6 Secrets to Speed-Dry Sculpted Acrylic Paintings

This short but extremely potent tutorial gets right to the point without fluff, saving you immense time to learn 6 simple and easy tricks to cut a week or two of drying your painting times down to 2 days, and sometimes overnight, depending on how thick your paint is.

Faster dried paintings means:

  • Ability to put sculpted paint pieces in paintings fast
  • Faster completion of whole paintings & projects
  • Done sooner for shipping to the customer
  • Less medium paint fumes from lying around your studio to dry
  • Less dust to fall on wet paint you can't get out of when dry

Works for these Thicker Mediums Without Cracking:

  • Gel Medium
  • Heavy Gel medium
  • Super Heavy Gel Medium
  • Light Molding Paste (Golden)
  • Light Modeling Paste (Liquitex)
  • Fiber Paste
  • Glass Bead Gels
  • Crystal Mortar
  • Pumice Gels (with Gel Medium added)

Works on heavily painted sculptures (made of paint), and impasto, down to thin paintskins.

This is not a course on making a project, but on how to use speed-drying tools, with examples provided. That way you can apply the tools to any acrylic painting project you do.
