Acrylic painting a brief introduction

Quick overview

I used to work a lot with acrylic paints a few years back.
Here I would like to present some of the lessons I learned during the process:

  • A palette is great for mixing paints. But an old porcelain or ceramic plate works just as well.

  • There is a wide choice of painting surfaces available: from canvas and wood, stone and glass to paper.

  • As well as brushes, you can also use knives and spatulas to apply the paint.

  • To clean the brushes, just rinse them thoroughly in water. But take care: Dont let the paint dry on them.

  • When applying paint, it appears lighter than it will later when dry.

  • Acrylic paints dry much faster than oil paints. But be careful: They are only touch-dry and smudge-proof, but not dry all the way through. Make sure you avoid surface-to-surface contact when storing acrylic paintings.
