Acrylic painting a brief introduction
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
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.
