Paints arrived! Chroma Interactive asks me to product test new paints- Seattle, WA

Chroma Interactive artist's acrylic paints in 12 colors of my choice will be the medium I use on the next batch of paintings. Chroma wants feedback from artists on the product. They ask in return for an image of a painting I create that they may use for marketing the paints. I am quite happy to be a product tester for these paints. The colors are vivid and the paint has a consistency of extremely thick cream- and is just as luscious. I am going to try using the paints right from the jars and mixing colors directly on the painting surface rather than on palettes, as the consistency lends itself to that technique. I have been using Golden Paints, which are thicker and must be scooped out of the jars with a palette knife. I have loved my Goldens, but am very excited to be trying out paints that will change my painting technique. End results coming soon!


Invitation to Working Artists Program by Chroma Paint as Dog Artist- Seattle, WA

I was contacted by Chroma Paint, an Australian based acrylic paint manufacturer specializing in quick drying paints that can be reactivated and reworked, even after the paint is dry.Chroma makes Atelier Interactive Paint, and has offered to send me 12 complimentary tubes of my choice of colors to try, as well as the Unlocking Formula and some glazing mediums. In return, I will send them samples of work created with their paint and give them feedback on how I like working with the paint. Nice! Chroma has developed an "Unlocking Formula" which can be sprayed on the dry paint to reactivate it for reworking. I am especially interested to see if these paints and mediums will resolve a problem I've had for years- mixed paint drying out on the palette. The dried out edges of palette paint end up leaving tiny bits of dried paint on the canvas, which then become small bumps- not a texture I would like to have on the canvas.
