Artists Acrylic Paints were first developed in the 1950’s and have become recognised as possibly the most valuable innovation in paint technology. Their growth in popularity can primarily be associated with their versatility and convenience. Liked by many artists for their quick-drying properties and brilliance of colour, acrylics can also be used to produce great results when either watercolour painting or oil painting techniques are employed.
Artists Acrylics and Student Acrylics – The Main Differences
Artists Acrylic Paints are manufactured with higher quality pigments which are selected for their intensity of colour, colour-fastness and mixing properties. They also contain a higher proportion of resin solids compared with the student varieties.
Student grade acrylic paints are often made with a blend of pigments as opposed to the pure pigments found in artists acrylics. Student acrylics also contain a lower concentration of pigments and a higher level of fillers.
Using Acrylic Paints - Tips for Beginners
Keeping the Acrylic Paint Workable
Thick or thin application of Paint
By mixing the paint with water, a translucent effect can be produced – similar to using watercolours. Acrylic paint is permanent after it has dried, unlike watercolours, and it can be painted over without it blending into the layer of paint below. The colours of each successive was will optically blend with previous washes.
