Over the past decade, manufacturers have made drastic improvements to acrylic paint that make it wonderfully appealing to the fine artist. An extensive array of acrylic mediums is available, allowing artists to lengthen the drying time of the paint, completely alter the paint's consistency, add an iridescent sheen, and much more. This book offers all the information a contemporary artist needs to be on the cutting edge of this versatile medium.
