This fine range of Jo Sonja's® products includes paints and mediums perfectly and combines traditional quality with new technologies to produce a colour system that gives artists the benefits of versatility and longevity.
Jo Sonjas ® Decorative Painting System was developed by Jim Cobb (Director of Chroma) and the renowned folk artist, Jo Sonja Jansen. Both of these artists were seeking a new colour system that would enable them to work more creatively. The latest technology that Chroma had to offer and the knowledge of the artists were combined to create a system which enabled the decorative artist to take advantage of heritage techniques and to develop new techniques for the future. Jo Sonjas ® soon found favour as many artists worldwide discovered the impressive qualities of the range.
The decorative paint has a beautiful, velvet matte finish associated with traditional gouache. Unlike gouache, they are water-resistant and will not chip or crack when cured. Excellent lightfastness. Safe, water-based and clean up easily with soap and water.
We are certainly delighted to showcase Jo Sonjas® products here at Pegasus!
