  Acrylic paint - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Acrylic paint is fast-drying paint containing pigment suspended in an acrylic polymer emulsion.
Acrylics are sometimes used in place of watercolors because acrylics dry closer to the desired color (slightly darker, usually) while watercolors dry lighter (and often unpredictably, especially for beginning artists).
Acrylics are often used as an alternative to oil paints because acrylics dry much faster (usually within an hour or even as little as less than a minute, depending on brand and thickness of application).

The oils in alkyd oil-based primers and paints are natural organic materials which serve as mildew food and actually promote mildew growth.
In general, alkyd oil-based paints have poor color and gloss retention when compared to top-quality 100% acrylic paints and often exhibit poor chalk resistance.
In summary, top-quality 100% acrylic latex primers and paints are clearly more effective than alkyd oil-based paints in all critical areas of product performance: wood protection, long-term eye appeal, stability, and reduced maintenance.
