For the Beginner:

They are one of the most popular paints for artists and crafters and great for everyday projects. Acrylic paint is made much like any other paint as it is a simple combination of ground pigment and a binding agent. Since they are water based, they are easy to clean out of brushes and dry faster than oil paint does.
