Acrylic w/Oil glazes
Then did the first painting till I thought it was complete using acrylics. Once the acrylics completely dried I sprayed with a clear coat of varnish and then let that dry completely. Once varnish layer was dry I went back in and added in glazes and opaque swipes of oil paint. (Figured if I didn't like it I could wipe it off, not damaging the acrylic layer below the varnish)
Why did I add oil? I was trying to do was to utilize the best of acrylics, easy correction and fast drying, but give it the final vibrancy that only oils can give. The oils, were water mixable, and even the liquin was water soluble, so everything cleaned up with soap and water. Not too many bad smells either. And, as advertised I think there is a big difference in the pictures where the oil was added.
Thanks much for stopping by
