The main difference between the two pigments is their chemical property. First, let's look at some basic stuff.

Oil and acrylic paints are very different from watercolor paints. Dry Watercolors and oil paintings may dissolve if you use water at any time. But not for acrylic paint. These pigments are permanent and will not dissolve even if water/oil is added to the desired medium. So these paints are more durable.

Now let's look at the structure of the paint. The colors of pigments come from organic and mineral sources, and they are usually named after them. These sources are called pigments. For example, cobalt blue is the name, so BCS actually has cobalt in it, which produces blue. The next step is to add the basis for these pigments. Oil Paints, as the name suggests, have an oil base, that is, they use oil as a medium, and they dissolve in it. Acrylic resins, on the other hand, are artificially synthesized in the laboratory and are water-soluble.

In terms of painting the differences are manifold.

In general, oil paints have a heaven-like blending ability that makes them look so realistic. Acrylic now mixes quite well, but it's harder to control than oil. Depending on the proportion of Turpentine mixed with linseed oil or other oils, the drying time and the transparency of the paint will vary. The bigger the TURPENTINE, the more the paint dissolves, and the shorter the drying time. The more flaxseed, the longer the drying time, the more creamy and creamy the flavor. Acrylic resins do not have this complexity, but they dry very quickly, so special inhibitors are often added to increase the mixing time for better drying.

Both have their own unique ways, and both can lead to amazing results, and choosing one over the other depends on the effort you want to put in and your desire to learn. But Oil has been used for centuries, and masters still use it as a professional medium to maintain some form of supremacy
