How do I make my paintings?

 

Al my works are made on a heightened table.  This way the material that I use is more accessible to me.

How do I paint with Acrylics? 

My brushes are somewhat protected at the end with tape.  If I work on cardboard, I let it firstly being treated with caparol.  This prevents that the paint penetrates too much in the cardboard.  For this and to put everything on its spot I am relaying on help.  On an old dish, a piece of glass, plastificated dish or a paint tray, I let spurt my colours.  In the middle, I mix them.  I use small amounts of water to thin the paints if the paint from the tube is too thick.  A cloth lies also always in the neighbourhood to wipe off the brush.  Acryl is water bases and dries fast!  Consequently, it's important to wash my brushes right after using them!

How do I paint aquarelle ?

I asked someone to put a fattening on the end of my paintbrush.  (with tape or a fattening that is used for writhing)  This way I can control my brush more easily.  I use an ordinary water paint-box that is placed on the height of my drawing.  In the box I let place a little pot with water.  To dry my brush, a cloth is placed beside the box.

How do I paint on silk ?

For this technique I need some more help.  I choose a subject, and let it draw by someone with guta, on a silk cloth tightened on a cadre. (this makes that the paint does not spill over the lines)  To mangle the colours I also need some help.  To see if a colour is goed, I test it on a little part of silk held aside. Also I let adapt my brush the same way as when I aquarelle.  I use also the little pot with water and the cloth to clean the brush.

How do I paint masks ?

Plaster is poured into a mould of a mask. (mould bought in a shop)  On this I draw a picture in pencil (darken the lines very good).  Over this I paint a layer of white lack (the pencil shines a little bit thru the lack)  On the lack I paint with special paint for this surface.  The sparkles are applied by holding the tube in my mouth and slowly pressing with my teeth.  A greyish blubber comes out of it.  When it dries only the sparkles stay visible.  The pencil and the brush are adapted the same way as when painting aquarelles.

How do I paint with bistre ?

On the end of my paintbrush I asked someone to put a fattening.  This way I can control my brush more easily.  (Same as when making aquarelles)  I let the woodbistre be diluted in different quantities of water.  This way I get different colour tints.  Further I use the same techniques as when painting aquarelles.

How do I draw with pencil ?

Just like the brushes there has been added a fattening to the end of a pencil.  To rub I use an oilpaint-brush.  Because it is harder then a normal brush (To aquarelle or silkpaint) I can easily create effects with it.

How do I draw with pen ?

The end of the pen is fattened in the same way as my brushes.

How do I make charcoaldrawings ?

I use a charcoal-pencil.  It resembles an ordinary pencil, but it is filled with charcoal.  Further I use the same technique as drawing with a pencil.

How do I draw with pastel?

At the end of the pastel's I let attach sticks.  The box is put in this way at my side, that I can easily reach it to change colours while drawing.

How do I make lace ?

On the end of bobbins there have been added a loop in iron wire.   I displace the bobbins by taking them by the loops with a hook.  (A knitting needle that we cut in two and then made a hook on the end.  I let it fatten on the end.)  On the end of every line I need someone to help to put a needle.

How is the brush adapted ?

I asked someone to put a fattening on the end of my paintbrush.  (with tape or a fattening that is used for writhing)  This way I can control my brush more easily.
