Introduction

This page is an easily accessible reference of 9903 artist paints with pigment information and some hand painted swatches.

I've included here different artist paints, where technical data available. I focus mainly on watercolors, gouaches, poster paints, and acrylics. I prioritize artist quality paints from reliable manufacturers, but some student range also included.

Manufacturers often change their ranges, adding or removing paints, changing recipes. When a full paint range changes, I keep the 'old' range separately. If only a single paint's recipe changes, I simply keep both versions in the list for comparison.
