My first play with one stroke painting

Postby melhora » Sat May 15, 2010 5:51 pm

Ok all, well I am bit of an invalid at the moment... I have in infection in my leg, hence I can't walk to far and am on really strong antibiotics and panadine fort. :) great stuff but sends me to sleep... Soooo... in my awake time i decided to play with my new paints and brushs that i ordered after seeing Olga in action at HRTE i was inspired... so this is what i came up with.... :)

I have to say I am pretty chuffed at how they turned out :wink: :wink: :wink:

Wow Mel! they look fabulous! I love them. They look airbrushed :)

Thanks all... I actually got the paints of ebay... I think I got the 12 tubes for about $20 and then i got some brushes as well, brushes aren't the best quality but they are ok for practising and getting a feel for it. I got a tip from a youtupe video to use an old CD as your paint pallet... it works for me, and i am recycling at the same time!! ;) I reckon they would also make good mixing trays for gel too?? just a thought lol
