Acrylic Texture Gallery
Experimenting with acrylic paint
In this texture gallery you will find many examples of textures that have been created using acrylic paint.
Although we also recommend working with other painting techniques like watercolours, gouache,
ink and airbrush, we have found acrylics to be a very easy and flexible material to work with for creating textures.
Examples of materials, techniques and tools which can be used with acrylic
paint in order to create different textures and surfaces:
sugar, tea leaves, salt, pasta, egg shell, candle wax, rice, sand, sandpaper, crepe paper, sponges, bubble wrap,
sea salt, stenciling, masking tape, collage, clingfilm, drybrush, blotting,
gloss and matte mediums, turpentine, plastic wrap, Japanese papers, waxed paper, aluminum foil, airline tickets, thread, glass, wood, sawdust, wine corks, magazines, construction paper,
rice paper and tissue paper.
