2 Working with the Acrylic tool
You’ll find the same properties for the Acrylic brush as for Watercolor, but of course it works in a different way. Colour spread is reduced, and it occurs more slowly on the canvas. If you increase the Loading and Pressure values you’ll have a thicker brush with a lot of mass, producing an impasto effect, which totally covers the canvas texture. For better colour blending, especially with a high Loading setting (close to 100), switch to Dirty mode.
Brush strokes with a high Loading value totally cover the canvas texture. If you want to bring back some of the canvas’ texture, start painting on a new layer. You can change brush textures to achieve different impasto effects.
