Acrylic appears lighter in color when wet. The acrylic binder is naturally white when wet, but dries clear and glossy. Therefore while painting with acrylic, the color will appear lighter when wet but goes to its natural color when dry. The more mediums and gels you add to a paint color, the greater the difference between this lighter version when wet and its natural color when dry. Paint color added to pastes, however, will not change in color very much between wet and dry. That is because pastes are white when wet, remaining white when dry.
