We have launched a limited edition of pigments package, which our lab’s art materials experts selected from 4500 colors of the pigments. The package contains 6 colors, including red and green that is perfect for the Christmas and holiday season. The pigments are packed in the pretty little bottle, not only is suitable for a gift but also for your work. Please enjoy and feel the various textures and different character that each pigment has.
Speaking of pigments, some people might think that PIGMENT TOKYO only has pigments for painting. However, as introduced in the previous article, you can create various expressions by changing the medium and the techniques.
This time, we apply the technique from the workshop “Creating Original Paints” to make Christmas Ornaments. Please try and share your work with us.
Firstly, prepare the unpainted wooden ornaments.
Secondly, covering the surface with acrylic gesso to avoid penetration of paints and to produce a good color. (Please paint animal glue once when you paint directly onto woods.) For the metallic colors such as gold and silver, applying the black acrylic gesso creates even better color.
To create a watercolor paints, knead pigments with gum Arabic, using a marble stone and Muller. This time, we put a little amount of acrylic medium after making the paints in order to prevent color fading.
For those of you who do not have these utensils, you can substitute them with a paper palette and palette knife. In that case, please mix well to avoid lumps. For Suihi pigments, you can easily pulverize them with mortar.
Paint the ornament, and put a coat spray or varnish for a strong film coating.
You can create a sparkling ornament by sprinkling an effect pigment when the paint is half-dry.
You can also mix the limited edition pigments with other pigments from our shop.
Of course, you can use the pigments for any craft other than ornaments. Please enjoy the handmade Christmas party with PIGMENT TOKYO’s winter-limited edition package.
