    Acrylic Paint, Acrylic Mediums and Acrylic Painting Kits

    Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint containing pigment suspended in an acrylic polymer emulsion – thus, a water based paint, as opposed to slow drying oil paints.

    Acrylic Paint, first made commercially available in the 1950s, has gained enormous popularity over the years. With its ability, depending on the Acrylic Medium used, to resemble anything from watercolour to impasto oil paint, Dala Acrylic Paint is a uniquely versatile medium.

    The main difference between acrylic paints and oil paints is in the drying time. The slow drying aspect of oil can be seen as an advantage for certain painters, but can act as an impediment to artists, trying to work fast. Acrylics also make the storage of artworks a lot easier, as work can be stored almost immediately after a painting session.

    Oil Paint and Oil Paint Mediums

    Oil paint is a type of slow-drying paint that consists of particles of pigment suspended in a drying oil, commonly linseed oil. The viscosity of the paint may be modified by the addition of a solvent such as turpentine or white spirit, and varnish may be added to increase the glossiness of the dried oil paint film.
