am just starting with Acrylics from watching Dede’s channel and she uses them on coloring books. If that is what I use them on then is it alright to just use water? I think I remember you saying that if it was used on paper then it was alright to use water?
Ah, another one huh. Yeah, this is a down right MYTH! The adhesion problems that paint have occur for 2 reasons. First is the quality of the paint. Second which you did touch on a bit, is the surface your painting on. However, primed canvas is perfectly fine as it still absorbs the paint. The only “flaking” you’ll get is if you paint on something like glass, plastic, or metal.
I’ve just found this channel and I love it, thank you for the tips <3
you’re pretty, lady
wait… you’re supposed to put water in the paint? Well damn. I feel stupid..
That was really helpful. Thanks!
Thanks is there any oil’s I can mix with water paints
which brand is best for acrylic colours
i heard it was 40/60 ratio not 30/70 ?
Thanks for making it fun as well as informative!
i didn’t t even know that the acrylics must be mixed with water or with some kind of water!! 😮 :DD
soo..i shouldn’t prime my canvas if I want to use water?
so if i have a piece of wood primed with gesso, is using a ton of water a no-no?
What if you’re painting a vinyl doll?
good tips & nice to see some sanae ladies sans tattoo. WTG girl!
She reminds me of brizzyvoices
A nice and cheap painting surface that absorbs the pigment in paint is actually the carboard-ish backing on a spiral sketchbook or pads of paper.
(I did a painting yesterday actually using the back of a pad of Crescent Rendr paper and it turned out so nice)
I found this to be very helpful and on point.Just wanted to say thanks!Made sense to me…AND it worked better when I applied this newfound knowledge.
Not related to the video so much but just wanted to say I love your hair.
You Are Beautiful .
I love this video. You didn’t waste and went right to the point. I after many years decades have decided to switch from oils to acrylics. That said I need to learn as much as possible. Thanks
Emmy, thank you so much for this (and I love the short format!). Quick q: would applying sealant at the end help address this at all, or would it all crack/flake off anyway?
Has anyone out there experimented with this?
….the mistakes I invariably make. Thanks for the video. Gustavo Woltmann
Thanks for the info. I did my first painting and i don’t like what i did on a part of it can i paint over it.
Your energy was too awesome! ayyyy!
You are so cool! I just subscribed 😛
I use alot of water when i paint, and I have never had any problems with the paint cracking or falling of.
does a price of paper taped or glued to a piece of cardboard count as a canvas ????????????????????
With the economical student grades, troubles can run abound. With artist grade paints, they are more dynamic and forgiving. Here is a great piece from Will Kemp that includes feedback directly from the manufacturers of GOLDEN Paints… http://willkempartschool.com/getting-started-how-to-choose-what-to-paint-on/
Omg! Thank you! I’ve just started getting into acrylic pouring and I guess I’ve been adding too much water and not enough painting medium, because they always seem to “crackle” after they have dried… I will try to add less water next time 😀 Thank you!
If I paint on a t-shirt with acrylic paint mixed with water, will the paint crack and come off after I wash it? I don’t have acrylic medium or white fabric paint where I live so I need some advice.
Wonderful! Thank You!
You just winked at me….right back atcha sexy 😉
Would you paint me like I’m one of your French girls?
