I've had acrylic paints lying around for ages and finally tried them out today:
I really have no idea what I'm doing yet with the paints. Mysteries I need to solve:
- What's the best way to mix paint? I used my brush but it seems like there must be a better way.
- How can you get a good gradient? There's the problem of mixing a consistent set of colors and then the problem of blending on the canvas.
- How do you paint sharp edges? I originally intended for the thing that became the sun to have a sharp edge but it looked horrible so I changed tacks.
I do like that they don't stink, clean up easily, and dry quickly.
