How to paint Abstracts with Skye Taylor


A lot of artists are afraid of using acrylics especially after they have worked a lot in oils or watercolors. But they can be an essential part of an artist's portfolio and here I will give you 11 tips to help you make the most of them.
You can use acrylic paints both like oil paints (taking into account drying time) and like watercolours by watering down the paint so they are hugely versatile. They just take a bit of getting used to. You can create realistic paintings and I personally think they are great for creating abstract art. You can be big and bold with your colours or you can be subtle and detailed.
Below are some of the things that I think are essential or just useful to know about acrylic paints:

 

  1. Firstly, although acrylic paint is water soluble when wet, once it is dry it is like plastic. Therefore you must make sure you wash your brushes or painting implements immediately after use and before the paint dries or else you may ruin your art tools, particularly brushes.
  2. If you are used to using oil paint and find that acrylic paint dries too quickly, then there are products out there that will stop the acrylics from drying so fast. Buy some good acrylic paint retarder and that will really help you if you want to use acrylics for wet into wet for example.
  3. You can get some really interesting effects by watering down the acrylic paint when you use it. Try using the paint as if you were painting a watercolour scene or use for abstract work like 'marbled' style paintings.

How to Decorate With metallic paints

Today's metallic paints can be any color for any room.
Metallic wall paint offers creative home decorators the chance to enhance any space with light-reflecting touches. Whether you add small hints of paint in high places or go bold and cover large areas with shimmers, today’s metallic paints go beyond gold and silver. Restraint is needed, however, as the “bling,” will be easy to overdo. Pick just one room or two, and enjoy.

Border

Bring a shine to the upper part of a wall, along a chair rail or under a plate rack with a solid line or stenciled border painted with metallic wall paint. Beautiful when hit with indirect light or the flicker of candlelight, a border of metallic paint adds that hint of glamor to any room that needs a little drama. Metallic paint accents are especially effective when used with a coordinating base wall color. For example, use a warm terracotta-colored wall paint and a copper metallic paint. A metallic paint border is a good choice for a dining room.

Checkerboard Pattern

Make a bold statement with a large silver-metallic and flat-black checkerboard pattern. Ideal to use on one wall in a family rec room or “man cave,” the silver metallic paint gives the whole room a theme to build upon. A suitable backdrop for a home bar, pool table or media room, it’s a design that requires only some painter’s tape and patience to achieve.

Stripes

Paint stripes in a child’s bedroom or a nursery with a colored metallic paint. A bit of striping goes a long way, so stripe only one or two walls in a similar shade as the wall paint, varying the size of the stripes from large to narrow for a fun, light-catching treatment. With the paint colors basically identical, the metallic element in the stripes adds drama without the chaos some people attribute to a striped pattern.
