Cryla Acrylic Paint Supplies


What is Cryla Artists’ acrylic?

Daler-Rowney Cryla is a collection of artists’ acrylic paints and complementary brushes that date back to the 1960s. The Daler-Rowney Cryla collection has been the professional's choice since 1963 when it was launched in Europe as the first of its kind.

Cryla Artists’ acrylic paints

Cryla acrylic paint is one of the leading choices for acrylic paints in the UK, providing a beautiful, heavy-bodied colour with a high loading of permanent, lightfast pigments. This gives the paint a unique heavy, buttery feel under the brush, and gives a textured and lifted look on the paint surface. The Cryla acrylics are also praised for their minimal colour shift, meaning you can paint with confidence, knowing that your colours will remain consistent when drying.

The variety of colours available in the Cryla acrylic collection is one of the main appeals. You’ll find the standard colours you have come to expect, alongside unique shades such as Nickel Titanate Yellow, Carmine Hue, Phthalo Turquoise and Golden Ochre. The rainbow of shades on offer in the Cryla acrylic collection gives you flexibility when painting, and provides a wonderful scope to work with.

Cryla artists’ acrylic is a high-quality acrylic paint that is the ideal pick for a variety of creative endeavours. Whilst it is, of course, a classic choice for traditional painting, the Daler-Rowney Cryla acrylics are also a fantastic acrylic choice impasto technique, and acrylic pour painting too.

Tools within the Cryla collection

Many artists choose to complement their use of Cryla acrylic paints with Cryla brushes. These specialist brushes have natural-look synthetic fibres that offer good, even performance and strong levels of durability, especially when used with Cryla acrylic paints. The Cryla brushes also hold their spring with acrylics and come to a fine point and chisel edge every time.

Artists who work with both dry brush techniques and wet brush techniques successfully use the Cryla brushes from the Cryla acrylic collection, so a variety of finishes and creative approaches are possible within the Daler-Rowney Cryla collection.

Some artists may also choose to work with a palette knife when using Cryla acrylic paints. It is popular with artists wanting to achieve a wide variety of impasto effects and result in a bold and striking finish.
