Winsor & Newton - Artists' Acrylics
Winsor & Newton were established in London in 1832. By 1841 they had been granted a Royal warrant by Queen Victoria. Today, to qualify for a warrant the business has to prove they have good environmental practices.
Winsor & Newton have a range of 80 intense colours of a buttery consistency, that dry to a satin finish. All colours in the range are classified permanent with excellent lightfastness. There is minimal colour shift from wet to dry.
Tip from Debra: W & N mediums are twice the price of Matisse mediums and they are not sold here all that much. I suggest you use Matisse mediums as they are premium quality.
