Acrylic painting is done with fast-drying acrylic paints which contain pigments suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. These paints were commercially available from 1950’s and were primarily mineral spirit based paints. The fast drying speed of acrylic paints can be reduced with the use of retarders and these paints are very easy to use for some painters.
