Fine Artists' Oil Colour

Lefranc artists' oil offers one of the most varied ranges of colours available in the Fine Arts market.
Since 2003, the range has increased to include a selection of 119 colours, all pigmented to maximum strength, giving them excellent colouring power and a remarkable intensity of the tints.

Fine Acrylic Colours

Made using finely ground fine arts pigments dispersed in an acrylic-based emulsion.
The paint dries very rapidly by water evaporation, the resin particles knit together to form a supple, satin-textured and indelible plastic film.
The 45 colours are characterised by their excellent lightfastness and remain stable without yellowing over time.
Can be used on any non-oily support. Canvases or ready prepared canvas boards must be coated with "non-oily" or "universal" primers.

Conté- sketching crayons

The Conté Sketching crayons include various highly reputed Sanguine colours, Grey and Bistre, 3 grades of white and black complete the range. These crayons are very soft to apply and manufactured using natural pigments (iron oxides, carbon black, titanium dioxide), clay (kaolin) and a binder (cellulose ether).
