Which paints are good for lines vs blending

Post by Rampant on Mon Jan 16, 2012 2:56 pm

This might be FAQ question but I'll ask here, since I'm new.

I'm starting off in body painting (less faces and more for burlesque shows, etc) and I have a paradise palette set. I find most of the colors blend really easily and well... too well, when I need things to stay sharp.

What paints/colors/brands are crisp over other paints? Also... is there a particular technique to getting sharp lines?

You can read and be advised forever - but it is all about user ability. Some paints have more vicosity but I know talents who make any brand work perfectly.

Paradise is great alone. It will go over itself and you can create crisp perfect lines. Yes there are techniques in handling your brush. I suggest any investment is spent on better learning as opposed to buying more or new paints. Try "On Your Mark" DVD by Mark Reid. He uses only Paradise and in this DVD shows how to get excellent sharp lines.
