Specifically, Polycolor acrylics have a unique matte, velvety appearance, and the full range of colors dries with these characteristics. The look of the colors almost have a gouache type appearance, but with the benefits and qualities of a traditional acrylic. The colors in the range were also selected for their high lightfast rating, which makes them a popular choice for professional applications or outdoor murals. Recently, one of our customers posted the following review of Maimeri Polycolors:
I am a muralist; 10 years ago a wonderful sales consultant at Rex Art highly suggested that I try this product. It changed my life, truly! It’s a fantastic paint that holds up to sun and even waterpark chemicals. The first mural I painted with this product was in a very wet waterpark with inadequate ventilation. It’s still there, in it’s original state. The bright brilliant colors are remarkable. And, it’s affordable enough to help me stay under budget. THANK YOU, Rex Art for recommending this product.
