Acrylic Painting is done with acrylic paints which are fast-drying ones and contain a pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. They are mainly water-resistant and do not lose their shine quickly like oil paints. They were commercially available from the 1950ís and were primarily spirit based paints. The fast evaporation of water from the acrylic paint can be reduced with the help of retarders. Acrylic paintings are very different from oil and water paintings
