Acrylic Paints

Acrylic Paints

Acrylic paints are fast-drying, easy to mix, and they produce brilliant, vibrant colours. Acrylic paints are water-soluble, but become water-resistant when dry.

Depending on how much you dilute the paint with water, or modify it with acrylic gels, media, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolour or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics.

Here at Spotlight, buy acrylic paints in individual pots or tubes to get exactly the colour you are after, or why not treat yourself or a loved one to a complete acrylic box set, including its own carry case?

Learn Your Basics on Acrylic Painting at Spotlight

Artists already know that there are different types of painting styles out there. If you are on this page, then you are probably interested in acrylic painting. If you are an experienced painter, you already know what you will be needing. However, if you are a beginner, you might need the lowdown on the basics of acrylic painting. Read on to discover the basics on acrylic painting!

When Should I Choose Acrylic Painting Instead of Oil Painting?

One of the main reasons why artists choose acrylic over oil is simply affordability. However, acrylic paints do come with additional advantages. For example, acrylic paints can be used on almost any surface. They also dry quickly, which could be a big advantage for artists with a lot of inspiration!

Which Brushes Do I Need for Acrylic Painting?

Most brushes for acrylic painting are made from synthetic materials; this also means they could be used on a variety of surfaces. It is also important to have a variety of these brushes, ideally you want several brushes from small to large.

For beginners, it is always advised to buy several different brushes. By doing this, you can get more familiar with the different types and feel which ones suit you best. However, when in doubt, you can always choose one of the most versatile brushes for acrylic painting, the filbert brush.

How Do I Mix My Paints?

As you may know already, most artists choose some of the basic colours and do the mixing themselves. When working with acrylics, it is best to have a dedicated palette for it; this because acrylics can dry incredibly fast.

There is a way to prevent acrylics from drying out before you can use them. Obtain a spray bottle for any store and fill it with some water. If you want to retain the strength of your colour, this might not be the best method, but it is useful if you want to get a watercolour effect with your acrylics.

What Is Gesso?

When you start out with acrylic paints, you may hear the term “gesso” being used by other artists. Gesso is a specific type of white paint mixture. It is used by artists as a base for acrylic painting and oil painting. So, if you are painting on a canvas or linen, be sure to paint it with gesso first; this will give you a much smoother and more resistant surface to paint on.

What Is Glazing?

Beginners might hear the term “glazing” too. Glazing is a method used to seal pencil sketches. To get this glaze, most artists use a gel medium for their projects. Artists can also colour this gel, more specifically by mixing the gel with some of the acrylic colour they wish to use.

When you mix the gel and a colour together, make sure you have your trusty spray bottle on hand. Sometimes the gel and colour can create a mixture that is too sticky. To solve this situation, simply add a little mist to loosen it up a little.

How Do I Create Texture with Acrylics?

Acrylics can create some wonderful texture, but there is a method you must implement to do this. To create more texture, wait until the paint on the canvas is dry. Then, dip your paintbrush in the preferred colour and paint it over the dry paint to create the texture you want to see.

Naturally, you can use certain brushes to create more texture in your artwork too. In our brushes section, you can find a full guide on paintbrushes and discover which ones can create more texture on your artwork.
