Top Tips for Acrylic Painting – Number 2

Cover surfaces and yourself!

Acrylic paints are water based, and the brushes are cleaned using water. However, once the paint is dry it forms an impermeable skin.

If some of the paint dries on your hand you will see that it looks like a thin layer of plastic.

Therefore when acrylic paints are dry they can be almost impossible to remove (depending on the surface).

If you are painting be sure to cover any important surfaces that you do not want to have marked with paint.

Acrylic paint will also stick to fabric so it is a good idea to wear painting clothes too!
