What is Acrylic paint?

Fast-drying and water based, Acrylic paint is comprised of a pigment suspended in an acrylic co-polymer binder. This is then applied to a support such as a canvas. The pigment fixes to the support upon evaporation of the water, producing a slight colour change in the process. Acrylic paint dries to a water-resistant, flexible finish, making it the ideal medium for a number of craft purposes including screen printing and model making.

All colours can be thinned with water to pale washes, or used directly from the pot or tube. The quick drying properties of the range enable the artist to work speedily, and a hairdryer may be used to further accelerate the drying process.

Winsor & Newton Galeria Acrylic colours are fully intermixable and suitable for interior and exterior use, making them the perfect medium for all art and craft projects. Different textures and effects can be created with the range by adding one or more the range of Galeria Mediums.

Once completed and dry, a thin layer of varnish may be applied, to protect and preserve artwork. Varnish is available in satin, matt and gloss finishes.

Acrylic paints are water-based, so brushes used to apply the paint need only mild soap and water to clean them after use. This video illustrates how simple it is to clean and care for acrylic paint brushes.
