Today I went and bought a few Acrylic Paints, I am just looking to try something new:D Only problem is I dont really know how to use them:oops:
So I was wondering if ANYONE had ANY advice that they could give me???
Please I would greatly appreciate it Thanx in advance:D
Bumpity Bump Bump :D please anyone???
I have the same paints, but I don't really use them any special way.
What are you trying to do with them?
The penultimate rule of paint is that you put dark paint into light paint, little by little. It's all about the process.
I am just trying to paint a picture on paper of my horses. Thankyou I will remember that.
I tried to paint my horse Red but it doesnt look good:oops: I had trouble blending the colours together!!
No I didnt mean mixing the paints I meant When I have painted onto the paper I try to Get different colours into it to make it look real and I found that I would have 2 completley diffferent browns or other colour next to each other.
Thankyou for helping me by the way!!
If you're painting on paper it may be a good idea to use acrylic primer (or regular imulsion paint) to prime the paper first, it's a cheaper alternative to buying canvas.
Also it's a good idea to work background to foreground.
If you're mixing you're paints and having problems blending them what i sometimes do is mix the tinyest bit of white or what ever colour you're using on to the painting where i'm blending and work it on to the paint on the page ( i hope that makes sense)
Yeah I get that!!! Thankyou so much for your help :D
*whispers* I have never used paints to do a good picture before ;) Persoanally, I HATE painting, but my graphite is another story I love my graphite! I have no advice whatsoever to give you except take the others advice. (Oh and I want to see photos of this artwork you did, maybe then I can help you with things :D)
