How-To Fridays - Mixing Acrylic Paint

Hi, it’s me.

Welcome to another How-to Friday.

Today I have a couple of interesting articles for acrylic painters.

The first one is on Making your own Fluid Acrylic Paints. Something that will help save money if you don’t use acrylic paint on a regular basis. You can mix up as little as what you need.

This next article is on Mixing Acrylic Paints. It is geared toward beginners, however the information provided is good to know.

Enjoy reading!

How-To Friday – Lessons in Value

Hi, it’s me.

I got some great videos today on painting values. They all demonstrate paintings using one colour. Two of them use black ink and one uses Payne’s Grey.

When using only one colour, you need to rely on the values in the paintings. Value measures how light or how dark a hue is.  White is high in value and black is low.

Give it a try.
