How do you use acrylic paint?


Best Answer - Chosen by Asker: you squeeze the paint out of a tube, dip your brush in, and paint.

on a serious note, acrylics are waterbased. so you can use plain water to thin them out. They also dry incredibly fast, which is both good and bad. Using a retarding medium will slow that drying time and allow you more flexibility. You want to keep your brushes while painting kept in water in order to keep them from drying and ruining your brushes.

And those are the basics. Good luck!
