How well will acrylic paint on wood, glass, and metal stick? Will it stay still or will it just end up moving?

Acrylic paint shouldn’t be reserved for just the surfaces of canvases. But how well does acrylic paint on wood, glass, and metal work? Will it adhere, or will it move and chip away?

Wood is actually a great surface for acrylic paints! It will stay put on the surface very well when dried.

However, it would be beneficial to seal the wood and prime beforehand. Sealing assists in preventing Support Induced Discoloration. This occurs when impurities in some shades cause it to dry a slightly different colored or discolored. In addition, the primer will just guarantee that the paint will stick and not move.

On the other hand, glass is a bit tricky for acrylic paint to stay on. Some acrylic paints like Benicci Acrylic set are more permanent and have less trouble, like acrylic enamel paint, but others will come off in one wash.

With some work, this paint will also work on metal. You just need to make sure you use a an oil-based primer and let it dry to ensure that it adheres.
