What type of paint does Romero Britto use?

What type of paint does he use?

I want a paint that goes on very smooth, bright, and no brush strokes. Just like his paintings.

I know he uses acrylic, but what type?

(sorry, I am not allowed to post a link, but if you Google Image search "Romero Britto painting", you can see what I mean)

I don't know what he uses but you can actually achieve these kinds of results with nearly any acrylic - thicker types just need to be thinned appropriately. But in terms of ease of use a fluid acrylic is probably your best option.

Where are you based? That might be a factor in what's easiest to get, since fluid acrylics aren't as common as thicker types.

Do you know if your colour is off in hue, value, chroma... or all three?

Re: What type of paint does Romero Britto use?

If you look at the many images of him working, you see that he works from a large variety of jars of paint. This indicates fluid acrylics, although it would be possible to make any acrylic paint into a fluid using a variety of mediums, but that involves a lot of mixing and prep work so I think fluid acrylics is the most likely answer.

BTW, he also works in oil paint on canvas, watercolor, and other media so he is not exclusively an acrylic artist.

I checked out his art and it is very bright and smooth. I would assume he uses a fluid acrylic for that kind of painting when he does use acrylic's

IMHO, it has little to do with the brand but more to do with the skill of the artist.
