Painting Tuturial.. Jackie style.
Ive been asked by quite a few ladies to do a Painting Tut... I am going to say straight away, Im not that brill at painting, (see Bev R's cards !!!!) she a master in the art of stamped images, and Jak is a marvel at freehand paintings... They do it probably the correct way, LOL... I do it ... like Frank said, My Way ! .
But I will give it a bash and try to add pictures as well. although not good at that either lol so think pictures going to be all over the place. ! I will try my best.
Ingredients.... (please remember this is the way I do it)
Paints (obviously) lol.. I use shimmer paints from The Works, (2.99),
Set of kiddies paints from Woolies (99p) :) bargain
water, brushes, I use the medium one, for everything, but choice is yours, (I dont fill the resovoir (sp).
kitchen roll, plain white tiles for mixing colours on, (or something to that effect).. sheet of scrap paper/or card, (to test the brush before applying to printed image).
One printed image. For this demo (rofl, I am using... ohh guess what.. a Sarah Kay). ! :)
Right here we go then.
No. 1 ... load a brush up with said colour, having brush not too wet it causes water blobs (this is SO not going to be very techno). out line the image .. ie in this case the apron with pink paint.
No. 2 ... then wash brush out in clean water, and all but dry it.. and then.. blend the painted outline colour into the centre of the image.. swirling the brush round and round... if the brush becomes too coated in colour, wipe clean on kitchen roll ( or you will end up with no shading but one block colour).
No. 3 ... Next . a little bit more shading.. go over some places (usually marked on most stamps... with a loaded brush of paint again (not too wet)... clean brush off and all but dry
No. 4 ... repeat the blending in circle motions.... hey presto... one painted apron.. (well Im not doing the whole image tonight as light bad and im shattered) lol so if Ive gone over the lines you know why.
Now going to attempt to add the piccies in nearly right places.... cant see that happening. ! ..
Any questions?? leave me a comment and I will try to answer it best I can..... NOW.. I will want to see what you come up with... cos Heaven help you all, with my instructions, as I said, so much easier to show... and no.. I dont have a vid cam thingy whatsit !
