About Acrylic Paints
The Acrylic Paint is water based. The binder in acrylic paint is a synthetic plastic, therefore, acrylics dry quickly and are water soluble. This allows clean-up free from the disadvantageous smell of other media. They are non-toxic and environmentally friendly.
About Oil Paints
We call it Oil Paint because of the binder element, "the linseed oil" used to binder the pigments together in this paint. Its use began in the 15th century and was most assuredly heralded as a major event. Oil paint is extremely flexible and when thoroughly dry is very hard and durable. This are characteristics of paint desperately sought after, by generations of artists. Further inventions such as canvas and tube color have little changed the basic innovations of oil painting. It became, and remains for many, the perfect medium.
No obnoxious smells - No toxic vapors
