Our next topic for the month of May is 'liquid acrylic'. Do you know these paints? Do you like it? Since I got to know them, I can't stop using them. They are so great. They are very practical to use, have excellent consistency, and are perfectly pigmented, so painting with them is a pure pleasure.
In addition, they have a beautiful colour palette, mix perfectly with each other and blend well with water. In a few moments, you can paint your project uniformly or water them down and use them almost like watercolour.
Did I convince you? I really hope because these paints are worth it. And finally, another positive feature - these paints look slightly wet after drying, they give a beautiful gloss effect, and in combination with the matt white gesso, as in the case of my project, this effect is perfectly visible.\

Hello creative friends! Finnabair liquid acrylics are great for adding colour to your projects but they can be used to create a realistic faux wood effect for backgrounds. The secret ingredient for this technique is salt!
The liquid acrylic paints are wonderfully transparent when diluted with water- this allows you to build up layer upon layer of colour to create a wood effect with depth. By letting each layer dry completely you can avoid muddying the colours and keep all the details you've built up visible.
