Information You Need to Know About Acrylic Paint - Brief Guide


Are Acrylic Paint Good For Painting In 2021?


Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion and plasticizers, silicon oils, defoamers, stabilizers, or metal soaps. 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, mediums, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor, a gouache, or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media.


Why Should We Choose Acrylic Paint Instead Of Other Oil Based Medium?

Acrylic painters can modify the appearance, hardness, flexibility, texture, and other characteristics of the paint surface by using acrylic mediums or simply by adding water. Watercolor and oil painters also use various mediums, but the range of acrylic mediums is much greater. Acrylics paints have the ability to bond many different surfaces and mediums. It can be used to modify their binding characteristics. Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas, and a range of other materials.


Some Painting Techniques That Can Give Great Results While Painting On Hard Surfaces

Acrylic artists' paints may be thinned with water or acrylic medium and used as washes in the manner of watercolor paints, but unlike watercolor, the washes are not rehydratable once dry. For this reason, acrylics do not lend themselves to the color lifting techniques of gum arabic based watercolor paints. Instead, the paint is applied in layers, sometimes diluting with water or an acrylic medium to allow layers underneath to partially show through. Using an acrylic medium gives the paint more of a rich and glossy appearance, whereas using water makes the paint look more like watercolor and has a matte finish.

Acrylic paints with gloss or matte finishes are common, although a satin (semi-matte) sheen is most common. Some brands exhibit a range of finishes (e.g. heavy body paints from Golden, Liquitex, Winsor & Newton, and Daler-Rowney); Politec acrylics are fully matte.] As with oils, pigment amounts and particle size or shape can affect the paint sheen. Matting agents can also be added during manufacture to dull the finish. If desired, the artist can mix different media with their paints and use topcoats or varnishes to alter or unify sheen.
