What pouring medium do you use with acrylic paint?
Just curious what you use for a medium to mix with your acrylic paint for use on canvas, I am currently using liquitex pouring medium but its really expensive and would like to find something alittle cheaper. And what 2 part epoxy resin do you use if you use it?

i can help you with the first question…. i forgot all about using liquitex as an additive to acrylic paints. i use to do that, along with experimenting with other weird things… but yuh liquitex by my knowledge in your average hobby store like michaels is your most known popularly used additive and actually it’s cheaper than the other things I’ve tried and you get more for your dollar… however, i only used that in my paints not long at all cause i didn’t like them, yuh they let your paint dry a little slower which is nice but it made some of my colors turn after they dried and idk, was too much of a waste and hassle… the cheapest thing i suggest is water,, seriously. like if your familiar with oils and know how to thin down those paints just enough to where it’s like your doing watercolors but the effect is much more crisp, and precise like (esp for realism), and also dries with in minutes instead of days… then do the same thing with your acrylics yet water.. but not too much cause acrylics a lot tend to really become transparent easier… idk liquitex is good more for bases in my opinion, and always light colors (blacks just turn faded)… you could try water and if it works save all the money….. anymore i only use liquitex as a primer for my canvases in oils and that’s it….
but yuh, that’s about the cheapest for best quality you’ll find in acrylics and the only one i’d use. i wasted probably over a hundred experimenting with other additives and wasting practically all of it. but never came across something cheaper in fine arts (i’m sure there’s something in like the crafty sections, but i wouldn’t even try it.)
as of the word mediums i know when i was working at michaels they came in with all this new stuff for acrylics that was crazy… but it just adds texture and different consistency’s in your paint you know, like adding sand to your paint… weird things like that…. but as of the second question i don’t know how to answer. and now i’m starting to think you are talking about something totally different than what i typed about 0_0… i got too into it to erase it so i’ll just submit it lol.. but if i did answer anything i hope i helped and good luck with what you do (: kel

I use Lascaux Impasto Gel 2 #2046 Matte [USB 7612254017135] This really beefs up the paint supply. It’s not too expensive, but if you’re on a tighter budget, buy the dry acrylic binding medium from Dick Blick. It’s an acrylic medium and anti-fermenting preservative that you mix with water to the consistency you want… and you can add marble dust to it to get a thicker impasto like medium. Either way, adding a medium, any medium, will stretch the paint further. Good luck.

What is the best handgun caliber for hunting small to medium game?
Has to be a medium Caliber, bigger than .22 but smaller than .44, game includes squrrels and groundhog
Suggestion by Glacierwolf
Most handgun hunting is not done with a standard pistol or revolver – since nearly all of these calibers are tailored to either military, police, or personal defense.
The firearm used is usually the Thompson Contender pistol – it comes in a million calibers starting from 22lr, 22Bee, 22 hornet, etc etc all very suitable for small to medium game hunting in a huge variety of barrel lengths and styles. This, and some of the speciality pistols like the Remington 221 Fireball are what hunters are mostly using when pistol hunting varmints.
Hope this helps

It’s a shame it has to be bigger than a 22, since that would be perfect for squirrels and groundhogs.
I guess the next step up would be a 38 or 9mm, either of which would absolutely devastate a groundhog or a squirrel. There are calibers in between (such as .32), but they would be more expensive to shoot and you’d have fewer options for guns and ammo.
I say get a 357 magnum, which can also fire 38 special, and that will cover everything up to deer. It might be overkill, but you’ll have some nice hunting revolvers to choose from, and lots of ammo options too.

* The best choice of Caliber is the 22 Magnum.* Use hollow point ammo.*
