Other creatives have asked us...

What's the difference between Natural and Resin Sand mediums?

Two things: the particles - Resin Sand is actually tiny acrylic granules, while Natural Sand contains real sand. And the result - Resin Sand gives a coarser dry finish.

A friend has been adding sand to her acrylic paint to create texture - is this a good idea?

Avoid adding sand to acrylic paint. It can introduce contaminants affecting your work's aging. Use Natural Sand or Resin Sand mediums for texture.
