Artist Christine O’Neil will give a demonstration using fluid acrylics at the October 16 SMAL Member Meeting.

Painting with Fluid Acrylics
If you like watercolors, you will love acrylic fluids!  They can be soft and similar to watercolors yet are capable of intensities similar to traditional acrylics.  This medium can be a great bridge between watercolors and regular tube acrylics. This demo will show several ways of using them. The paint can be applied to watercolor paper or on stretched canvas.
