3 Ways to Blend Acrylic Paints Tutorial for beginners by JM Lisondra


hello everyone my name is John Magne Lisondra
and today I’m going to demonstrate on how to blend the acrylics my own ways so this
are the most common ways that I blend using acrylic paints. And the first one will be the wet-on-wet technique,
so in this technique we are going to use two different values of colors like this blue
here so I just paint it here and all you have to do is just add the other
value of color here which has different value like the lighter blue color and all you have
to do is to meet the two colors at the center in which we are going to blend it together
to achieve a smooth fuse between the two colors okay. so as you see guys I am putting it or
fusing it at the center to have a smoother blend. okay. So that’s it the wet-on-wet technique. The second one will be the wet-on-dry technique
in which as you see guys I have already here the blue background color which is already
dry and on this technique guys we only need to cover it with the desired color that we
are going to blend the background which is the as you see on the screen is the lighter
blue color so all we have to do is blend it until we get the perfect blend between the
two colors, the perfect fuse between the two colors. and this technique guys good when
you have a longer time painting just like when you paint the sky and all you have to
do is just paint the blue color first then you just have to add the lighter color later
after the paint dries. so that’s it guys that will be the second
method. and the last one for me will be tone one color blending or glazing in which you
have to use one color only like this blue here and then on the edge of the color you
just have to blend it using water guys but I don’t recommend using water, you need to
use the glazing medium because water will lessen the consistency of the acrylic binder
in which that is not good for conservation of your painting and I don’t recommend it. So just use the glazing medium if you have
so water guys. You can water but I tell you that it will
have a problem in the future. Ok that’s it guys, that will be the 3 ways
in color blending using acrylic, so if you have more ways then you can comment or suggest
