When mildew is encountered, it must be removed thoroughly by washing with a mild bleach and TSP solution. It is imperative that all bleach residue be removed by rinsing with water. When painting metal surfaces, all corrosion and rust must be removed; prime with the appropriate FPE metal primer. When painting wooden surfaces, knots must be sealed with shellac to prevent bleeding before priming.

TIP: KIDDIE POOLS FOR ADULTSOne of the few disadvantages of working with great brilliant enamels like Hollandlac and ECO is that pigments in both of these coatings are extremely finely ground, very much like automobile paints and therefore these paints tend to reveal airborne contamination (the type of dust particles that float in the air of even the cleanest homes) to a much greater degree than coarsely ground, lower quality coatings. Interesting to discover a marketing advantage offered by low quality coatings which is not yet being extolled by the big boxes!

The use of a fan during this air-cleansing period is recommended as it is the circulation of air over water which effectively cleanses the air. The fan and heat/air conditioning system should be shut off immediately before beginning application of coatings and kept off for two hours after completion of paint application in order to prevent air movement before the paint sets up. (Exhaust fans required when working with solventborne coatings should not be shut off.)

Unpainted surfaces and those previously painted with waterborne finishes: After surface preparation, apply one coat appropriate FPE Primer/Undercoat, use FPE or ECO Primer for wood, Primer AC for ferrous metal, Key Primer for non-ferrous metals and plastics. Primer coat should be sanded with 220 grit paper and tacked clean before receiving two thin, even coats of HOLLANDLAC Brilliant 98. Allow each coat to dry overnight. For added durability, apply two primer coats before painting or a third finish coat.

On surfaces previously painted with oil-based paint: Surfaces painted with an oil finish, which are sound and do not need significant preparation, may be painted without priming. Apply HOLLANDLAC Brilliant 98 following a light sanding and thorough cleaning to remove dust and foreign material. Painted surfaces that do require heavy sanding or scraping should be cleaned and then treated with FPE Oil Primer/Undercoat. Then apply two thin coats of HOLLANDLAC Brilliant 98.

As a beginner it can be very difficult to understand the terminology regarding oil paint colors, and you can easily get confused with the variety of available tube colors. This guide will help you choose a simple palette of oil paints for beginners, to take away the stress and help you get started on your first painting project. We also have suggestions for a smaller palette of colors if you want to see if oil painting is for you.

The first term you have to understand when you are purchasing oil paint colors as a beginner artist, is pigment. It is the pigments in the paint that gives the paint its color. Traditionally they were usually made from minerals or plants. Now many modern chemicals are used.

Paints can be made from just one pigment, or more often, from two or three different pigments. This can make choosing your palette even more confusing. Manufacturers usually give you the names of the pigments in their oil paint on their website. This is useful when you get more experienced and want to extend your painting palette. When choosing oil paints for beginners it is better to select those with a single pigment so that you can better understand how each pigment behaves..

The pigment is a physical property of oil paints, but each tube color also has a unique combination of three other properties: hue, saturation, and value. It is important to know these properties of each color on your palette in order to match the colors of nature in the most efficient way.

Note: hue is also a term used to describe a particular paint that has been manufactured from a combination of pigments to simulate another more expensive or unavailable pigment, or to create a mix that is more convenient to use than using its component pigments.

Oil paints for beginners can also create confusion about which quality of colors to buy. My suggestion for beginners is to just get the cheapest oil paint you can find to start with and play around with lots of paint on your palette. What you do with it is 50 times more important than the type of paint you use. The more you play the faster you will learn. The more paint you put out on your palette the faster you will learn to develop color harmonies.

Incidentally, Deb, on one of my favorite trips to the Getty they were displaying two versions of this painting. (There was also an oil sketch.) Quite amazing! Every detail of the full version was replicated in the half-sized version. I think I would have preferred to own the smaller one.

another idea is something I did a few years back. I had this relentless longing to get my hands on some genuine Volkonskoite green paint made in Russia by Master Class. So Jessica and I got Alex (Gigalot) to buy a couple of tubes and ship them to us. So what if it cost me a bit more, it is my most prized tube of paint that I have

Michael Harding oil paints (view at Dick Blick) are the top pick for their rich pigmentation, creamy texture, and high-quality experience. Another popular choice is Sennelier oil paints (view at Jackson Art). They are a good value, offer a buttery texture, and are steeped in artistic history.

Durable and versatile, oil paint is a classic medium that has stood the test of time for hundreds of years. Oil colors are comprised of pigments suspended in a binder, generally linseed oil. They are very opaque, but they can be thinned to varying degrees of transparency. Oils also have a slow drying time, so artists can rework the paint for a longer amount of time.

Oil Colors contain a full pigment load suspended in a binder, generally linseed oil or another drying oil such as safflower oil, poppyseed oil, or walnut oil. Use them on stretched canvas or boards that have been primed to accept oil paints. Usually made with a single pigment, professional-grade paints mix more cleanly and have better tinting strength than lower-grade paints.

Water Mixable Oil Colors are similar to regular oil colors, but they contain a modified oil binder that can be cleaned up with water. Once dry, the paint layer resists water just as conventional oil colors do, with a drying time similar to that of traditional oils. Clean-up is easier, requiring none of the solvents which can have harmful side effects. Water miscible oils can be mixed with conventional oil colors and mediums, but the resulting mixture may lose its water-mixable characteristics. They can also be thinned with water, but doing so will tend to make the paint film duller and will cause a color shift from wet to dry. Use of water miscible mediums is recommended.

Alkyds are made with an alkyd resin binder that has been modified with a nonyellowing drying oil for optimum color retention, excellent durability, and rapid drying time. Alkyds' main advantage over oil paints is that they may dry to the touch in 12-48 hours, and paintings employing fairly thin applications may be ready to varnish in as little as 30 days. Drying times and gloss level vary by brand. Use alkyds with an alkyd medium or other traditional Oil Painting Mediums. Clean up with mineral spirits.

Oils are beloved by artists for many reasons. They offer great versatility. Oils can be very opaque, or they can be thinned with a solvent to varying levels of transparency. They have a slow-drying time, during which their colors do not change, allowing the artist to rework, correct, and even scrape off areas of paint.

This means that the paint is applied in one layer. A good way of thinking about this technique is that a painting can be completed in one sitting, and does not require waiting time before adding another layer.

This is a more complex method of painting with oils. It is also thought of as a more traditional approach. Here the artist applies many layers of paint, adjusting the opacity of the layers to create different effects. Indirect painting can result in very luminous tones and colors.

This is a traditional rule of oil painting. "Fat" paint has more oil in it, and "lean" paint has less oil in it. As artists paint layers onto paintings, they make each progressive layer "fatter" than the one before by adding more medium. The more oil the paint has the more flexible it is. When the overpainting is more flexible than the underpainting, the paint is less likely to crack as it dries.

Impasto refers to a thicker application of paint (think Vincent Van Gogh) which has physical dimensionality. Use caution with this technique as thick layers of paint have a tendency to crack as they dry. Integrating smaller areas of this technique into a painting works best.

A finished painting should be coated with a protective varnish. However, it takes six months to a year for an oil painting to dry thoroughly enough to apply this finishing layer. In the meantime, store your work in a dust free, but not dark storage area. 041b061a72
