Acrylic paint is a quick drying paint made of pigment that is suspended in an acrylic polymer emulsion. Although water soluble when wet they become water resistant when dry. Acrylic paints were first used as early as the 1930's but did not really become commercially available until the 1950's. These paints were also later sold as latex house paints. Many artists such as the abstract expressionists and famous artist Jackson Pollock used latex paint in his large "drip" canvases. The early inventors of Pop Art such as Roy Lichtenstein also used latex paint on their canvases. But, often latex paint has become so unstable in adhering to the canvas that the paint literally flakes off when moving the art object. Obviously not intended to do so, acrylic paints have been a cheaper alternative to oil based paints and often are much easier to use than having to mix your own. The main difference between acrylic and oil paints is the binder - linseed oil for oil paints and water for acrylic. Acrylic paints also dry a lot quicker than oil paints.
