Things to start Acrylic Painting
Yes, while this is quite an obvious must-have when you are going for acrylic painting, but it is also important for you to ensure that you have the right sizes and shapes of the brushes. Round and pointed brushes, flat brushes and liner brushes are some of the most common types of brushes that we should be having in our kit.
It is important that you have your water container with you all times when you are painting. This is important because you have a lot of tasks with water – as simple as washing the brush or as complex as diluting one color with another color to come up with a new color. And hey, what if the color spilled? Dabbing may also require some amount of water.

When you look around your painter’s world, you will see that white, black, red, orange, blue and yellow are the most common colors.

Quick tips to keep in mind while you are using acrylic paints
Now that we have given you the must have’s lets shift our focus on some quick tips that one should keep in mind while having their creative side on painting with acrylic colors.
Some colors darken when they dry
Yes, this is true. With acrylic colors and all thanks to their nature of color, they usually darken when they dry or when left open in the air. So, always be careful when you are using them, and have them lighter initially, so that they take the original form once dried up.
Sometimes, colors may dry sooner
When you put a lot of paint on the pallet, it may dry sooner – so, our tip here is to take out the paints in parts – as and when you need more. Or, you can have a misting bottle handy, and keep adding that to your acrylic paint to keep them moist.
Pallet knife is your savior
In cases where you are looking at combining two or more colors to make one, we would highly recommend you to use pallet knife, as it will save your hands from getting dirty. Plus, it will also avoid all chances of mixing any other kind of color into your combination. What more, it is known to be the easiest way to mix acrylic colors.
