Acrylic Art is Red Hot
Why paint with acrylic?
The modern acrylic paint is relatively inexpensive, water soluble, light fast (will not fade over time) and can be diluted with water and other diluents. When diluted with enough water the end result is a water color application.The paint does not smell, is not oily, dries quickly and dries even faster with a hair drier. Oil paint can be applied on top of acrylic. Acrylic can be applied to many surfaces including paper, canvas, wood, particle board, ceramic, plastic and others.
