Acrylic Paintings

Acrylic Paintings and Their Uniqueness

Acrylic painting has become one of the most popular painting techniques, especially over the past few decades. The most interesting aspect about acrylic paintings is the fact that acrylic colors are very brilliant, and with their uniquely smooth gloss they appeal to many painters. Acrylic paint is also easy to handle, not to mention the fact that it is highly resistant. Acrylic is a paint that dries quickly, and it can be used for various techniques, including glazing and texturing. Considering all these aspects, as well as the fact that acrylic paint is water-soluble and almost odourless, many artists opt for it.

What are The Differences between Acrylic and Oil Painting?

Some artists make the most of both types of paint, but there are certain differences between acrylic and oil paint. First of all the vehicle and binder of oil paint is a drying oil, generally linseed oil. On the other hand in the case of acrylic paint the vehicle is water for the suspension of acrylic polymer. There is also a critical difference in the drying times, with oils allowing for more time both for blending the colors, and also to apply glazes. Oil is relatively slow drying when compared to acrylic. Having said that, the fact that water evaporates quickly from acrylic paint can be lessened slightly by using acrylic retarders. Additionally, oil paint has a considerably higher pigment load than acrylic paint.
