ACRYLIC PAINTING?

Hello dear, I will start to paint acrylic in the next time :ob - I think it will be very fine to combine boot worlds :rock: :rock: - but I don't have experience in ACRYL, so I will ask, what you think about GOLDEN OPEN ACRYLICS? Or are other colors very fine? OPEN ACRYLICS I like, because these color are drying very slow (10 hours up to 4 days), they are very rich with pigments and the pigments are very mixable. But the price is shooking :shock: - between somth. about 23/24€ for titan-white until over 40€ for some red colors - 236ml tins). :? What you think? c:! c:! c:! - OK I CAN COMBINE IT WITH CHEAP COLORS too, CHEAP COLORS for the underground or for structures. And good Colors for the last Layer :D and for eyecatching details.

I think also, that VERVE + ACRYLIC PAINTING would be can made some unique and stunning ARTWORKS :D :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock:

Re: ACRYLIC PAINTING?

Sorry. I cannot recommend anything but it is very good information to know about the Golden open acrylics. I started with acrylics one year ago. It was suggested to me instead of oils because we have a baby and oil's smell is not so good to spread through the apartment. After little time I was totally disapointed because if you have common acrylics the dry process is very very fast :( I don´t think that acrylics are good for beginners as I am.. And that's why I was looking for a nice software and that's why I am here and use Verve :) So end is good all is good.. Nevertheless if I find more useful acrylics I would like to start my "natural" painting again.. Let me know if you find a good solution for your question.

Thank you for your topic Zero. :beer:

Re: ACRYLIC PAINTING?

Hello all,
One solution also could be water miscible oil, did you think of this ? because you don't need turp, you can thin and clean with water.

I tried "Artisan" from Winsor & Newton and "Duo Aqua" from Holbein. As a complete beginner, i found them easier to handle than usual acrylics and liked the typical oil rendering ! Because it's oil after all, they just managed to change some chemistry detail. But I did not try Golden "open" acrylics so i can't compare.

Re: ACRYLIC PAINTING?

I have buyed some days ago GOLDEN OPEN ACRYLS :roll: :roll: :roll: ooops... they are expenisve yes, but very rich of pigments, and they will dry very slow, like oil - so they are really fluid, like VERVE? .. I will take them only very thin as the last finish :ob and also for glazings for digital-prints in the next time :D

And I hope, that I can get some nice ARTWORKS maybe with VERVE + GOLDEN OPEN ACRYLICS .. I will share it, my first c:!

ok, I spend also some cheaper colors for the undergrounds or for mixing or for not so important image-areas :D and I will see also the difference between cheap and expensive colors?

Re: ACRYLIC PAINTING?

OOooooohhhh, if you wanted to and had the proper equipment, you could film some of it, to study reality with good stuff, you know! :bounce:
I don't want to cause you any grief, though, because that might be tricky, I don't know?
A simple 1 or 2 min clip would be awesome! :)
