With its longer working time, extensive colour selection, superior covering power, and affordable price, Holbein Heavy Body Acrylics are sure to find a home in every painter’s palette. Holbein completely re-engineered their acrylic colour line in 2013 to deliver more colour vigor and higher lightfast ratings. The new 113 colour palette consists of colour derived from both Western and Easter influences, specifically designed to add luster, intensity and brilliance to your work. The heavy-body formula has a unique texture similar to that of extra fine oils. It is brushable and will retain any peaks or ridges created in thick applications. Plus it can be thinned with water or Holbein Acrylic Mediums, or scrumbled as thin dry brush layer. Try the new gels to thicken, extend and texture your colour. Use mediums to thin and create watercolour and wet-into-wet techniques using acrylics.

Professional quality at an affordable price. Download your own copy of the Holbein Brochure.
