5 Essential Acrylic Painting Tips to Keep in Mind to Paint Like a Pro!

Did you know that acrylic paint is one of

the most multi-purpose coloring

mediums that you’ll ever work with? The

consistency of these paints can be

modified in a number of ways. For thick

applications, they can be made to work as

oil paints. For thinner applications as in

watercolors, they can be thinned out with

water to get the job done. From brushes

and rollers to painting knives, you can

paint with an acrylic paint as and how

you want with complete creative liberty.

The possibilities are limitless when you

use acrylic paint. It’s worthwhile to learn

more about this incredible painting

medium and the little tricks and tips that can help you get better at it.

1.

Acrylic paints dry out very quickly, and once they’ve dried out, it’s difficult to get them workable again. If you’re using

an acrylic paint tube, make sure that you squeeze out the paint only as much as you need, else you may end up wasting

the excess paint. Have a mister ready on hand so that you can frequently sprinkle some water over the paint and keep it

moist.

2.

Take care to keep your brushes wet too at the time of painting. Don’t let the acrylic paint dry out on your brushes. The

paint will dry and ruin the bristles of your precious paintbrushes. Keep the brushes soaked in water at the time of

painting.

3.

Because acrylic paints dry out so quickly, you may face a tough time when blending together two or more colors. A good

solution for this problem would be to use some damp paper for mixing the colors, that should give you more time for

blending.

4.

Acrylic paints have a major advantage over watercolors when it comes to layering. Watercolor paint is water-soluble

even when it’s dry. This makes it difficult to apply layers of watercolor paints and render different layering effects. On

the other hand, acrylic paint on drying becomes insoluble and water-resistant film. You can easily apply more layers of

paint on the top of acrylic paint without ruining the layer beneath. Whether it’s glazing or scumbling, you can

experiment with several layering techniques with acrylic paint.

5.

Use acrylic paints for applying washes over your canvas prior to painting. Watercolor washes are likely to get disturbed

with just a hint of water. Whereas, with acrylic paint the wash will remain as it is and continue to serve as the perfect

background for any painting you wish to make on your canvas. Mix enough water with the acrylic paint to make sure

that it’s fluid and malleable enough to be easily applied as a wash.
