✨ About paints
Acrylic paints come in fluid or paste form. Those in paste are buttery and can retain a lot of water. On the other hand, fluid forms can be easier to work with for those who are more used to types of liquid paints.
Don't get carried away by buying too many colors, because you don't need too many. As a beginner, just get the basic colors, because you can combine them easily. You can even get black by mixing the three primary colors.
Brushes usually come in different shapes and sizes. The ones we need for acrylic painting are usually made of synthetic materials and have stiff bristles. You need softer bristles if you want to get a watercolor effect.
You should have a variety of brushes, from big to small. You can use big brushes for big portions, with a looser painting style. For smaller areas and details, use small brushes.
Water is another essential element in painting. When you need to change colors, you have to rinse the brushes, and water is exactly what you need for that. You can keep two large jugs of water, one to rinse and one to dilute and moisten, if necessary.
A cloth will also be useful after rinsing. You can rinse the brushes here after rinsing, if the brush is too wet or use it to clean up any mistakes you make.
