Acrylic Paint Mixing & Dry Brushing Techniques

Acrylic Paint Mixing & Dry Brushing Techniques.

A video showing basic mixing of acrylic paints and dry brushing effects. Sorry for the angle of the video camera, but I hope there is some benefit in the video for some folk starting out with mixing colours and painting concrete items with acrylic paint. I will post up more detailed videos which feature paint mixing and brushing techniques in the future.

Check out the videos on the Dramamask Evolution YouTube channel. There are many paint effects videos, molding & casting videos and much more relating to all kinds of arts and crafts, plus other stuff too! 🙂

Paint Effects | Aged Stone

Using the dry brush technique to create aged stone paint effects. In this video, an undercoat of very light grey acrylic paint has been applied to a concrete casted planter. The undercoat is left to dry for a 24 hour period for the acrylic paint to fully dry or cure, ready for applying the dry brushed layers of a very dark grey (almost black) acrylic paint. This is a relatively simple and effective technique and can be quickly applied, yielding authentic aged stone paint effects, perhaps similar to that of very old stone artefacts which can be found in churches, museums and such.

Paints are acrylic and the colours used are black and white, which are mixed together at varying quantities to produce the grey tones.

Faux Aged Bronze Effect For Restoration

Faux Aged Bronze Effect For Restoration

Faux aged bronze effect using acrylic bronze paint. The bronze metallic effect paint is applied to the material, which in this case, is a frame which will be used to support a large foot stool. The frame is primed with black enamel paint and the bronze finish is applied using the dry brush technique.

The dry brush technique is applied using minimal paint on the paint brush and brushed onto the material, or ‘dusted’ onto the material. This creates a kind of worn or aged look.

This video was made at ‘No Naked Windows’, Bruton, Somerset, United Kingdom.
