How to draw with acrylic paints? This question has long tormented those who are afraid to take a brush in their hands, considering the drawings on the nails "a gift of God." However, you just have to try - and the drawings themselves will start to get better and better, because the main thing is practice. At the initial stage, not all nails may be the same. Some of the drawings are larger, some are smaller, the colors are brighter there, and there is more dull, but this is only for the first time. A little later, everything will come out just fine!
Of course, the easiest way is to go to a beauty salon and after a while have beautiful nails, paying a certain amount. Otherwise, the money may remain with you, plus you will receive a huge positive from the work itself, from putting your ideas into practice.
Before you draw with acrylic paints on nails, you should consult about paints and purchase at least a simple palette. In addition to paints, brushes and sticks for drawing are needed. All this can be bought either in a specialized store, or ordered on the Internet. If possible, on the issue of the paint manufacturer, you can consult with friends who do this. When painting on nails with acrylic paints will become commonplace, the color palette can be replenished.
A beginner who wants to know how to draw with acrylic paints should pay attention to the fact that the paints can be on an acetone basis or water. Water-based paints mix better with each other and are easy to wash. The advantage of acetone acrylic paints is their greater resistance, and water paints still need to be coated with fixative layers.
You can choose the simplest thin brushes - to learn to draw with them is not at all difficult, but thicker brushes will be mastered later. Beginner brushes include numbers zero, one, and two.
If you still do not know how to draw with acrylic paints, you can practice on paper - here you can master the brush and hone the drawing. Since not everything will turn out right away, then acetone is needed at hand, which will fix the flaws. And the final stage is nail decoration. It includes rhinestones, stickers, modeling, foil, crumbs and many, many beautiful things.
How to draw with acrylic paints - tips for dummies
- To get started, look at the shape of the nail and try to imagine the pattern that you would like to see. Long strips should not be done on long nails - this will lengthen the nail even more, which does not look very beautiful, rather neglected. Short nails should not contain transverse stripes, otherwise they will look even shorter and wider. For the first time, you can try abstraction - there is always a great opportunity not to correct errors - as if it were intended. With more skill you can make more complex compositions. If there are no ideas at all, they can be seen on the Internet.
- Immediately lay out the necessary objects around you - a palette, brushes, a container of water and a rag, varnishes and paints, a fixative.
- The drawing process begins with the application of the base of the varnish and its complete drying. Next, with paints we create the desired pattern and wait. Drawings are best drawn on all nails at once so that the paint does not dry out, then dry. Drawing should be "layered" - this is already a kind of fantasy, especially the perception of the image. For example, first comes the base of the picture, then the details, then the small additions. After the main drawing is already there, you can apply decoration - rhinestones, sparkles, etc.
- The last stage is fixing the picture with either ordinary transparent varnish or a special fixative.
And that’s all - simple, economical and interesting. In addition, having learned how to draw drawings on nails, you can practice your acquaintances, and subsequently make it a good run-in.
