Painting! [Oct. 16th, 2003|12:38 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I'm painting! Here's the webcam!

I've got a sweet little faerie I'm painting now, with bright magenta hair, and after that I'm not sure what I'll work on - I have a lot of ideas!

What brand of acrylic paint do you use?

I'm in awe of your beautiful paintings, and wondered what brand(s) of paint you buy/use?

Re: What brand of acrylic paint do you use?

Thank you!!! After experimenting with nearly every brand of acrylic paint out there, I've decided that the 2oz bottles of liquid acrylics normally found in the "crafts" aisles work the best with my methods! I use a "layering" technique, and I paint horizontally (rather than at an easel) so liquid acrylics work the best for me! They are also the cheapest, and the most durable paints. The dried colours are the same as when they are still wet (not always the case with other types of acrylics!). They dry quickly, which I like! Usually I use "Delta Creamcoat", "Apple Barrel", or "Americana" brand paints. Depending on the store, the brand names may change. "Folk Art" makes some great pigments as well!!!

I'm guessing you finished your little faerie because you are working on a bigger piece now. I missed it =\
