Q&A (4)
Q What series are these paints?
A

These paints are not priced in series numbers as they are beginner/student quality. In the interest of being cost effective, beginner/student quality paints are often made by mixing more economic pigments in order to create ‘hues’ that mimic more expensive pigment.

Q What brush should I use to paint acrylic?
A

The versatility of acrylic paint means it can be applied in various ways, using either brushes, foam, palette knives and even sponges. The best kind of brush to use depends on the desired outcome. A soft synthetic brush for example will work well for a smooth application of paint, whereas a hard bristled synthetic or hog brush will create a more pronounced brush stroke. Brushes with good ‘spring’ are ideal for use with acrylic paint as they have the strength required to lift the paint.

Q What are the benefits of painting acrylic as oppose to oil or watercolour?
A

All three types of painting offer very different experiences. Acrylic paint is a versatile media, available in varied forms and viscosities. It can be applied onto many different surfaces and with a variety of mediums, making experimenting with acrylic both easy and satisfying. It is also water mixable and fast drying, which presents the artist with a fuss-free approach to painting.

Q What surface does acrylic paint work best on?
A

Acrylic paint works best on cotton or linen stretched canvases or canvas board, as these will offer a resistant surface for thick/heavy applications of paint. If you are looking to paint on paper, a paper designed specifically for acrylic painting would suit best. However, theoretically speaking you can still paint directly onto any heavyweight paper as acrylic paint is water based and will not “sink” like oil paints might. Acrylic paint can also be painted onto surfaces such as wood, plastic, metal or brick, just so long as the surface is primed or prepared where suitable.
