1  What sort of paint to use? in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by largefarva on: September 13, 2013 12:47:02 PM
So this is going to be my first actual painting project, except for like... watercolors in 4th grade... and it is imperative that I don't screw it up royally....

It's not really sanded, but I think that will be better for the paint to stick to anyway, and it's too late to go back and sand now- I did read a review for these that the paint bleeds a little bit-
I need a semi transparent white, so that the lines show through, with which I am going to cover the whole front (to keep the flowers brighter) and I want some of the wood color to show through to, since a stark white skull would look kind of silly, a black that will act the same way, and the rest of the colors don't have to be thin at all I don't think...
Any advice on types, brands, even shades of paint would be fantastically awesome- the pansies are going to be purple with the orange-yellow centers.
Help!!!! I have no idea how to paint!

2  Finishing up my preoccupation with art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by largefarva on: August 16, 2013 05:08:57 PM
Today my son was driving me nuts, so I just drew all day long.

Then I made a blog. I put all of my drawings except the one I already posted on here on it. I would post all the photo's here too, but I would rather not upload again. http://mamawentcrazy.wordpress.com/2013/08/16/hi/

Oh, I should put one though, so there's a picture of this topic, shouldn't I...
Ok, posting my cutest one now.

I planned to take a few more pictures today, to better capture her beauty (she looks terrible in that picture)- but I learned a hard life lesson today-
Art and children are a BAD combination.
In her memory, I have attempted to crop one of the least failed photographs from last night. Hopefully, between the two, you can get a glimpse of her former good looks.

For me, craftster is about improvising.

If I want to make something, but I don't have any of the supplies I need, I go to craftster for ideas.
This evening I wanted to be an artist, but since I am most definitely NOT an artist, I don't own any art supplies.
This girl is drawn from a photo found on an internet search engine, with a ball point pen on a piece of binder paper, and colored with eyeshadow (when I decided she deserved color).

Sorry for the low quality picture, I know nothing about photography, and I don't have a scanner. She is much more beautiful in real life. I hope you guys love her as much as I do, she is my first successful attempt at both portraits and coloring Smiley
