In general, there are many beneficial characteristics of acrylic paints. They are versatile and can cover any surface which is oil and wax free. They are less toxic around children and pets than some other paints. Since they are water-based, they dry quickly, but are still water resistant once they are dry. They are also both durable and vibrant.
At Bold School, we like acrylic paints because they allow for the technique of layering and for effective color blending -- both of which Charla teaches about in some depth in Bold Color Bootcamp.
