Being lucky enough to be Holbein’s product and technical specialist for nearly 18 years, I’ve had the opportunity to try and work with everything Holbein produces. I am always confident with the quality of materials that I work with and have never been dissatisfied with my results when using Holbein Color.

From Designer Gouache to Acrylic Inks to Heavy Body Acrylic to Acryla Gouache to DUO water-based oils, my art supply drawer is always full of Holbein products!
by Iris Scott
When I first tried Holbein DUO Aqua Oil color I found that not only were the colors more outrageously brighter than their saturated packaging, but the consistency of the paint was perfect for thick finger painting because there was no stickiness. Regardless of color or hue, I could switch from one tube to another without EVER losing the consistent feel.

As a spontaneous, creative and intuitive painter, who works both transparently and opaquely, and as a painter who works both abstractly and realistically, I need a stable of superior performing products and paints with different viscosities and abilities. Who gives me that, Holbein of course!
by Linda Kemp
As a painter who loves to experiment with both watercolour and acrylic I count on Holbein paints for their uniform viscosity and finely ground, glorious pigments. The exceptional range of products enable me to achieve elegant flowing transparent glazes and velvety, smooth opaque passages. Holbein is my unequivocal choice!

Holbein paints are the finest materials I have ever used, and I’ve tried them all (other brands). I trust the quality of all Holbein products because they sturdy and work very hard to use the finest materials from all over the world, to make their product the best on the market.

“I highly recommend Holbein watercolors to all of my students and artists friends that are serious about using the best artist quality watercolor available. Holbein colors are both intense and superb to work with. Holbein watercolors never dry to a hard clump and re-liquefy immediately when hit with just a few drops of water. These attributes and many more, make Holbein the best watercolor available today. I encourage all other artists to try this fantastic watercolor”
by - Robert Burridge on Holbein Heavy Body Artist Acrylic
“I have painted with Holbein Acrylic Paints for twenty years, on canvas as well as 300lb watercolor paper. I have personally tested each and painted with the complete line of 113 colors. They flow smoothly from my brush and intermix beautifully and cohesively every time. The Heavy Body Acrylic is light, yet thick enough for creating texture when I want it”
by Linda Kemp
Holbein’s extensive range of paints provides highly saturated colors that remain true to the natural qualities, hue and purity of organic and inorganic pigments. This is essential to me as my personal technique incorporates the layering of transparent and opaque applications of color as I attempt to create unique visual effects.

“Holbein never fails to impress with the quality of their paints, and most of all I am impressed at how enthusiastically they stand behind their products. I feel strongly about using well crafted supplies that are created by people who believe in them. After using the water based oils for a time, I was introduced to their gouache, which I adore. Their traditional oil paints are what I am using on my current project. The colors are bright, vibrant and lasting.”
by Randy Martinez
My favorite aspect of the entire Holbein product line is the consistency of the pigments. Whether you are using oil, acrylic, Ink, or Acryla Gouache, the pigments are consistent. It makes my life as an illustrator, who sometimes has to retouch my artwork, so much easier. Quite honestly, I have yet to find any limitations using Holbein products, which means my creativity will never have limitation, and I love that.

“These acrylic fluid paints are more fluid and act like an intense watercolor, dye, stain or patina. Another exceptional quality line from Holbein.”
by Jerry VanderStelt
My experience with Holbein art materials has been a real pleasure, especially the Aeroflash acrylic ink. Simply put, Aeroflash is THE best acrylic ink paint on the planet! Very forgiving when I need to erase, without leaving a rubbery sheen and stays matte as it should! Aeroflash has a beautiful matte finish, not to mention is available in 60 gorgeous colors. My art would suffer seriously without Holbein’s Aeroflash!

For performance and reliability I depend on the unsurpassed quality of Holbein products.
