  1. I feel better about the Open acrylic paint after reading your article. I have not used them yet outdoors but I am very soon. Thank you. I read it to the finish and was glad to do so. A very good article.

    • Hi Virginia,

      We are happy that our article helped you to feel better about trying OPEN Acrylics. Thanks for your kind compliment!

  2. Hi,
    Thank you for this usefull post.
    As I’ m french may I tell you that the wright spelling for ” plein air” is this one. Different meaning for ” aire”.
    Have a nice day,

  3. Thanks for this article. I’ve ben wanting to try plein-aire with my Open acrylics. Around Santa Fe where I live, they seem to be the only viable option for using acrylics this way.


    • Hi Eric,

      You are most welcome. It can be very challenging painting outdoors, and even indoors in a very dry climate. Indoors you could use a humidifier to help slow drying but outdoors, obviously, you need to use a much slower drying paint. Oil paints or our OPEN Acrylics are the best choices.

  4. What is the name/brand of the palette with blue-rimmed lid as photographed for this article? I am not finding it by searching online. Thanks!

  5. I am looking for a liquid medium that would have the appearance of encaustic but not encaustic itself.
    I want to “dip” some 3D vestments made of fabric, thread, and other mixed media to give the appearance of time passing ( as in memories).
    Please advise
