Arteza Haul DIY Acrylic Color Mixing Chart and Canvas Panel Review


all right welcome to my Arteza color
swatching review of the Arteza premium acrylic paints and Arteza canvas panel
so this canvas panel this is an eleven by fourteen and it says that this board
core is made of acid-free recycled paper and the primed acid-free acrylic
titanium gesso is used for the canvas it is actual real canvas on the outside of
this board unlike that this is a student level board I would not use it for a
permanent painting it is very flexible and they do not recommend it for heavy
wet purposes so that being said it feels like a nice canvas panel to do a
swatching board on I also have the box of 14 Arteza acrylic colors and these
are the premiums and each one of these little pouches holds 120 mils which is
about 4 ounces so I have these pouches instead of regular tubes so they have
little twist off tops that have a lock strip on them so I have not even opened
any of these paints yet there we go so 14 colors neat thing about these
pouches they have a clear bottom on them so you can see the color the actual
color not just the printed color however the printed color on the pouch
here because that’s not a clear window really matches so they got that really
well they also have on every one of their pouches the color name of the
paint the light fast if it is transparent translucent or opaque so
this ultramarine blue is a transparent color and it is made from pigment blue
pb29 these scarlet is a light fast color it is a
semi-transparent and it is PR pigment red 21 I will be putting out every
single one of these colors and I’m going to swatch and color mix all of the
colors together I’m not going to make you watch me do that in slow motion this
is going to take me a little while so I am going to be putting this into
fast-forward but to start off with I do want to put some of these colors out so
that’s my first time opening that white the cap feels nice it’s big enough to
put on and take off and it seems to tighten down all the way so I’m not
having a problem with that you just squeeze these are supposed to be a heavy
body style paint it feels very soft and buttery so you can lemon yellow and I’m
just opening every one of these and you see how that little plastic locking ring
pops loose and I you can be pretty pretty accurate with the amount of paint
you squeeze out also so that’s lemon yellow yellow ochre so soft buttery
buttery they do have two metallic colors in here and I’ve put them right in to
the middle of my color swatch board because what I did is I just counted
count it off the number wrote them out and then I use the back of the box and
just wrote the colors down in the order of the back of the box lots of fun but
not necessarily going to be as accurate in a color
color wheel or something like that now these are kind of the pouches being the
way they are they feel a little bit like those little fruit pouches the fruit
sauce pouches that you get for like little kids so I don’t know how durable
they are I haven’t had had it long enough so I’m
on burnt sienna that’s burnt umber burnt sienna burnt sienna nice and smooth now
in in another brand of paint that I happen to like the burnt sienna and the
burnt umber can be a little bit chunky this one doesn’t seem to be this is the
crimson red oh shoot I got crimson and this is crimson red oh
darn okay I’m going to have to move that this is the scarlet red the scarlet red
is much more like a CAD type red it’s an orange II red the crimson red is a blue
red alright so and then burnt umber so this was burnt sienna and this is burnt
umber and apparently there can be air bubbles inside of these pouches so
something else to be aware of that was exciting so I’m basing this on how to do a color
chart that I found on the art Sherpa back in her art quest 2016 her first art
quest she had a how to take all your colors
and make a color chart so if you’re interested in that there will be a link
down below in my more information box I am using a number for cats tongue by the
art Sherpa and silver brush company it’s becoming one of my favorite brushes and
I do not want to use too much water so I just got my brush wet and then I dried
it off on my little towel so first square is not going to be very exciting
it’s just gonna be white I’m gonna work my way across and down and I’m going to
try and mix 50/50 when it is a mixed color so that gets you going on that and
now I’m just going to work my way around my board you okay folks this whole thing took me over
four and a half hours to do I am proud of myself and I hope that you are proud
of me too looking at it from a distance this is really pretty there are so many
different colors and variations all from just 14 colors I have a whole line of
silver here mixed with all of the colors and a line of silver here mixed with all
the colors so I did duplicate but I also did slightly different mixes you know
maybe a little bit more crimson red in this one and a little more Mars black in
that one those types of changes so I have variations nothing is exactly the
same this is a very nice student grade paint it does not cover really well in
the first try the white is very thin the white is very thin it would take
multiple coats of this white to get a real white white white if you’re putting
it over the top of another color so just to let you know that but I would
recommend this as a paint to use that’s very economical it’s you know
twenty-something or 30 something dollars for 14 of these 4 ounce pouches of color
and that’s that’s way better than the price of some of the other student
paints that you can find so check the description box down below I have my 10%
