School Art Projects: Acrylics


Acrylic colours are a quick-drying paint based on 100% acrylic resin (a synthetic dispersion). When applying acrylic colours thinly and/or thinned with water, a watercolour effect can be obtained. Usually, however, acrylic colours are applied thickly and the result appears like that of oil colours. Many artists prefer acrylic colours because acrylic colours dry much quicker than oil colours and are practically odourless. Click here for Top 10 Frequently Asked Questions About Acrylics
