Drawing and Painting Media :: Art
Drawing and Painting Media Pencils Are Ace:- Pencils are classified by their hardness (H) and Blackness (B) and range from 9H to 9B. An HB pencil is in the middle as itÃ¢â¬â¢s both hard and black, and is good for general sketching. A harder pencil (like a 2H) is better for precise, technical drawings as it wonÃ¢â¬â¢t smudge so easily. 1) Pencils are made from a mixture of graphite (a form of carbon) and clay. 2) Coloured pencils come in a range of colours and a variety of hardnesses. The softer ones are best for laying even, flat colour and are less likely to break. Inks, Paints, Pastels, Dry-transfer LetteringÃ¢â¬ ¦ Also Ace:- 1) Inks are pigments suspended in water or solvent. TheyÃ¢â¬â¢re good for colour infilling, background washes and writing. 2) Gouache is a type of opaque paint, which is ideal for producing flat areas of colour, or highlights on renderings (e.g. coats of plaster, mortar, etc.). 3) Pastels come in two varieties Ã¢â¬â oil and chalk. Chalk pastel is particularly good for producing backgrounds on renderings, or adding tone and shading. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s easily blended using your fingers or cotton wool. 4) Dry-Transfer lettering is applied with pressure from a waxed translucent sheet onto drawings or prototype models. It comes in various typefaces, sizes, styles and colours. Airbrushes Blow A Mist Of Ink:- 1) Airbrushes blow a fine mist of ink from a reservoir onto an image area, using compressed air from a compressor or a Ã¢â¬Ëpower packÃ¢â¬â¢ (can of compressed air). 2) ItÃ¢â¬â¢s a time-consuming medium Ã¢â¬â you have to mask all the areas you donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to airbrush using a low tack clear film and a craft knife. Plus you need loads of practice to do it well. 3) You can get really great photo-realistic results, if you know what youÃ¢â¬â¢re doing. There are excellent examples of airbrushing on various record/CD sleeves, posters and adverts. 4) Airbrushing effects can also be achieved with some computer packages, e.g. Adobe Photoshop. Felt Pens And Markers Ã¢â¬â Water-Based Or Spirit-Based:- Water-based pens arenÃ¢â¬â¢t suitable for large areas because they dry quickly and leave streaks. 1) Fine-liners come in a variety of thicknesses and colours. TheyÃ¢â¬â¢re great for outlining drawings.
