Acrylic Art paints provide qualities such as quick drying time and a tough finish that makes them ideal for use on almost any surface such as canvas, wood, paper, fabric, metal, etc. Here is a 24-tube color set made by the Reeves Company, a manufacturer in the U.K. producing quality art materials since 1766. The set incorporates those qualities that make acrylics such a pleasure to use. The colors have a smooth, buttery consistency with good tinting strength and great covering power. They have excellent lightfastness and provide a satin finish. They are, of course, water base but dry quickly and with a tough finish. The colors can be applied over one another to cover mistakes, can be painted on with an impasto effect or thinned down to create watercolor-like qualities.
