I loooooove FB. Not FB. But everything FB has brought to the reborning world, specifically the window into other artists’ studios and processes. I found this of one of my idol reborners, Jacqueline Kramer (incredible artist with one of the most realistic mottles I’ve ever seen). So when I saw this pic, I just knew I had to post.
Her mottle process.
I love being able to deduce paints. I actually have all these on hand. And the three mottle shades are the ones I use on my babies. BUT the flesh foundation tones (which I have) I would have NEVER thought to mottle on, which is what I presume she does with that third mottle sponge (and the mottle sponges, brilliant. Mine are so small! LOL!) I cannot wait to try this on my babies!!
Have I mentioned how much I love the innovation and unique techniques in this industry. I love that this artform is still so new, that evolution happens through sheer trial and error.
