basically I work in acrylics, oils scare me.. although they are my next mountain to climb. sigh
anyway ... I'm not sure how this works, but if anyone wants to help me out I guess you just pm me?

thanks for reading this even if you can't help me.


Why don't you try the water mixable (soluble) oil paints?  They are easy to clean up and good practice. They also have oils that dry in 24 hours now!!

I like acrylics too because of the quick dry time and mediums!

What do you want to know?  I've used watercolor, oil, and acrylic in that order.  Although I must defer to Harlan's wisdom.

That's good advice.  For those who like hard edges there is always masking tape

a small addition to the masking tape advice...if you use blue painter's tape it will come off much easier when painted over and dried....but when you put the tape in place, burnish just the edge with your fingernail so the paint can't bleed underneath....

that is an excellent tip for watercolors but does it work for acrylics too?  If so I need to try it.  I have been taking it off when the acrylic is tacky to make sure I don't F*&( up the art.

yes, it absolutely works like a charm with dried acrylic, I 've used it for years that way...try it!

oh, here's another little hint...when removing the tape, pull it off slowly at a diagonal....it comes of without pulling any paint with it....
