How To Blend Acrylic Paint – Tips and Tricks For Abstract Art and Acrylic Painting

0



How to blend acrylic paint for beginners. Tips, Tricks, and Troubleshooting how to for blending things like clouds and skies.

These are some of the techniques that I use to blend acrylic paints! I use these techniques in my abstract artwork and a lot of you asked how i do so. So today i decided to do a video in real time for you to explain the art material and blending techniques that i use.

You can find my abstract works where i use these techniques here:

If you want to see other blending techniques, check out Rinske’s blending video!

Materials:
Acrylic paints – i used soft bodied Amsterdam standard series here.
Brushes: Paddle brushes, mop brushes, flat brushes in a combination of soft and stiff bristles. I also used some make up brushes to blend as i have many of those on hand and i like how soft they are. They are not artist grade or quality though and sometimes the bristles come out on the canvas.
Blending mediums: I have not used them in this video, but there is a flow improver, blending medium, flow aid, and fluid retarder. Different brands make different versions of basically the same thing. You can just use water or a little glycerin and water diluted.

You can find my materials and supplies used in this video and more in my amazon store linked below:
