More On Acrylics...

In the world of art, acrylics are the new players on the scene.  They have only been around for about 50 years, but have already proven to be a favorite medium for many painters. Acrylics dry incredibly fast, allowing for many layers to be created on surfaces quickly and easily.  This quality can be both an advantage and a hindrance. Acrylic mediums are available that slow drying times, making acrylics behave a bit more like oils.  Acrylics dry to a plastic surface that is water-proof.  They can also be thinned and used like watercolor paints.
