81 Thick Acrylic 1 of 2

IN THIS VIDEO I paint a 16″ x 20″ acrylic  painting using thick strokes of broken color. I also allow the paint to dry at certain points and “oil up” with a water based retarder gel. I have experimnted with a similar technique in the past but using the retarder gel is vastly superior to using the acrylic medium I used previously. Be sure to finish the painting with a generous coat of acrylic medium. This will ensure that all the layers will cross link (bind) and create a strong, non-delaminating surface.


I hope you enjoy this technique. Please let me know your results in the comments section.
