Top Tips for Painting with Acrylic Paints – Number 9

Using thick paint

Try applying acrylic paint thickly to get an effect similar to oil painting. Applying acrylic paints thickly will give a textural oil paint look.

Use it for foreground definition

The closer a part is to the foreground of the picture the more detail you can see. So put more detail in the sections in the foreground of your painting to help this illusion.

One way to do this is to use the paint thickly in the foreground of a picture for texture and increase the detail. The painting will look more interesting too.
