Glossary of Printing Terms:
Acrylic Paint

A water-resistant paint made by mixing pigment in a solution of polymer resin. These paints or colors are also called Plastic Colors to distinguish them from Polymer Paints, which are dispersed in water.

Acrylic Paints do not yellow nor fade, and they dry quickly, have much durability and adhesive qualities and are easy to remove with turpentine.

These characteristics make them popular with some artists and conservators but unpopular with others because they dry so quickly that subtle mixing of colors cannot occur and they are hard on brushes.

Acrylic Paints are sold commercially as Magna Colors and combined with Magna Varnish, a sealing solution that protects each coat so the highly soluble Magna Colors can be overpainted.
