blending colors

Post by sancelot on Fri Oct 19, 2012 8:50 am

Hi everybody,

I am brand new, here , I made some designs available on the skin and on paper.

I am facing problem, regarding blending colors, I suppose my problem is coming from the paint products maybe.

I would like to make lollipops like this one on the skin :

My major problem is how to blend colors ????? Can you give me some tips in order achieving this design ???


Is the paint texture important ?

Which kind of paint will you use ?

Can we use kryolan aquacolor with brushes ? or is it only for background ?



I have in my hands :
fardel color creams
kryolan aquacolor
and snazaroo cakes

Regards,
S.Ancelot

You can have a look at my designs in my public facebook bodypaint album
or facebook group :

Here's a good video on blending but I don't think it would help on your lollipops. You might be better off using a one-stroke technique for those.

I would search the forum archives as blending has been rehashed a few times here, as well as the qualities of the different types of makeup available.

However, I can tell you that blending is not what will get you the organized striation of that lollipop. Look up one-stroke techniques in the search, I believe that's what you're wanting.

Thanks,

You are right, I think I can do this using onestroke, this is a technic I know well....

however, using onestring, I blend two colors, I will try to obtain the desired effect

have you checked out the one stroke cakes?? They have thin slivers of several colors lined up ready to load your brush

I was thinking that would be good with a one-stroke and a smallish brush, too. Something like a neon rainbow one-stroke cake would look good, then put the spiral in with a thin brush?
