Paints, how I love you!

"To flowers, as to women, all the beauty comes after make-up" - said one  of my friend, and I can't disagree with her. It's not enough to mold a flower from a beautiful and suitable color of clay - in order to make it indistinguishable from a living one, you need to add games of shades to it.

I use several different types of coloring products: acrylic paints, acrylic gouache, and dry pastel. Each one allows you to create different effects using different techniques. I often work  with Acrylic paint in wet technique (wet brush and damp paint), for example when I need to color the whole berry, but do not change color completely. Due to the low consistency of the pigment, the color falls on the clay in a uniformly thin layer, and is not able to cover the color of the clay completely.

As for pastels, only dry technique is applicable here - I rub pastel on sandpaper, and I get toned away with the resulting shavings. So I get the softest color accents, slightly shading the edge of the petal, for example.

Acrylic gouache contains a very fine pigment, and in large quantities, so it is able to cover the color of the clay completely, and when mixed with Gesso it makes it possible to make a smooth gradient, if you work in the technique dry brush - dry brush and wet paint, the excess of which is removed on dry napkin. But I'll talk about this next time))
