Emergency Red is an extremely rare high grade acrylic, made in Stuart’s art studio in England. He has supplied us with a very limited quantity and will not be creating any more.
Stuart has bundled the paint with a hand-silkscreened ‘Starving Artist’ t-shirt
This collectable set could be worn and used or seen as an artwork in its own right and accompanies Stuart’s latest art installation Artist Job Centre
We really hope you enjoy it and thank you for your support!
Every purchase will go to supporting a young person to navigate a career in creativity :)
About the paint:
Stuart makes his paints to withstand the demands and challenges of today's contemporary painters. These are not student quality or craft quality paints, These super potent mixes are made to pack a punch on a variety of surfaces and stand the test of time. Meaning your work will stay brilliant and vibrant for centuries.
In the usual open-source spirit, these paints have been designed to play perfectly with almost any other acrylic paint or medium that you might already be using.
Emergency Red can be used on canvas, paper, wood, plaster, fabric, masonry and almost any non-slick, non-oily surface.
