Do you know acrylic paint is most effective and versatile when used with Acrylic mediums?


Here are ten things to try with your acrylic painting to expand your practice:


1. No additives -  Acrylic Paints are great to use straight from the tube. 


It's easy to build texture this way, and most acrylic paints dry to a semi-gloss finish.


2. Gel Mediums (Gel) – Gel Mediums serve the same purpose as liquid mediums but have a thicker consistency.


3. Impasto – Impasto medium comes with an excellent, thick consistency designed to produce very thick textures without the risk of the paint cracking as it dries. 


4. Modelling Paste - Modelling Past is used to create texture on the surface before you begin painting; Modelling paste can mix it with paint.


5. Texture Gels – Mont Marte has a great range of texture gels which are super fun and easy to use, like an impasto.
