ARTIST-TESTED & APPROVED

Researched, developed, and tested for over 3-1/2 years, these cadmium-free colors are the newest to perform with the richness of natural cadmium paints. In a blind test, we asked artists to compare the tone, tint, and opacity of the cadmium free colors to their cadmium counterparts, and the results were clear. In addition to using a product with fewer health and environmental concerns, the majority of respondents felt the new paints equaled or exceeded the quality and performance of the natural cadmium colors.

WHAT ARTISTS HAD TO SAY

IN A BLIND TEST, WE ASKED ARTISTS TO COMPARE THE TONE, TINT, AND OPACITY OF THE CADMIUM-FREE COLORS TO THEIR CADMIUM COUNTERPARTS, AND THE RESULTS WERE CLEAR. IN ADDITION TO USING A PRODUCT WITH FEWER HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS, THE MAJORITY OF RESPONDENTS FELT THE NEW PAINTS EQUALED OR EXCEEDED THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE NATURAL CADMIUM COLORS.

“Great pigment potency and covering capacity – the colors are a real stimulus on my palette. I love how solid and permanent each brushstroke is when applied to the canvas. The cad-free formula makes exposure to oil paint worry-free.” ~ Tony Stencel, tonystencel.net

“I’m passionate about working in oils. The Utrecht brand has always been a ‘go to’ for me. The new cadmium-free series of oils is exciting both because of the tones and because of Utrecht’s commitment to value, safety, and the working artist.” ~ Mia Tarducci, miatarducci.com

“I removed cads from my palette a few years back over environmental concerns. Utrecht Artists’ Oil Colors are produced here in the U.S. where quality control is superior. I am super glad to see a viable alternative.” ~ Jim Serrett, jimserrett.com

“Utrecht Cadmium-Free Acrylics deliver! They offer rich, vibrant colors and a soft, buttery consistency that holds its shape. All this, plus outstanding quality — and they’re made in the USA.” ~ Tanya Lozano, tanyalozanoabstractart.com

“I’ve used Utrecht oils and acrylics for years, and the new cadmium-free paints perform just as well as the cadmiums. The pigment quality and how the colors mix and interact on the surface are central to the success of my work. I’m also impressed that Blick is being environmentally responsible and offering healthier choices for artists.” ~ Heather Pieters, heatherpieters.com
