Painting - Spatter & Stipple Techniques - Help Requested
« on: October 03, 2023, 02:08:27 AM »
anyone have a preferred technique for spatter painting?   also, for stippling the spattered paint?

 

i tried an internet search but most demonstrations are geared towards big painting projects.

 

specifically interested in:

 

type of brush

 

type of tool to spray bristles

 

how thin to make the paint (acrylic vallejo)

 

how much of any additives (flow enhancer?)

 

how to stipple & blend the larger spatters to add a mottled look

 

anything else that will mke it work for me!

 

i'm hitting about 50% of my desired result just by "doing" - but cannot help think there's a more predictable way to get consistent random (!!!) results.

 

thanks

 

ps: cannot bring myself to use the term spLatter - seems all too icky.

Hi S.E., I've never actually tried reproducing the effect so I can't speak to the greater part of your question, but have you seen the Wingnut Wings page on reproducing German stipple camo?
