Our jobsite kits for fast-drying acrylics

fast dry acrylic set

These are kits that contain decorative painter’s palette for fast-drying acrylics.  It is these colors that I have on hand at all times.  They fit neatly in these little totes I had made to carry them to job sites. They come in handy for almost every finish.  Here are some common uses for fast-drying Matte Fluid Acrylics:

  • To paint ornaments, and maquettes as the paint has an opaque application
  • Tinting glaze for small areas (faux marble, woodgrain, etc)
  • Tinting trompe l’oeil & ornamentation tonalities
  • Used on a palette for adding tonality to a glaze
  • Tinting custom colors of paint in small amounts
  • Touching up small areas (after you’ve patched)
  • Basically, a fix-all for jobsite touch-up areas
