Acrylic painting became popular among artists across the world after they found it to be helpful in their painting tasks, as this kind of painting dries up fast. Through a series of brightly hued paintings titled Lost & Found, Max Sansing examines the human desire for happiness and peace through a distinct sense of place. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, the artist is known for vibrant murals, which you can explore on Instagram , and smaller-scale artworks (shown here) that are rooted in the culture that’s unique to the city.
There are several different types of paint material options available for interior painting projects including flat, oyster, semi- gloss and oil-based gloss. Flat paint is generally the cheapest and lacks any kind of gloss, hence the name. Flat is easily marked up by fingerprints and easily shows dirt and wear so it isn’t easy to keep looking fresh. Flat paint is great for a first coat, especially if you need to cover up a darker color because you are going to a lighter color but consider where you intend to put flat before you commit to it because it isn’t a good fit for every room.
Your first task is to let your paint mistake dry completely. Then start the uneven paint removal with a rough grit sanding being very careful not to sand into any plastic detail of your model. I will cut the sandpaper into very small pieces and hold them or glue them to wooden “tools” to get into small places. I will also use paint thinner to soften paint buildup around detailed areas keeping in mind that you do not want to ruin the plastic.
Clean the paint so that it is free from grease and dust. Lay the painting completely flat and then dampen a little bit of cotton with clean water. Always dry the painting and gently remove any sort of cotton fibres that are stuck on the surface of the paint.
There are many different kinds of painting mediums for the painter’s use. It is very important that you understand the exact uses, limitations and safety measures of the mediums you choose to use. It would be accurate to say that painters tend to have their own favorite art mediums. Mediums are used to create special effects. For example, damar and copal add shine to oil paint and they also make the color richer. Distilled turps and linseed oil are less complex. If a painter needs to retouch dried matte he or she will opt for varnish.
