Acrylic paints are among the most versatile yet attractive paints available. They offer the beauty of oil paints with the short drying time of watercolors, come in an endless array of hues, and dry in a variety of finishes: glossy, satin, matte. The polymer binder in acrylics adheres well to a wide range of surfaces: paper, canvas, wood, ceramics, plastics, fabric, rocks, and more. Acrylics also feature a range of viscosities. And because they’re water based, they are easier to use and clean up than oils. All of these factors make acrylic paint a great choice for children. Here are our top picks for the budding young artists in your life.
