How to Paint on Paper with Acrylics?

Painting is a hobby, whether it is a child or an adult, more or less painted. Then to paint, we must choose paper. How to choose the right paper to paint has a great influence on our drawing effect. 

About acrylic painting

Acrylic painting refers to a painting made of acrylic paint. This pigment is a new type of paint that is a mixture of chemically synthesized latex and color particles that appeared in the 1960s. The main feature of acrylic painting is the use of acrylic paint for painting. The polyacrylic acid pigment itself is water-soluble, and after drying, forms a porous film and becomes water resistant. The color is bright, the color is bright, the chemical change is stable, and the layers of the overlapping and soft pigments are bonded to each other to form transparent or translucent, strong adhesion and weather resistance, and durability. The color of acrylic paint does not change much, it is more vivid, pure, and the surface is slightly shiny. The pigments are firmly attached, can be repeatedly modified, and can be thickly coated without cracking or peeling, which is more suitable for various painting performance techniques. 

The picture of the acrylic painting is flat, which can avoid the problem that the picture is curled and deformed after the gouache is dried. The color separation between the color layers of the acrylic painting is good, and the physical or chemical reaction caused by the mutual penetration between the color layers is reduced. The disadvantage of acrylic painting is that it is too fast to dry, and it is not suitable for long-term storage in the color box. The pigment on the painting is easy to dry and difficult to clean after drying. But these are not always unsolvable.

What kind of paper is suitable for painting?

Because no matter what color is painted on the white background, it will maintain the original color. Therefore, in the study of color recognition, white paper is generally used. However, you can also paint on the colored paper. Among various colored papers, black paper is most suitable for color. When painting with other colors, especially bright colored paper, it is best to choose the opposite color. In addition to white paper and colored paper, you can change the material of the paper to paint.
