Acrylic Painting

Painting is one of the most rewarding ways to artistically express oneself, and starting that odyssey by learning how to use acrylic paint is a smart decision because the medium is flexible and durable. Using acrylic paint is considerably more affordable than working with oils--a significant boon for the beginning painter.

Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint containing pigment suspension in acrylic polymer emulsion. Acrylic paints are water-soluble, but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water or modified with acrylic gels, media, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media.

Beginners must ensure choosing the right brush for the job, therefore prior knowledge of the painting techniques and correct suggestions such as the use of large brush possible - because of the fast drying time, using a large brush will speed up the working time (and cut down on aforementioned tantrums).
