Versatility – Acrylics are the most versatile medium available to artists, providing rich possibilities for style, texture and finishing. Acrylic paint adheres to the widest range of substrates and can be used to achieve any desired effect, from the lightest wash and transparent glaze to the thickest impasto.
Working time: Fast or slow! – One of the traditional advantages of acrylics is the quick drying time, which allows artists to overpaint and easily build up multiple layers in a short session. However, new formulations and techniques have been developed that dramatically increase the drying time, giving the artist full control over the process.
Safety – Acrylic paints and mediums are water-based and essentially non-toxic, requiring no solvents, making it easy to maintain a non-flammable, fumes-free studio environment.
