+ + + I'm using acrylic paint Liquitex. + + +

+ + + Soft Body Acrylic Paint : Light Magenta + + +
It is my favorite color. It is easy to paint because it is soft type! A very pretty color :)
I classify the color that I made with oneself into bottles and keep it!
I am usable for years if I make it a lot ;)
+ + + base coat : Liquitex Gesso chalk + + +
amazon : http://www.amazon.ca/Liquitex-Gesso-chalk-500ml-japan/dp/B00A7M7RIO
+ + + Masking tape + + +
I paint many times and repeat the same color to get rid of uneven coloring.
Therefore it is necessary to protect the place that I do not want to paint with with masking tape.
I tried some, these two easy-to-use.

Because the writing brush is expendable supplies,
I buy it without being particular about the maker. A cheap thing is enough.
I call this "BOKASHI-AMI (Literal translation "Gradate-Net")" in Japan.
Though I checked it, I did not understand the name in the foreign country.
This is the tool which is popular so as to learn it by a class of the art of the school in Japan when it is small.
I attach the thing which weakened usual acrylic paints with water, and there is gradation when I rub it.

"does the canvas not cut?"
A canvas does not cut if I do not lay emphasis too much.
"tear it off, does paint not come off together?"
I sometimes come off together…
Therefore I put a cut in a border of tape and the paint with a cutter beforehand.
+ + + Two kinds of final coatings + + +
The paint which I painted with comes off and finishes the last not to fade with a coat of the whole.
If a picture dries enough, I paint with "Permanent Matte Varnish".
If it dries, I paint with "Soluvar Matte Varnish".
"Soluvar Matte Varnish" protects a work from a change in quality and a change of color by the light of the sun.

When it is difficult to understand sentences, I'm sorry because it is not good at English.
I am glad to get a lot of questions every day if becoming your reference.
Please draw the picture happily! :)
