Note: They will need a 10"x10" square of old cotton t-shirt for a paint rag & remind them to keep brushes clean between colors while painting by using the two-water-dish & blotting technique demo'd in class. It really is the best/easiest way to accomplish this. Oh, and clean, blot, then shape the brush's bristles and leave out in the air to completely dry before storing.
Infinite Grays (for shadows, etc.):
- Fill in the "pure" colors (the top & bottom rows); let dry.
- Work with one "pair" @ a time, pre-wetting the "in-between" rectangle and spotting on (@ appropriate end) the pure colors, allowing them to bleed together in the middle. The student may need to add more pure color(s) to get this to happen. Let dry if blocks are very close, otherwise proceed to next pair.
- Once dry keep in paint kit for reference.
