Sennelier has been a byword for quality among artists since 1887, year when Gustave Sennelier first opened his store as a colour merchant. He then developed extra-large paint tubes for the artist Nicolas de Staël and created the oil pastel for Pablo Picasso. 128 years later, Sennelier is innovating once again by launching the first range of acrylic paints for artists in a brand new style of packaging.
It is a fine acrylic paint which meets all the stringent quality demands that are a guarantee of Sennelier paints: its pigment concentration – quite amazing for this segment of the market – gives it a creamy-to-thick consistency which is called “Heavy Body”, along with incomparable covering power. The paste is a pleasure to handle with a brush, a palette knife or straight out of the soft pack . Its ease of application onto multiple surfaces makes it very popular with students, professional painters, street artists, and many more creative people.
