ACRYLIC
Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint containing pigment suspension in acrylic polymer emulsion. Acrylic paints are water soluble, but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water or modified with acrylic gels, media, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media.
 

Student colours are made from less expensive pigments and more 'filler' so the range of colours is more limited. Student quality paints generally don't mix together as successfully, nor are the results as vibrant as artist's quality paints. This can make colour mixing frustrating. While using student quality paints is a good painting experience, it doesn't give you the same colour-mixing experience. On the other hand, you may be less inhibited using student quality paint than with more expensive paints, and thus be willing to experiment more. Worrying about wasting your art materials is a sure way to stiffen up, to inhibit yourself, and usually ends with poor results!
