You can use it in many different ways, including blending it as you would oil paint. This is an acrylic technique that simulates the oil-like blending of wet paint. Materials: painting support; flat, soft brush; palette knife; acrylic paints; acrylic glazing liquid; paper towels 1. Apply Paint Near the Hard Edge Where two colors meet with a hard edge, revert the colors with paint right along that edge.
For large areas, add up to one part acrylic glazing liquid to four parts paint before applying the paint. Blend Before the paint dries, blend the colors with a soft brush. Gently stroke back and forth along the edge. Turn the brush as needed so the colors on the brush always correspond to the colors to be blended. Apply the colors a bit further from the edge you are blending. Using a clean brush and the brushing technique in step 2, gently stroke the paint back and forth.
Slowly move the brush and paint toward the edge you want to blend. Remove any excess paint from your brush by frequently wiping it on a paper towel.
Allow Color to Gradually Disappear Dip your brush into acrylic glazing liquid without adding more colors and stroke this over and a bit beyond the blended area. Let this dry, then repeat steps 3 and 4 for the other color. Add more medium each time.
Continue until the blending is acceptable to you.
