Art paint FAQs

What are the different types of paints for art?

At Spotlight, you can find four types of art paint - watercolour, oil, gouache and acrylic art paint. We also have specialty paints that can apply special effects to your artwork like glow-in-the-dark or a honeycomb effect.

What are art paint mediums?

Paint mediums are special additives you can mix with your paint to give it an extra-special quality. Effects like a matte or gloss finish, extra thickness and impasto effects, an increase in fluidity or a crackle texture are all possible. Mediums should not alter the colour of your paint.

Can I use art paints for crafts?

If you are painting a craft project, we recommend using our craft paints that have been designed for this purpose. Craft paints will adhere better to surfaces like fabric, ceramics, brick, wood and leather than art paints will, which are designed for smooth, porous surfaces like paper, card and canvas.
