With Original and Heavy Body versions, System 3 acrylics are highly versatile, water-based acrylic colors. They offer an excellent painting experience at an economical price. Only high quality pigments are used in the manufacture of the System 3 acrylic ranges, offering a high degree of loading for an acrylic range in this class.
System 3ís comprehensive range of colors offers excellent light-fastness*, permanence, durability and covering power. All colors can be thinned with water to pale washes or used directly from the pot or tube; each form dries quickly to create an insoluble film. The quick drying properties of the range enable the artist to work quickly, superimposing or juxtaposing colors without unnecessary fuss.
All System 3 Original and Heavy Body colors are fully intermixable and suitable for interior use. As they are not lightfast, fluorescent colors are not recommended for exterior use; all other colors are both lightfast and durable.
With its exceptional heavy body consistency, System 3 Heavy Body is ideal for achieving textured effects and using impasto techniques. It retains brush marks, holds its shape, allows the creation of motion and adds volume to your artwork.
Since the introduction of System 3 acrylics in 1987, these colors have been successfully used to decorate paper, wood, canvases and uneven surfaces such as rough plaster or masonry. Tests on concrete slabs demonstrate the superior durability of System 3 in all weather conditions. System 3 has been used extensively for painting murals on school walls and, with the use of suitable primers, can be used even more widely on materials such as metals and plastics.
