System 3 is a high-quality, flow-formula, water based acrylic coloured paint which offers an excellent painting experience at an economical price. It is a comprehensive range which offers excellent light-fastness*, permanence, durability and covering power. All colours can be thinned with water to create pale washes or used directly from the pot or tube. In either form the colour dries quickly to create an insoluble film. The quick drying properties of the range enable the artist to work quickly, placing colours over each other or side by side without any problem. Acrylic mediums can also be added to extend the creative possibilities, including screen printing. System 3 Original has a medium body consistency. It is designed to offer the perfect compromise between firmer, more controlled applications of colour and the need to cover large areas swiftly and evenly. The range has 60 colours and is available in 75ml and 150ml tubes and 250ml and 500ml pots, with 15 of the most popular colours available in 2.25lt pots and 6 in 1lt pots. *All colours apart from fluorescent colours;by their nature fluorescent pigments are not lightfast.
