Am I the one one who might watch Heather Ross sketch and paint all day? I’ve been so impressed by her Drawing and Illustrating Fundamentals sequence. The opposite day I gave a couple of of her easy strategies for capturing ranunculus flowers and strawberries a strive. I’d discovered a silver leather-based clutch whereas thrift looking for $2. It was in good condition and for that worth if I ruined it, no massive deal. This complete challenge took a day espresso break to finish, and was such a calming factor to do! However don’t restrict your design inspiration to flowers, what about geometrics, triangles, some inspiring painterly quotes?
The right way to Make a Painted Thrift Retailer Clutch
- Purse or clutch from the thrift retailer- you possibly can use canvas, however a clean leather-based is straightforward to color on.
- Acrylic paints in assorted colours
- Massive and small paintbrushes
- Scrap paper to combine your colours on
- Inspiration flowers
Step OneBe sure the bag you’ll be portray is clear, wipe with a moist fabric if wanted. Use a pencil to make mild marks to ascertain the place you’ll be portray. I didn’t erase these marks after I was finished, most of them have been painted over, so maintain them mild and also you received’t have an issue.
Step TwoSqueeze out somewhat of every paint shade you intend to make use of on scrap paper, a paper plate, or wax paper. Go away somewhat area in between them to permit room to combine them collectively.
I began my flowers by portray a base shade over the entire space of every flower (utilizing some flowers I had at house for reference, I selected yellow-orange, pink, and a purple for the strawberries). In a couple of instances, I did a second coat to get the correct depth of shade.
Combine up darker and lighter variations of the bottom coloration so as to add shading. (Don’t get too caught up in making this good, have enjoyable with it.)
If you happen to determined to color on a particular picture fairly than flowers, use switch paper to hint the picture onto the bag (flippantly). Be sure you paint over the traces or rub them away while you’re performed with them.
