Let us address some common issues.
The underside of paint dried slowly as compared to the surface.
Many of you might have the same question in mind about acrylic paints. I read this new article and which would help you understand the process in a more profound way. In case you have tried any new method to reduce or increase the drying speed, share it with us too.
What makes acrylic colors dry fast?
We understand and have observed that some artists want their paint to dry out slowly so that they can play around and make more textures in their paintings. Although being a water-based paint medium with a higher pigment ratio, the water dries out fast, making the pigment look brighter.
Now, if you are wondering what I can do to reduce the drying speed? All you’ve to do is add retarders (agents responsible for reducing the drying time). These will reduce the drying time without affecting the paint or its pigment quality.
⚠️ Make sure you don’t use a lot of it else your work won’t dry at all.
Ayush, If I buy these paints and my usage frequency is low, how do I store them?
Some tips I’d like to share:
- Many suggest storing them in 16-26/27 c have you wondered why? Acrylic colors being water-based dried out in high temperatures and freezes in low temperatures. So store it in a place that is close to this temperature.
- Atmospheric moisture and paints aren’t great friends. Keep them away from storage places close to wash basins or air conditioner as it has access to airflow.
- The best place to store them would be in the original box they come along with or buy a Tupperware airtight container. It should solve your problem.
- For places like Mumbai with high humidity, you could just put your main container in a sub-container and put it in a pack of the silicon-absorbing packet.
On the other hand, its best is to use them up fast so that you are not worried about them drying up.
We love discussing art supplies with our users. Here’s what Ankit shared with us.
I have tried several brands. They are amazing at their level, but I’ve always felt like my pockets are burning ?. Not that I didn’t know off this brand, but I still have an interest in trying out new things in life or art.
Never have I felt the need at any point that better colours would have created better work. The camel acrylic colours have stayed as it is for over 15 years. I haven’t found any deterioration. Plus point it doesn’t burn my pocket 😛
If you are a beginner or a professional, I would any day suggest using camel acrylic colours. They’d be the perfect paint partner to mould your way into the art carrier.
I feel that you’d be losing on the fantastic experience that so many artists have been having over so many years by not picking this brand of paint. Why miss out, right??
