Acrylic colours are fast-drying colours made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. They are water-soluble, but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water, or modified with acrylic gels, mediums, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media. The appearance, hardness, flexibility, texture, and other characteristics of the paint surface can be modified by using acrylic mediums or simply by adding water. Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas and a range of other materials.
My experiments with acrylic colours here at The Cuckoo's Nest have resulted in wonderful paintings that look life-like and real. I have also tried my hand at knife work in some paintings to enhance the relief features like mountains, rivers etc. Have a look at the acrylic art works in the gallery below and share your thoughts.
