Mint Green Wash By Nikki Holland

This is the technique I use when applying my washes and as every artist is different they each have their own special way of doing the wash.

I find some vinyl more pink than others and as I personally like to start with a nice pale colour undertone, I found by applying a green/mint wash as your first coat helps to dull down the pink in the vinyl.

Please use this as a guide to help you with your washes.

~ Mix a small amount of Phthalo Green 05 or a similar green with a generous amount of odourless thinners until you get a very watery mix.

~ Using your 1/2 Maxine Mop Brush apply your wash generously coving the whole surface.

~ Using a clean makeup sponge, pounce your wash to give you a nice even coat. You don't want big spots of green, so the more you pounce the smoother the paint will look. Brush out any creases that have a build up of paint. Here is the difference in colour after the green / mint wash was applied. Now you are ready for your flesh coats.

Happy Reborning  :)
