Rosco Scenic Sets are finally here!

We have all wanted smaller bottles of paint to try out a new technique, or try a new color combination. Experimentation is the name of the game when you are a scenic artist. Just how am I going to do that you ask yourself day in and day out. Each Scenic Set contains four 6 oz. jars of Rosco scenic paint or coating materials that scenic artists can use to practice color mixing and shading, experiment with wash and glaze layers, or create different scenic treatments like skies, dirt, and foliage.

Finally sets that will allow you smaller amounts paint or finishes to work with. Compiled by working artists these kits provide a variety of options from primaries to earth tones to shadows. Who doesn't like a shadow? Place your pre-order today to get in the queue.


Rosco's new Scenic Sets feature three different “Primary” sets of Off Broadway paints to work with for color mixing and color theory exploration. There are two sets sets of standard primary colors – a Warm Primary Scenic Set and a Cool Primary Scenic Set. There is also a third Intense Primary Scenic Set that swaps out the red with Magenta for creating more vivid colors. Combining magenta and blue, for example, produces a much brighter purple than a red/blue combination does.


There are certain elements that are found in almost every scenic design: skies (at dawn/dusk, midday, and night), foliage, dirt/ground and, of course, the always popular, painting wood to look like a different type of wood. We developed three additional sets to help practice these popular techniques: the Earth & Wood Scenic Set, the Skies Scenic Set and the Foliage Scenic Set. No matter if you’re just learning these techniques and need the extra practice, or if you’re a seasoned professional looking to try a different approach to these common scenic treatments – these three Scenic Sets are excellent tools for testing, practice and scenic exploration.


Last, but certainly not least, we have the Shade & Shadows Scenic Set and the Clear Layers Scenic Set. These two sets enable painters to experiment and practice with the fundamental techniques of shading, and how to create washes and glazes. The Shade & Shadows Scenic Set provides four different shading colors, because when it comes to creating shadows and areas of shade in your scenery – there are so many other tones to consider besides black. The Clear Layers Scenic Set was designed to give scenic artists a chance to explore Rosco's Clear Acrylic Glazes and experiment with thicker layers of color by tinting Rosco FlexBond and CrystalGel scenic coating products.


Pro-Tip: When mixing colors, it is a good idea to have some neutral white paint on-hand to lighten the hues you’ve created with the paints found in these kits. Our panel of scenic artists and professors advised us not to include white paint in any of the Scenic Sets, stating that “white is easy to get, it’s the colors we really need.” We recommend pairing our Scenic Sets with a quart of Off Broadway #5350 White scenic paint.

We also recommend the excellent Rosco Iddings Scenic Liner Brushes.

Pandemic Availability Notice

Please Note: Due to unprecedented raw material and component shortages for finished goods throughout our industry, lead times for items that aren't currently in stock are longer than normal and cannot be guaranteed at present. Equipment needed by a firm date must be noted at time of order. While VLS cannot guarantee delivery by those dates, we will work with our suppliers to do everything possible to meet deadlines.

Same Day Shipping Cutoff time
(Due to Pandemic-related availability issues, this policy is currently suspended)

Online orders received by noon Eastern time typically ship the same day. If your delivery due date is critical please note your due date in the order messages at checkout, and then contact us.

Why Noon? Well, while we stock quite a few items in our warehouse, many items we have dropshipped by our vendors. They need time to process the order, so to ensure that we can get the order to the vendor and give them enough time to ship it out the same day, we need to get the order to them as early as possible in the day.
