Acrylic on Aquabord

Aquabord is a great surface for acrylics. Its heavily textured surface offers great adhesion with washes and layering. Because of the high absorbency of Aquabord, acrylic paint soaks in and dries very quickly when painting in thin washes. To gradually build up paint to much heavier layers, be sure to start with thin applications of color and gradually build up to thick impasto strokes to ensure proper adhesion.
