Long winded , and unnecessarily made public post about paint brushes…
I’d say the most interesting thing about having the “PAiNT WiTH ME” events have been finding the right brushes. Its been the most inconsistent thing I’ve done so far.
Personally, I like using my hands. If you’ve seen me on a studio day.. I’m usually covered in paint; often looking like the kid that still eats the paste 🤷🏼♀️
There are very few brushes that I enjoy using to make my circles and dots and actually Ive ended up using my Pro- makeup brushes from when I did SPFX – Body Painting.
With these classes I use acrylic and I’m so use to watercolor at this point. So, the brushes I’ve been getting combined with the paint, I’ll say I haven’t felt 100 with my connection to the materials.
So , after a few hours yesterday on the internet, I finally decided to order makeup brushes that are similar to mine and the base brushes I would use for murals.
I haven’t used them yet but I’d say in this time of ordering brushes , the inner me feels a special satisfaction “like job well done”. Which feels like a celebration post of letting you know. As if I would be letting you know when something exciting is going on in my life art wise , travel , shows etc🤷🏼♀️
Oh the picture is me … and the time I accidentally rinsed my paint brushes in my drinking jar..and hadn’t notice until I started drinking it… also, you’d think I wouldn’t of continued drinking the water but I did .. maybe pushing the testing of non toxic watercolors a little far but hydration is important🤷🏼♀️
