Acrylic Mediums & Additives
The bevy of mediums and modifiers available to an acrylic painter is what makes this category so versatile and fun. While an oil painter needs to be concerned with fat over lean, an acrylic painter can safely build extreme impasto for example without much cause for concern. There is a medium for that.
All sorts of textures and finishes are possible. Extreme modelling effects are tangible. Dull finishes or a glossy wet look is easy to achieve. There is a medium for that. And in most cases, acrylic mediums can be added in any amount to a paint or directly onto a painting. Experiment away!
