By Stephanie Pui-Mun Law
So there you have it, a taste of the tools and techniques for painting with acrylics, as well as some tips for tricks that I have learned over the years from experience and from teachers. I haven't told you how you should or what you should paint...only the tools to let you come to your own stylistic decisions. If you are new to acrylics, I hope I haven't scared you away, and that this advice proves helpful. If you are an oldtime acrylic painter here to pick my brain of any useful tidbits, I hope you found some, and if you have any advice of your own to give to me, it's always welcome.

Thanks so much. This is a great article. I have been dabbling only a little while but couldn’t work out why my paintings were so flat. I also (unknowningly) was scumbling with a dry brush. I am now going to try out glazing with a portrait and see how I go. Stephanie Pui-Mun Law
