Tips and suggestions for acrylic paints

* If you are new to acrylic paints, there is one thing you need to practice. exercise! exercise!

* Please be patient. As the saying goes, “exercise is perfect.” This also applies to art.
* Practice with a clear acrylic sheet (available from the manufacturer). You can place the foil on top of the design you are painting and follow the pattern.
* If you don’t want to paint by hand, you need to find the design or transfer it to the object you want to decorate.
* Another suggestion is to practice on glass plates, glass, pots, plastic objects, candles, metal, or other non-porous surfaces that can be easily rinsed if you don’t like the results. Then dry it well and try again.
* When painting on a porous surface such as wood, if it is damaged and you want to paint, dry it completely before painting. (Before proceeding, lightly sand any raised rough areas.)

* Clean the brush regularly. This prevents the colored acrylic sheets paint from drying out on the sprint and makes the brush last longer. (As mentioned above, but worth mentioning again, use only water or detergents specifically for acrylic paints, not thinners, thinners, or mineral drinks.)

* You can apply oil-based paint on acrylic, but you cannot apply acrylic oil-based paint. * There are many acrylic paint brands that are very similar to each other. You can decide whether to prioritize one or the other by trying and using another.
* Acrylic paint dries very quickly. Leave only a small amount on the pallet at a time.
* Brushes used with acrylic paints should be washed with soap and water or detergents made for this purpose immediately after use. Do not let the paint on the brush dry.
* If you think you need to dilute the acrylic paint, dilute it with water and / or an acrylic medium. Do not use turpentine, mineral drinks or acrylic thinner.
* Make sure the item you are decorating is completely free of dust, fingerprints, etc. Before drawing a picture. * Painted candles are beautiful! When painting candles with acrylic paint, use the cheapest, unscented candles. Treat them carefully. If you are not satisfied with the result, rinse the paint, dry the candle and try again. Be sure to apply a clear acrylic sealant to the finished candle, as the acrylic will come off the wax very easily. handling warning!

* Wood elements that need painting should be lightly ground to remove all dust before starting. * Wash glassware, tableware and pottery thoroughly with soap and water. Allow it to dry completely and then wipe it with isopropyl alcohol to remove any dirt or fingerprints.
* Do not use acrylic paint on any part of food or food that comes into contact with your mouth (glasses, plates, etc.).
* If you are painting glass, ceramics or pottery with acrylic paints such as candles, rinse everything immediately and start over. If the paint has been dry for several hours, do not wash it in the sink. Take it out to your garden hose. Acrylic paints that have hardened for some time tend to be small drops of water that can eventually clog the drain.
