Choosing an acrylic white

There are three whites in the Winsor & Newton acrylic ranges. Each has different properties.

  • Titanium White is the whitest and most opaque of the whites, and is recommended for general use.
  • Mixing White is a more transparent white with reduced tinting strength, making it ideal for strong tints, glazing, and toning down colours.
  • Iridescent White captures the unique effect of “light interference” and can be mixed with or painted over colours to create interesting pearlised effects.
