How to Mix Acrylic Paint

Hi friends! In this video I’m sharing the basics of mixing acrylic paint, demonstrating the two ways you can mix acrylic paint (on the canvas or on your palettes), how to blend your colours together on the canvas, how to tone down a colour that’s too vibrant, and how to avoid mixing mud while you’re mixing your paint!

I hope this video is helpful to you, please subscribe if you’re new, and leave me a comment if you enjoyed, thanks!
