How to paint an assemblaged sculpture
Posted April 29, 2019 2:32:24This was a challenge for me.
My work is mostly in oil, so I had to figure out how to paint this without using oils and acrylics.
It’s kind of like an oil painting, but it’s done with watercolor.
I started with an old pair of earrings I found on eBay.
I put on a little bit of watercolors and acrylic paints to add some interest.
The earrings had a little silver foil on them, so that was the base to build on.
After a bit of experimentation, I decided to go with silver foil to give the earrings a little more colour.
I used a brush and some white paint to fill in the edges.
I did a bit more painting with the silver foil and it really helped bring out the design.
The earrings were a challenge to paint, because they were so heavy.
They were so thin, I had no idea how I was going to fill them in with the black paint.
So, I started to paint on them a little by painting a thin layer of the black on top of the silver.
It really helped.
I got a really good sense of the design, so it was really easy to work on.
After the earring was painted, I painted the rest of the piece with the watercolours.
Then I used some paint thinner and a brush to make the eyes.
I had some gold and silver paint, and the gold paint was on top to help make the eye look bigger and more dramatic.
I was really happy with how the earpieces turned out.
The colours really complement the art, so the ear pieces are really wearable and wearable in a way that you can’t really do with traditional art.
I’m really happy to have found this resource for a project.
I love learning about different things, and this is a great resource to get started.
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
