This week I am sharing a simple tip that will bring acrylic paint that has become thicker, almost jelly-like to a more normal consistency for painting with.
The first paint is Ultramarine Violet, the second paint is a rather old tube of Quinacridone Blue Violet and the last one is Alizarin Crimson Permanent.
I put a small amount down to incorporate it into the paint and the repeat until the paint looks as smooth as possible.
There is friction created by the palette knife which also helps to smooth the paint more.
See how much smoother the Alizarin Crimson Permanent is? The Quinacridone Blue Violet is better than it started but I decided to toss that particular tube away...it took far to long to 'save'.
