A la prima Is using neither water nor mediums as diluents, the saturated paints can be manipulated on the surface. Technique remains workable on the surface for several minutes, allowing for wet in wet blending and textural manipulation. Splatter, pull or drip
Extrusion Is drawing lines with acrylic paint. Is ideal for incorporating linear details and text into a painting. Is great for creating relief textures.
Blending Can be done with acrylic on the palette, or directly on the support using a variety of methods. Is most effective when completed rapidly broken colour can be achieved by applying raw colour progressively varying tones directly onto the surface produces an optical colour blend with a distinctive impasto texture
Impasto The word "impasto" is Italian in origin; in that language it means "dough" or "mixture"; the verb "impastare" translates variously as "to knead", or "to paste". In English, the borrowed Italian word impasto most commonly refers to a technique used in painting. Where paint is laid on an area of the surface (or the entire canvas) very thickly, usually thickly enough that the brush or painting-knife strokes are visible.
Staining Can be achieved by applying, then quickly removing acrylic colours using a lightly dampened sponge.
Feathering (or Dry brush) Relies on the drying speed of the paint on an absorbent ground. is created when a dry brush is used to pull paint across a dry surface using quick brushstrokes.
Underpainting Is a means of delineating colour areas and/or providing a luminous backdrop for progressive colour layering and glazing.
Sgraffito Makes use of two layers of colour, one dry, one wet. Wet colour is painted over the dried underpaint, and, while still wet, it is scratched into with a tool to reveal the underlying colour.
Glazing Is the use of watered- down, transparent paint but here that term refers to a painting process where a clear acrylic medium is tinted with transparent or translucent colour. Is used to produce rich surfaces with great colour depth.
Encaustic is an ancient technique based on working with wax as a painting binder and medium. Can endure melting under hot lights or be prone to the ill effects of mildew.
Acrylic transfers Essentially grab the ink layer of a copied or printed material and embed it into the acrylic film. Can be created by: The image is first covered with a clear-drying acrylic medium. Once the acrylic has dried, the paper is rubbed away, leaving the ink safely logged into the acrylic sheet.
