Acrylic Painting for Beginners Step by Step


Acrylics are great! A little like watercolors, a little like oils (thankfully, unlike oils, they are water-soluble and don't require stinky toxic solvents). I love them for the bright, bold colors and their smooth, velvety texture...

There is one little problem with acrylics, though — they dry really fast!

On the one hand, this is good, because you can work fairly fast with your paintings. On the other hand, though, this can be really annoying — especially when acrylic paints dry too quickly on your mixing palette. Thankfully, there is a very easy way to keep your acrylics from drying so fast — and that's what I'm sharing with you in this mini-class! I hope it will make your work with acrylics easier and more pleasant!
