What are the different types of acrylic paint?

Acrylic paints can be used by artists of all ages and stages. Winsor & Newton's Galeria Acrylic is a good option for those starting out with acrylic painting, having good colour and consistency while still being affordable. For even better quality Winsor & Newton Artist Acrylics and Liquitex Heavy Body acrylics are excellent choices.

Craft acrylics come in a range of colours and sometimes have metallic or glitter finishes. The fast-drying nature of acrylics makes them ideal for use in all kinds of craft projects and kids crafts.

Model acrylic paints are the right thickness and texture for painting intricate details on miniatures, model vehicles and scenery. The Citadel acrylic range, made for Warhammer models, has all kinds of colours and finishes with wonderful descriptive names.
