Early in my career I discovered that there was a non-toxic, non-smelly, oil free, quick drying and water soluble alternative to oil paints. Acrylic paints would allow me all the versatility of oils without all the waiting and mess.  I have used acrylic paints on paper, canvas, corrugated cardboard and distressed plywood. My favorite method involves building up multiple thin washes of color in a watercolor style. Oil painters will disagree, but I believe that acrylic paints are superior to oils in their versatility over a multitude of surfaces from fabric to bricks.
