What is Ready Mixed Paint? Ready mixed paint is a standard, universal paint option that is popular in both art-specific and non-art specific classrooms alike. It is notable for its similarities to acrylic paint, with only the most seasoned artists using professional techniques able to discern the two.
Like acrylic, ready mixed paint is a water-based liquid with a smooth, creamy consistency, and doesn’t require water to activate. Despite this, water may still be used to thin it out for a paler effect perfect for backgrounds or shading. Each bottle is super clear to reveal crisp and clean colour, and features a convenient flip top cap so teachers can easily monitor and control the use of the paint.
Appearance Although slightly less opaque than its standard counterparts, washable ready mixed paint is still much higher in opacity than any other paint, allowing artists to create clear outlines, colours, and layers with ease. It is also thick enough to provide good coverage, yet thinner and more liquid than acrylic. This means children will particularly find it straightforward and pleasant to use when creating a simple image that doesn’t require the complexity of depth and texture, nor in fact the patience that comes with repeatedly dipping a brush into thicker paints. For younger children learning to paint, this easy-use option is also a sure way of keeping them interested in the activity long term.
The crisp white tone dries to a matte finish for a vivid and satisfying appearance at all angles, and dries quicker than other paints for optimal classroom use. For a thicker or more glossy finish, the paint will easily intermix with PVA glue without overly de-saturating the colour.
Uses Ready mixed paint is also referred to as poster paint as it works best on paper, carboard and poster-boards. As an all-round paint however, its low cost and clear appearance also make it ideal for sponge painting or papier-mâché with newspaper print, without having to waste more expensive specialist paints. Generally, crafts, non-permanent projects, and casual art activities are where you will find the best use for this paint.
Compared to our standard ready mixed paints, the washable variety are slightly less lightfast, although this is no problem if work is not expected to be displayed for an extended period of time. As children can often be messy when working on a masterpiece, rest assured that YPO Washable Ready Mixed Paint is easy to remove from skin and most clothing fabrics for a stress-free experience. For clothing in particular, washable varieties are recommended over alternatives to be on the safe side.
