Acrylic Painting

Acrylics for artists and studentsAcrylics are very different to oils and watercolours as they have a faster drying time allowing work to be completed relatively quickly. Acrylic paints have excellent adhesion properties allowing them to stick to a variety of surfaces.  They move with the surface, expanding and contracting while still maintaining their integrity. 

Acrylics can be watered down and used for watercolour techniques, or they can be used in combination with a number of mediums to create differing effects.  There are printing mediums to convert the acrylics to screen printing and block printing inks, shimmering iridescent mediums to make pearlescent colours, additives to create texture, primers to prepare surfaces for painting, and varnishes to protect the finished work.
