Acrylic

Acrylic is a water based paint which offers the textures of oil. It is a very fast drying medium and this is welcomed by those artists who wait in frustration for oil paint to dry before proceeding with the next stage of a piece of work. However, for those same artists who have enjoyed the 'workability' of blending oils, working with acrylics is a race against time, although retarding gels can be added.
