Derivan Student Acrylics have the versatility for a broad range of painting techniques. Derivan Student is a fast drying, non-toxic and water-based paint with bright, opaque colours that can be used on most porous surfaces, including paper, cardboard, wood, MDF, plaster and canvas. Great for teaching colour mixing, producing strong pure secondary and tertiary colours. It has a smooth buttery consistency. Can also be used for screen printing, block printing and painting from impasto to water-colour effects.
