I’ve gone through this process and it goes something like this: I open up my fridge and get to work. I find the colors I have for a project, I spray them. Then I get out my brush and start working to get the effect I want. I start by taking my acrylic paint and applying it to the parts. I use the acrylic paint to build up the texture and I use that texture to get a little swirl to get the effect I wanted. That’s all I need to make that work. I always say that spraying has no effect on the finished result. I just let the paint dry. Once it’s dry, I repeat the process on the whole thing because if I’m just spraying it onto a piece then it’ll just look like I’m mixing it into the piece somehow.
Do you take color for the exterior of your house? Yes, I do. I do almost every painting I do of the exterior of my house. For this project, I’ve put the outside walls and the exterior roof and the patio, on top of a dark grey plastic wall. I can have the outside walls and the exterior roof done in the time it takes to light and paint the interior. Also, I have a black plastic frame set on the outside of the house for all of my windows. That black plastic does help the outside look more natural. I’ve always been influenced by architecture, and I always wanted my house to look like it was built. That’s kind of why I chose that color scheme.
When you spray paint things do you use a watercolor paint (or do you use a different kind of paint)? I don’t use watercolor paint because I don’t like the results (for me at least). I use a wet brush to apply my paint. I also like that the paint is very dry from being wet for so long. Since I don’t want my colors to transfer or be washed out, I don’t use watercolor paint on my exterior walls or the exterior roof because I would probably have the same result. I use a paint I have on hand to create my exterior wall colors. I’ve got two colors for my exterior walls: a bright orange yellow and a bright blue green. I use black paint and a paint called Zinc-based White. That’s the paint they use on the walls. I do these white walls using my spray bottle and an airbrush. My air brush works great for these white walls because it has that water and brush-on effect.
