Could this be the perfect acrylic paint for mixed media?
1. It’s easy to use and dries quickly with a matte finish
- Dylusions paint (designed to Dyan Reaveley’s specifications for Ranger) is easy to blend and waterproof!
- Being an acrylic paint, Dylusions are very versatile and dry quickly (because, come on, who has the time to wait for paint to dry?).
- One of our favourite features is that it dries to a matte finish allowing you to add many more layers on top
- The wide opening jars are perfect for dipping brushes, cosmetic sponges, palette knives and fingers straight into the paint (if you haven’t tried finger painting yet then darling, you simply must!).
2. You can write over the top with ink markers
A common issue most mixed media artists encounter in art journalling is ‘how to write on top of paint’…
Who hasn’t ruined a few pens and markers in the process?
Well, Dylusions acrylic paint is here to save us as it readily accepts all types of ink pens and ink markers on top, without clogging up the tip.
Let me hear a ‘woop woop!’ for Dylusions 🙂
3. Dylusions Acrylic paint comes in a big range of pretty colours!
Dylusions paint comes in the same colours are the Dylusions Ink Sprays so are perfectly compatible.
We stock the most popular colours but if the one you want shows as ‘out of stock’, please let us know here 🙂
All these features make Dylusions a quality acrylic paint and must explain why they are so popular!
I was a little sceptical at first about Dylusions Paint but once I got to know it, I started loving it!
The jars are just plain fun: who doesn’t love dipping their fingers in paint I ask?! I certainly do 😉
I love painting transparent layers with my Liquitex Basics paint first then adding final touches with the Dylusions Paint on top because it is very opaque.
Make sure to watch Dyan’s tips and techniques videos below to make your paint go a long way, in your art journal or canvas.
PS: If you want to know what the best markers to use on top of acrylic paint are, I recommend Sharpie markers in black and white (the white ink is very opaque!)
