The joy of acrylic paint is often found in multiple layers. And since it is fast drying, this is easy to do. The lovely transparency of colour laid down in layers is a wonderful dynamic. Add texture to that as well, and the creative sparks really start to fly. All acrylic paint is essentially glue, and so the acrylic transparent mediums can have items such as sand, poppy seeds, fibers – just whatever captures your interest – added. After adding a layer of texture, try flowing wet paint over it to make the texture stand out even more! And yes, we were playing with this in the recent Wet & Wild course. It was a great week with lots of creative paintings happening! Here’s the video of paintings created by my students at this course – enjoy!
