Acrylic Paint

Acrylic paint has a rather recent history. It was invented and launched onto the market at the beginning of the 50's by researchers at the National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico City who wished to create a resistant and permanent artistic medium.

It's made out of pigments, the same used for oil colors and acrylic resin. This type of paint takes little time to dry and is practically indelible on porous surfaces. Indeed, removing it from such a support required the use of very powerful products.

It can be diluted in water to determine its level of opacity and can even be mixed with pulverized materials (sand, marble dust, gravel, or fiberglass) to create textured effects. Unlike oil paint, acrylic does not yellow when aging and gives off little odor.
