Indoor and Outdoor Acrylics
Acrylic paints are useful for indoor and outdoor arts and crafts projects. This paint is very versatile, water based, available in large containers, plastic tubes and plastic bottles, and very affordable. It is great for people who are allergic or sensitive to fumes and toxins associated with oil or petroleum based paints.
The main difference between water and oil is that oil will wear better and last longer. Your choice of paint depends on the project and your allergic reactions. The argument for the different paints seems to be personal.
When I first started to paint with acrylics I did what is typical of painting. I bought the student grade acrylics and recommended tablet paper, made sketches of portraits or landscaping and started painting. However, as you gain knowledge and confidence of painting with acrylics many projects come to mind and you wonder if acrylics can be used.
Types of Acrylics
Any surface will receive acrylics. All types of paper products, wood, metal, clay, concrete, and textiles. If the surface appears in our physical world it can be painted.
Practice and experiment with different types and brands of these tints. You will discover your favorites for the different art and craft projects you are creating. These paints may be used alone or mix and match.
