Is a unique vinyl acrylic paint, packaged in concentrated form.

It is designed to be diluted with water, at least 1:1 and more.

With such tremendous extendibility, Supersaturated offers the widest range of effects possible while being extremely economical to use.

Supersaturated achieves vibrant, opaque color fields on many different surfaces.

It also creates bright, translucent washes where the color remains similar in intensity to aniline dyes, without the health hazards.

Supersaturated Roscopaint is formulated with a unique binder that gives it superior adhesion, durability, and flexibility even on difficult surfaces like Rosco Projection Screens and Rosco Dance Floors.

It can also be used as a tint in other water-based paints, binders and coating.


 The paint can be used direct from the pot for maximum obliteration, but they are really designed to be diluted at least 1:1 with water.

They can be further diluted up to 15:1 to provide watercolour washes and dye effects. If you are heavily diluting the paint but want to use it on a difficult surface we advise that Rosco Neutral Base is added to reinforce the binding power.

Indeed Neutral Base can be added to Rosco Supersaturated to paint items such as brass door furniture where most paints would fail to adhere.

When used to paint cloths, Rosco Supersaturated has the advantage over other paints in that it remains supple allowing the cloth to be rolled or folded without cracking. 


Available in 32 artists' colors that are easily intermixed or combined with other Rosco Scenic Paints.
