Shake well before using. Apply one well-brushed coat using a soft brush or sponge brush. Apply multiple coats when using more transparent colors. Allow to dry thoroughly before applying additional coats or varnishes.
Squirt a small amount out of the bottle at a time since acrylics dry so quickly.
Masking tape applied over already-dried acrylic paint will not damage the existing paint, thus making it easier to produce a hard or sharp edge.
Reusable glass or high-density plastic can be used as a palette because acrylic paints will not cling to them, making clean-up easy.

Dry time can depend on temperature, humidity, thickness of application etc. Student Acrylics normally dry to touch within 15 minutes or less.
