Just a decade after the international launch of Acrylic Colours, Camel had introduced the Crylin colours range in 1965. This acrylic-based range of fabric and craft colours was formulated with quality pigments similar to Oil Colours, way ahead of its time.
Mr. Subhash Dandekar, the Chairman Emeritus of Kokuyo Camlin, would regularly meet leading artists like M. F. Husain and Satish Gujaral in those days. They would share their experience and discuss the need to introduce acrylic for the Indian art world. That’s how Camel’s Crylin was replaced with the launch of Artist Acrylic Colours in 1975.
On the specific request of M. F. Husain, the small range of 24 shades welcomed the addition of his favourite Raw Umber shade along with a few mediums for thinning. Now a popular painting medium in India, Camel Artist Acrylic Colours offers artists a massive range of 60 shades.
