the transparency in this particular color and material is supreme. I will be adding this product to my list of purchases as well!

The light fluid blue is Matisse Structure Acrylic.

This has been a great experience and I look forward to reviewing and experimenting with new materials and products in the future. I hope this is useful to the readers of my blog and followers of my career and website!

Have a great spring!
