  1. Top 5 Essential Things You Need to Get Started with Acrylic Painting If you are a beginner to acrylic painting then before you do anything else, it is important that you take the time to gather up the right supplies needed for the job. Whether it’s the work surface you want to paint on, good-quality acrylic kunstnerfarver, the right kinds of paintbrushes, palette knife, or palette, your work space should be equipped with all the requisite materials for acrylic painting. Here’s a checklist of all the most essential things that you will be needing to get started with your first acrylic painting. 1. Acrylic Paint Colors Naturally, the most important thing you require for acrylic painting is the acrylic colors itself. Now acrylic paints are usually offered in two different quality grades, artist and student. You want to go for acrylic kunstnerfarver since these paints offer better performance and results as compared to the student quality acrylic colors. And while artist grade acrylic colors do cost more, you won’t regret the investment in long- term. Just make sure that you are buying your acrylic kunstnerfarver from a good brand. 2. Painting Surface You have an array of choices in terms of work surfaces with acrylic paints, from paper and canvas to even wood. Before you start painting on the surface, though, you’ll need to prepare and prime it. If you wish you can even buy one of those primed canvases that are already prepared for painting. 3. Paintbrushes Paintbrushes come in so many shapes, materials, and sizes that it’s easy to get confused which ones are the most important to buy. To start with, you may want to stick with using synthetic brushes as you find your way about acrylic painting. Not only are these cheaper than the brushes with natural bristles, but these also work well with acrylic paints. If you are not sure which shape brush to buy, go with filbert brushes since these are versatile and are apt for most works. Whatever you do, don’t buy brushes that are too cheap in price as well as in quality. They wouldn’t stand the test of time. 4. Easel The support of a sturdy easel can make painting experience a lot smoother for you. It also offers a safe space to hold your artwork when you are not working on it. Easels come in different types and sizes, choose one that is large and robust enough to hold your work surface and that can also easily fit into the studio or home space where you work in. 5. Palette and Palette Knife Finally, you need a palette where you can lay out and mix your acrylic colors while painting. Acrylic paints have a tendency to dry out pretty fast so you should use the paints in small quantities and keep spraying some water onto the paints at regular intervals to prevent them from drying out. Also keep a palette knife handy to make the color mixing easy. Source: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/top-5-essential-things-you-need-get-started-acrylic-painting-art/
