Acrylic Paint

Acrylic paint is one of the most popular paints for beginners, professionals, artists, and those looking to get started in painting. Also used in art classes, crafting, pouring, fluid, ceramics and more and are much like any other paint in that it is made from a simple combination of ground pigment and a binder. They consist of pigment mixed in a polymer emulsion, when this emulsion dries it creates an bendable layer leading to a finish that's resistant to water. We offer paint that is more versatile, permanent and lightfast in a wide range of opacities for acrylic painting.

Acrylic Painting Tips: Acrylic paint dries very quickly when applied in thin coats as compared to oil paint. This allows the use of other media on top of the dried surface and can be used in high gloss or matte finishes.
To slow the drying time, use an extender which is a medium that slows drying time while increasing the "open time" of artist paints. This allows you to blend colors and edges with ease. Jerry's Artarama carries a large selection of artist acrylic paints from leading brands such as SoHo Acrylics, GOLDEN Acrylics, Liquitex Acrylics, Amsterdam Acrylics, Old Holland, Sennelier, Van Gogh, Winsor & Newton and more on sale.

It is always highly recommended to use better brushes for your art and paintings. Better acrylic painting brushes are very important in your final outcome to insure a better experience and achieve a better desired result.


Is Acrylic Paint Water Based?: Yes, acrylic paint is water based and easier to wash out of brushes and most art materials. It contains color pigments mixed in a polymer emulsion that acts as the binder. While it is still wet, you can thin it down and clean using water making it easier to work with. Once dry, acrylic paint forms a water-resistant, flexible film that is permanent and durable.
