What is Acrylic Paint?

Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. Acrylic paints are water-soluble, but become water-resistantwhen dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water, or modified with acrylic gels, mediums, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media. Acrylic paint is typically used for crafting, or in art classes in schools because it does not require any chemicals, and rinses away with just water. It also is less likely to leave a stain on clothes than oil paint.

In this lesson, you will learn the materials use on starting acrylic painting like brushes, acrylic paints, canvasses and other needed materials.

Materials needed:

Acrylic Paints – 5 limited colors
Artist Brushes – Different brushes
Stretched Canvas – You can also use card board or thicker than a paper
Water – in a small jar to thin the paint
Color Palette – where you mix the paints, you can use paper plate or paper palette
Patience – you need more patience to start, since it’s not always easy at the beginning but you can do it!
