I prefer Russian brands of acrylic paints – such as AcrilArt,
AcrylHobbyDeLux, Ladoga, as well as various foreign brands such as Maimeri, if I like the color.
When choosing acrylic, I assess whether it has a bright gloss when it dries out and whether it is opaque.I love using canned acrylic as this way I can control the thickness of acrylic, and it is very important for this technique.
When you purchase white, please note that zinc white is often less opaque, so I prefer titanium white.
I do not use acrylic from hardware stores nor acrylic for decorative works as it can be of lower quality than painting acrylic, and its properties may not be suitable for this technique.
