Editor's Notes

June 12, 2020:

Painting is one of the many forms of self-expression that people utilize as an outlet for relaxing, relieving stress, and creating the images in their minds. While seasoned artists may choose oil paints or watercolors as their primary medium, there is something to be said about the simplicity of acrylic paints.

While acrylics dry much faster than oil, they are water-soluble, so you can thin them by adding water. Since they are a plastic-polymer, they dry into a flexible, durable surface to which you can add more layers without disturbing or destroying the one beneath, giving you the ability to create textures and depths that you simply cannot attain with oils and watercolors. They are non-toxic, which means you can paint anywhere because you don't have to worry about fumes.

We selected a range of numbered kits that come with acrylic paints, so you can enjoy quick drying and ease of use. The Lapoea Surf Shack is one of the more vibrant selections, along with the Ifymei Dinosaurs, that offer bright blasts of highly-pigmented colors from which you create your artwork. For a more muted approach, consider the Komking Magic Cat, which features darker colors and more blending. More traditional options include the Vigeiya Sunset, which is still vibrant, but in a more subdued manner, and the Antiniska Rose, which evokes a more poignant feeling than other options.
