Hi, I'm Koorosh Angali with I'm going to give you some tips about acrylic paint. One of the very important parts of acrylic painting is the medium that you prepare for your painting. Some people use the mediums directly from the jar. It's, one of the drawbacks about that is that it dries very fast, so later on after inventing the medium, the manufacturers decided that to create a retardant medium for that purpose. But you can control that. You don't have to necessarily go with your retardant medium. What you need to do is to mix your medium fifty-fifty with water, preferably distilled water because it doesn't have any chemicals or any minerals in it. Mix them in a jar and use them with your acrylic paintings. If there is any excess, any extras left, we can always store them. I store them in the conventional camera film containers. You can use any kind of air tight container and store them.
