I received a question about my techniques and mediums I use, so I thought I’d write a little spill about what I use to create my pieces.

I used acrylics on the hair, horns and jewelry, and oils on the skin, background, and dress. I started with acrylics and moved into the oils. I was experimenting with what I could do with both mediums. Found that I couldn’t use acrylics over the oils but I could use the oils over the acrylics quite easily.

I was using the new water soluble oils, but I didn’t actually use any water to dilute the paint. Found that the paint wouldn’t work the way that I wanted it, so I use special linseed oil to get the oils to flow better. The only thing that was good about the water soluble paints was that I could clean everything up with just water.

I’ve now moved over to original oils, because I found that I didn’t need to use all the solvents get the same effect as water soluble oils. I just used linseed oil to make washes and get the paint to flow, and for clean up I use “The Masters’ Brush Cleaner”, cleans the oil right out of my brushes. No harmful chemicals like turpentine or odorless mineral solvents. I’ve also found that if your absolutely desperate and need to clean your brushes and degreaser soap will work in a pinch, but I wouldn’t suggest it for long time use.
