How to Fix Acrylic Painting MistakesHave you been wanting to give a paint party class a try but are worried that you'll make a mistake??? Well, it's almost as easy to fix an acrylic painting mistake as it is to make one!! Even as professional artists we make mistakes that need to be touched up. The easiest way to fix an acrylic painting mistake is by trying to catch it while it's still wet!!
When you have a painting mistake just grab a clean paper towel and dip it in water so that it's damp but not soaking. Using a gentle touch, wipe away the mistake. We always let our painters know that sometimes it will look worse before it looks better just be sure to keep using a fresh area of your paper towel to wipe up any smudges and viola! It's as good as new!! Once you've removed everything grab a dry paper towel and lightly blot off any excess water, once the canvas is dry you can resume painting!
Sometimes you might find that your paint is still mostly wet but a few areas have dried and simply can't be wiped away. Don't worry! There is an easy fix for that as well!! Just pick up a small amount of the paint color that was beneath what you were adding and touch up any areas that couldn't be wiped away. Once that has dried you can resume your paint party!
Don't forget, wine and paint events aren't always about being perfect! Mistakes are what make each Pinot's Palette painting unique! Sometimes a sip of wine and an encouraging word from our artists is all that you'll really need to make those little mistakes just disappear!!
