Acrylic paint is a fast drying type of paint that is popular among many types of artists. When you use acrylic paint, you should use no more than about 30% of water if you’re wanting to thin it out. You can even, once the paint is dry, use oil paints over the acrylic paint. You can use both in your painting. Acrylic paints are good for crafts. When painting, it is typically recommended to use dark to light colors first. If it is your first time using acrylic paint, it is pretty easy to work with and is a good option for beginners to use.
Personally, I like acrylic painting. I paint with it more than really any other paint. I find it easier to use and you can add things that are easier to cover up with for adding texture. Overall acrylic painting can be a good way to take your mind off things and an easy starting point.
