AQYLA is an acronym for Aqua, Alkyd and Tempera. Just like tempera, you can draw regardless of water-based or oil-based. Water-borne alkyd resin has the oil-based character, which you can use with oil paintings. You can paint directly onto metal, glass as well as paper. The pigments pursue natural pure color without using the extender. The surface dries as quickly as the acryl painting, but its interior turns into soil as slow as oil paints so that artists can control however they want from over paint and retouch. It is an environmentally-friendly pigment that does not include any lead, mercury and cadmium with less formaldehyde.
