You can use any any surface are ceramic palette. You need the masking tape to mask the people, to get a clear border, a paper towel to wipe the extra water from depression and a cup to keep the water handy.

For this step, I am using a flat number 6 dendritic branch. So for this guy, I'm mixing the Prussian blue and a small amount of black. I'm using creating map2 to paint the sky. For that top part of the grading, I have an extra small and moral go push in Kolkata, bit of black. And we're going to create a creating by starting from the top to the bottom. Let's see what's going on. As I have mentioned, that I create is creating from top to bottom. So with that thing, I am applying the darker stone on the top. You can move your brushes horizontally. But here I'll make it more interesting that this store data compression technique. Just hold your brush competently, but light pressure and guide to move it in circular motion. And then imitate phase with the moment of brush. Up to applying the darkest tone on the top, I'll keep adding titanium bite into the mixture to create a gradient of a lighter tone. Keep adding go white gutter, can bend it down. Oh, and here is a liquid happy oxygen. In barbarous Works FEA, don't make mistakes. We have happy accidents. So let's embrace it. This is the reason I love working with this medium, the acrylic medium, because it's so very forgiving. Meet him and it dries quickly so they could guide them mistakes vis-a-vis.
