Seven Simple Techniques For Acrylic Painting

by Annette Labedzki

Acrylic Painting is a contemporary form of Synthetic Painting Medium, and is associated with the bright & the bold style of art forms. An Acrylic Paint can be diluted in water, while becoming water-resistant upon drying. With the right Layering Techniques, Acrylic Paints bring about the subtleness of both, Watercolors and Oil Paints, in a quick drying medium. With the right Acrylic Painting Techniques, Acrylic Paints can adhere to a variety of surfaces and have enormous potential when put to the right, creative uses. An additional quality of Acrylic Paints is their permanence. Acrylic Paintings are not susceptible to Yellowing and Hardening with age. All this makes these Fast Drying Acrylic Paints more alluring than the long drying Oil Paints.

The indispensable seven simple Techniques for Acrylic Paintings are:

Watercolor Techniques. Identical to Watercolors, Acrylic Paints work as a brilliant transparent medium. However, unlike Watercolors, the advantage with Acrylic Paints is that they do not disturb the existing film of paint.

Blending of Opaque Colors. As is evident from the name, Opaque Colors make the paint layers non-transparent and therefore, blending these colors well is very tricky. Colors are blended by initially painting each shade side by side on your support. A clean, Soft Brush is used to blend them. For further blending, move the Brush around until the desired hue is mixed.

Sgraffito. This Acrylic Painting Technique is a Scratching Technique, and the term, Sgraffito, was coined from an Italian word "Graffiare," which means to scratch. As the meaning of the name suggests, Sgraffito is done by scratching into the surface of Wet Paint to create interesting patterns. Sharp tools, (Knives, Screwdrivers, and Pointed Brush Tips) are used for the purpose.

Preventing Paint from Drying. To implement this Acrylic Painting Technique, you spray a light mist of water over the layer of Acrylic Paints on the Canvas.

Creating Fluid in Acrylic Paint. This Acrylic Painting Technique involves adding water to the Acrylic Paints, just as you do with Watercolors. The Water-Acrylic Paint ratio depends upon the thickness and the requirement of the Glaze. Opaque Painting requires more paint and less of water, whereas the transparent Glaze needs more water.

Using Squeegee. This Acrylic Painting Technique also helps in creating interesting designs. Pour some paint on the support and smear it on to the Canvas with the help of a Squeegee.

Pouring Paint. This is an innovative Acrylic Painting Technique. In this, the required quantity of paint is poured directly on to the surface of the Canvas. The Canvas is then tilted to mix the paint. Here, blending takes place naturally.

Acrylic Painting For Beginners: Everything you need to know before painting your first acrylic masterpiece (Acrylic Painting Toturials Book 1)
by Michael PraemSearch for Michael Praem

I?ve always loved art. From the time I was a child, growing up and watching Bob Ross paint happy little clouds, the joy of creating something beautiful with my hands has inspired me. So I dabbled; first in watercolors, then in oils, then in acrylics, and grew to love painting even more. I would always get asked, though, about the differences in types of paints, or the types of brushes to use, even what to do with the painting when it was finished. So I decided to create an instruction book. It?s my belief that everyone who has the desire can make beauty when they set brush to canvas, and if that?s what you?re wanting to do, then that?s what we?re going to do!

A little preview of what we?re going to cover in this book. First, I?m going to explain the difference between acrylics and oils - both are worthy artists? tools, but we?re sticking solely with acrylics here. I?m also going to explain the types of acrylic paints; the types of brushes and creative non-brush alternatives (limited only by your imagination!); various types of canvases; and some tools of the trade. I?ll explain about the color palette and mixing colors, and we?ll have a few practices using these techniques. Finally, we?ll discuss preserving your painting, so you can keep it fresh and able to show off.

By the end of this instructional eBook, you?ll have the basics down, and all that?s left will be to take what you?ve learned and make some amazing acrylic paintings of your own!

Compared to other types of painting, painting with acrylics is a relatively new thing. Acrylic compounds weren?t really invented until the beginning of the twentieth century, and even then, they were primarily used in industry. In the 1930s, artists began to experiment with acrylic painting, but it didn?t really take off until the 1950s, when the first water-based acrylic paints were introduced onto the market.

There are certain techniques that you will need to learn in order to be able to paint successfully with acrylic paints ? this is particularly important if you are already used to painting with other mediums. Once you have mastered the techniques, however, you will be able to produce quality works of art that you will be happy to show off to friends and family.

The book will also cover other issues to do with painting with acrylics, such as how to choose a subject, mix your colors, and create shade and tints on your painting. Much of it you will only really get to grips with as you put the tips into practice, but it is still useful to have a strong idea of what to expect.

Before you know it, provided you put the practice in, you will be producing paintings that you are proud to hang on the walls of your home.
