System 3 paints offer an excellent painting experience at an economical price. Only high quality pigments are used in the manufacture of the System 3 acrylic ranges, offering significantly greater loading than in other acrylic ranges in this class.
System 3’s comprehensive range of colours offers excellent light-fastness*, permanence, durability and covering power. All colours can be thinned with water to pale washes or used directly from the pot or tube; each form dries quickly to create an insoluble film. The quick drying properties of the range enable the artist to work quickly, superimposing or juxtaposing colours without unnecessary fuss.
All System 3 colours are fully intermixable and suitable for interior use. As they are not lightfast, fluorescent colours are not recommended for exterior use; all other colours are both lightfast and durable.
*All but fluorescent colours; by their nature fluorescent pigments are not lightfast.
Quality of paint inferior. Daler Rowney used to equate with quality for me. Not any more. The paint is thinner and it dries too quickly meaning you can't mix enough to finish what you started and nigh well impossible to remix and match, so your work becomes patchy and streaky. The colours are more brash and toxic looking too. Again doesn't mix well, the shades achieved are dull and uninteresting. Also very disappointed that the tubes are plastic. Last time I bought 15 years ago the tubes were metal which is where we need to go again. I doubt these paints will last as long without drying out. Will not buy this brand again.
It's time companies stop watering everything down to increase their profits. In the end there is no product left, only coloured water! Lorna Harvey (Calne, United Kingdom) on 2 Jun 2020
As a Beginner to painting I do not have a great deal of experience to draw on.However I find that System three acrylics fit the bill for me. Bright colours, and reasonable price. I like how they can give texture to a painting if used straight from the tube via a palet knife or with nice thick strokes of the brush. Anthony Barker (Preston, United Kingdom) on 28 Jun 2019
Not used yet as replacement tubes for when I run out. Hopefully the flip tops will be an improvement on the 75ml tube screw tops. Jennifer Roberts (Brackley, United Kingdom) on 28 Feb 2019
