Daler-Rowney has provided artists with the very best colours and materials for over 225 years. Since 1783 when brothers Richard and Thomas Rowney started preparing and selling artists' colours in London, painters worldwide have been convinced by the excellent quality of Daler-Rowney products. Using the knowledge gained over centuries of colour manufacturing, coupled with new technologies and materials that are being developed, Daler-Rowney has always undertaken a continuous programme of technical improvement to create ranges such as Cryla Artists’ Acrylic that surpass all previous standards.
Cryla Artists’ Acrylic was introduced by Rowney & co. in 1963 and pioneered the use of artists’ acrylics in Europe; it is one of the significant milestones in the company’s development. Cryla Artists’ Acrylic colour is a very heavy-bodied colour with a high loading of permanent, lightfast pigments. The unique heavy, buttery feel under the brush and knife is popular with artists wanting to achieve a wide variety of impasto effects.
