Why Use Acrylic Paints:Many leading contemporary artists use acrylics, as they possess very different properties compared to oil or watercolor paint. Fast drying, acrylics lose their solubility; this is a great advantage to painters who wish to work quickly. Because of the faster drying time, a painting which might have taken weeks to accomplish in oil color can be completed in one session with acrylics.Acrylic colors are classed as the “new” painting medium as they have only been around for a few decades. The versatility of acrylics is built into the formulation of the paint, giving acrylics excellent adhesion properties allowing the paint to stick to surfaces from concrete to wood. Acrylics have the flexibility to move with the surface, expanding and contracting while still maintaining their integrity. Thinning with water allows watercolor type techniques to be achieved without having to choose specially sized (prepared) surfaces, while using the color straight from the tube allows oil-like impasto marks to be created without the drawback of long drying times or worrying about “fat over lean” principles.
