Kautilya Posted April 22, 2010 Share Posted April 22, 2010 Kindly see below for discussion (whether acrylic or another 'plastic paint' can be used to strengthen, reinforce splitting from inside or also outside (to give a fresh look to) bellows Painting on paper with acrylic. Gary Smith (talking about paper preparation for painting with oils to get long life of painting): The secret to painting on paper and preparing less expensive papers lies in the wonder of the acrylic medium. Acrylic, is essentially a plastic in liquid form. When it dries, and it dries so fairly rapidly, it forms a highly resistant and protective layer of plastic. It also has excellent adhesive qualities, which makes it suitable for a number of painting and preparing purposes. All that is required are a number of layers of thin acrylic paint or medium on the paper. Three layers should be sufficient, allowing each layer to dry before applying the next. The texture that you might like to create will be determined by the amount of acrylic paint or medium you apply. ….The acrylic paint and medium is basically a layer of plastic that protects the surface against penetration from oil and other elements. Acrylic medium also strengthens the paper. This is the reason why relatively cheaper paper can be used with this method. However, remember that we are still dealing with paper and there are limits to its strength and flexibility. and??? http://www.polymarine.com/products/parts-and-accessories/flexible-paints-and-antifoulings/superflex-pvc-paint/index.cfm Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
