Slice of Light acrylic 8" x 8"
I've had a couple questions about using acrylic paint recently and thought it would be helpful to review how I've used acrylic in a way that I find easy to layer and manipulate.
This is another acrylic painting and I thought I'd answer a couple questions regarding materials. I use Liquitex Ultra Matte medium mixed in with the color. It makes the paint a nice consistency to handle and slightly more opaque, so that it dries closer to what I see as fresh paint. This is on Fredrix Portrait acrylic primed linen which is good for either oil or acrylic work. For a palette, I have a Masterson Sta Wet palette, but I also use a dollar store plastic box with a fitted lid that works just as well for smaller set ups. Here's a YouTube link that shows how to make one of your own and I'm sure other handy methods would turn up with a quick search.
