I am a beginner in acrylics. Used oils 30 years ago. What should I expect of coverage on first appl
Does one build up layers to get good coverage or am I not using enough paint?
If you use a primer first, you will get better coverage. I use one with a stain blocker. It allows paint to adhere better, using less paint. I wrote an article on painting my home. Take a look it will help you.
Some colors are more transparent than others and may require you build up layers. However, low coverage may depend from the quality of the paint you use.
Craft acrylics have very little pigment and a lot of filler. Student grade acrylic are better, but artist quality acrylics are definitely those that have the best coverage - of course the price tag is higher too.
For higher opacity, don't dilute the paint with water, unless it's necessary.
I hope this helps.

I am LOVING this Hubbing, but I'm a raw greeny when it comes to HubPages. In my first month, how many followers should I expect to accrue, and what kind of personal score should I expect, realistically?
