Question:Why is acrylic paint semi-permanent? What's in it that makes it so?
It is the acrylic (a synthetic polymer) that gives it its permanence. Paint pigments are suspended in a binder, which then evaporates or dries and leaves the color.
Oil-based is more permanent but can't be used in some parts of the country due to its impact on the environment.
