When it comes to painting, there are so many painting techniques – Oil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, just to name a few! Once you try different paints you will learn what works best for you and what you most enjoy painting with.
Acrylic paint is a good choice to use if you are a beginner. It is water based and faster drying, which is ideal to build up layers of colour, add highlights and paint over any mistakes without having to wait a long time for it to dry. They are also great paints to clean off your brushes!
You may feel that your painting doesn’t quite look how you want it to look when you first start, but with time and patience you will get a feel for your brushes and paints and you will eventually create your own masterpiece.
Once you feel confident you could try painting other objects like MDF letters or models, pottery or try upcycling furniture, the possibilities are endless!
