Warp Your Mind with Oils!

We are on our way to Reapercon!  Or, by the time this is posted, we might be there already.

Once Fort Wappel is all set up, I look forward to doing hours of painting demos, and one medium I want to show off is oils!

They have proven to be so useful, especially when working on large amounts of figures all at once.  I am hoping to be able to demonstrate how you can still blend the paint on the surface of the figure, even hours after it has been first applied.

I will also show how to glaze over wet oils... yeah, you heard that right!  It was something that I have tried to show during the last few videos for the Patreon Page.  While it sounds crazy, it does not work all that differently than if you were glazing acrylics.

However, you have a much easier time feathering out the edges of the glazes.  Also, this will work just fine over dry oil paint as well.  In effect, you can "buff out" the edges of a glaze or a set of new brush strokes over the dry oil paint.

So be sure to head on over to Fort Wappel while you are there and paint along with us!

Some of the latest painting videos are on the Patreon page, available at the $5, $10 and $15 levels!
