Top Tips for Acrylic Painting – Number 7

Acrylic paints are water based and should not be used over oil paints.

Oil paints, or any other surface that is oily or waxy, will repel the water in the acrylic paint and the acrylic paint will not stick to the surface.

Never try to use acrylic paints on top of oil paints. Be sure to check that any painting surface you use is suitable for acrylic paints. Some painting surfaces are made for oil paints and will not be suitable for painting on with acrylics.
