haha so silly me, being totally stuck in the world of aquarel/gouache/acrylics, didnt even put one thought into what bob ross was actually using and just went in with my acrylic paint. to be fair it was my first bob ross tutorial ever and i didnt realised what was going on until i got totally stressed by the fact that my color was drying so fast and i couldnt really blend it... so yeah since i dont really wanna work with oil (please not another painting media, my craft space is already fully packed) has anyone tips for me on how to work those designs with acrylics? i wanna do a second one tonight and thought of adding a bit retarder to my paints...

There are quite a few users here painting in acrylics.

I think your best bet is to create a discussion on the forum, I'm sure someone with experience with acrylics will help you out :)

The circular canvas was a really cool idea!

I like the idea of water on the round canvas! I think this really enhances water qualities!
