When we hear the word Glazing in fine art, many of us will automatically think of Oil Paints. While oil paint is an excellent medium for glazing techniques, they are not the only painting medium that can be used. Acrylic paint can also be used with great effect.
Acrylic paints have come a long way since they were made commercially available back in the 1950’s. Water isn’t the only medium you can add to alter acrylic paints. There are now mediums available that you can add to acrylic paint to make them more transparent and transparency is what we are after in order to accomplish glazing with acrylics.
Listed below are various videos and articles that I discovered around the Web that talk about and demonstrate the acrylic glazing technique.
