Great portrait Richard..please tell me more about enamel application in paintings
Thank you for your comment.Enamel paints are oil based and as such can be used in the same way as oils, they can even be mixed with oil paints they are however much more fluid than oils which I find helpfull. Try mixing acrylics with the enamels and see what happens. The acrylics are water based and as you know oil and water will not mix, but they will dry.Pour turpentine into the enamels and even add a little water, remember this is trial and error, but the effects are interesting.If you place your work in the sun to dry it should cause a ripple effect and this can be seen in my work entitled ‘’Dry Paddock’’( bottom left corner of art work) . Remeber to paint with your work horizontal as you can then work from all 4 sides and the paint will not run.
