What’s the difference between acrylic Brushes and tempera brushes? 

Acrylic mix media, which is a combination of acrylic paints,acrylic paint brushes set and other materials such as collage, texture paste, or even found objects, allows for a wide range of expressive possibilities. These brushes are designed to meet the specific needs of mixed media.  

Tempera brushes, on the other hand, are designed specifically for use with tempera paint, a medium known for its vivid and opaque qualities. These brushes are made to hold and distribute tempera paint, making them ideal for intricate details and precise strokes. 

NOTE: To create broad strokes or to express details in painting a 1-inch paint brush is ideal to use. It gives the boldness in your painting. 


Cleaning your brushes after use is important for preserving their quality and longevity. To begin, gently tap the brush to remove excess paint. Then, gently swirl the brush in warm, soapy water to remove any remaining paint residues. Rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear. Blot the brush dry with a paper towel, reshape the bristles, and air dry completely before storing. This routine care will keep your brushes in great shape for your next artistic endeavor. 

Acrylic paints are used in mixed media art techniques such as layering, blending, and adding texture. Acrylics are frequently combined with other materials such as collages, pastels, or inks by artists to create depth and complexity in their compositions. Pouring, splattering, and impasto techniques are common in mixed media pieces, allowing for a dynamic interplay of colours and textures. Experimentation is essential for maximizing the potential of acrylics in mixed media.
