Great tutorial, Fairfox! Easiest one I've seen...I like your tip about using bigger splits to make smaller ones, might be what a person like me needs to start with...maybe I will get brave enough to try it yet!  study  Thank you.

I absolutely love your container. Love that the middle compartments are there. I noticed you have lots of one strokes I think they are. By any chance are you willing to share which combos you use the most and for what. Lol. I am barely going to invest in cakes and one strokes. Thank you for you help and love the video :0)

I use all my onestrokes for the same designs....

if you really look, you'll see a 1stroke is just a smaller or tighter spectrum of a regular rainbow.so you have warm, cool, light, bright, dark or bold colors, as well as pearl, matte, glitter and simmer..

you can do any design either with the darker end as a natural outline, or a lighter end as a natural highlight to add depth and dimension in a single blended swipe.

a good example is dolphin...many choose to do them using some form of teal or blue...but I usually do mine in orange, neon pink, rainbow...gives it a candy feel and look.

the blue onestrokes aren't limited to traditional blue things like ocean waves, because anything can be blue-flowers, icecream, rain drops, butterflies, etc, etc, etc.



when I picked out my one strokes, I tried to pick 1 for each color....so red-a fire cake is good....green-a leaf is good...blue-peacock is a nice one.
I also picked some for the girls, since the number 1 speed saver for me is the princess crown, and what is easier than swiping on a band of the girls fav color and adding glitter?nothing! so I have some combos of purple, pink, teal,red, blue, green...

Thank you nikkili26. Would it be cheaper to buy full colors or like splits or rainbow cakes to make one strokes?

Hey Newbie, These are great questions. Nikkili26 and I have a similar approach. I make sure I have one for every color- then usually a couple that revolve. I have painted next to others that have 20-30+ splits, and while I can appreciate wanting that "perfect" color, my kit is geared for speed. I want to set up fast, tear down fast, find what I am looking for fast. Having them all in one block, and having the spacial relationship stay the same helps me a lot with that. Before you start cutting your own, I would buy one or two and put them in your kit. Learn some designs and get used to them, then you'll know what you like and what you want to do with them. Happy painting!

Love this video and the bead case with cotton swabs in the center is brilliant.
