raised areas on cloaks?
« on: March 18, 2018, 08:38:41 PM »
Sorry finding it hard to explain, but having trouble...

How do people paint raise areas e.g an inside border, or fine embroidered decorations?

Don't trust myself to free hand, and brushing overs proving problematic. It difficult to keep the colour of the cloak and the raised area tidy and the colour strong along the edge, the more I try to correct it creates more mistakes/overlaps.

If your painting in lines and shapes then I always find using a longer brush head helps loads. As you can load it up with watered down paint and do long sweeping movements without keep needing to top up with paint.

I’ve also seen people do lines on robes and cloaks using paint pens or even sharpies. Also lining out your d sign with a pencil before you paint.

The other option is cheat, use a transfer on the cloak after you’ve painted it. Just soften the transfer with decal solution to make sure it drops into all the recesses nicely.

I would recommend "Wet blending" but its very time intensive. I generally go for "over brushing"

You can google / youtube them if you need help?

Ive just read your original post again and i think ive given you the wrong advice.

I was thinking "flowing cloak" not "Embroidery on cloak"

Is it a red cloak by any chance? Post a picture if you can becuase colours involved may determine which technique you need.

Marts suggestion of paint pens might be the way to go. Build up the colours slowly. The only getting to the actual colour on the edges.
