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 Original and Heavy Body 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.
This is definitely my first choice acrylic paint. It is great value for money, spreads easily on board, paper, canvas and also holds up to impasto techniques very well. The colour shift between wet and dry is quite acceptable and, has a lovely buttery consistency. As a professional artist, I recommend DR System 3 acrylics without hesitation.

Great basic product, If you are looking for something with more body there are other more expensive versions, but it does cover fairly well for the sort of work I produce. Antony South (Rotherham, United Kingdom) on 29 Mar 2021
