Acrylic paints were invented in about 1950 in Mexico. They became quite popular with the emergence of a society of consumers and the Pop Art movement. Acrylics are the most popular paint today because they are easy to dilute with water, they dry quickly and they are resistant to ageing. Pebeo made its mark in the history of acrylics in 1992 with its Studio brand of paints packaged in plastic tubes. These easy-to-use Pebeo acrylics have attracted a constantly growing number of faithful customers.
