H2o + color + palette equals art?

Paint, painting, watercolor

Well why not, this shall be the test number 2.

Okay, I’m still kinda sure that’s y’all need a proper paper to do this.
All my paintings go all mushy and wrinkled after drying.

Maybe there is some real paper out there, have to try it someday.

In other day I was watching adventures of the Moomin family.
I think it is a family.

It’s weird how unbelievable famous this animation is here in Finland.
I don’t like it at all, but there is few cool looking characters in the show.

On the other news.

Can you believe the prices of the mugs?
Some people are paying 30-300€ and even more.

So many is collecting those ceramic mugs in their shelves.
Maybe that was the idea of Tove in the beginning, don’t know.

After the Moomin, next logical step is to watch LOTR-movie. Not sure which one of those, perhaps something in the middle.

I’ve watched LOTR animated movie when I was younger and like it a lot.

So did I like those 3 movies but, I’m not quite sure about the rest.

There is so many ways you’ll have to go and let’s face it, it’s not a galaxy like in those epic Star Wars tales… it’s one country with mountains and forest.

Yes you can move on the timeline forth and back, but those big feet heroes ain’t no more so interesting.

What’s next, the birth of Sauron..? Ugh..

Oh yes!!! VAMPIRES!!!

Finally Morbius!

I have always loved everything related with vampires.
Well not a fan of Twilight saga, but mainly everything related with blood suckers.

Big fan of lost boys, Blade, Norferatu and of course count Dragcula.

When I first time saw the fight of Morbius and Spider man, I was immediately thinking how awesome movie that would be.

Well, got the next best thing, when Morbius movie entered to the big screen.
Jared Leto is by far the best casting for the role.

This painting is actually full of mistakes, which I was trying to hide with paint.
This time my mixing technique had a gel pencils included.
It great way of adding the details.

I really should buy set of brushes for the test.
Failing test
Okay okay… before you start to laugh your ass off, let me try to explain this.

I was thinking after the “eye of Sauron” that maybe I can add little bit of those metallic colors to the painting?

Well here is a newsflash..
It work only for small tiny details, but if you use it too much, you’re screwed.

There is absolutely no way of fixing the metallic colors..
Can’t hide those spots with watercolor.

There is also that paper problem, can I make ‘em less wrinkled?

Already I have starting to think ironing afterwards, but that’s just dump ideas.

Maybe I have to make some money and visit local art store.
I have a feeling that I need more than few coins in my pocket, when entering the store.

Funny thing how the cheapest paper is not the best for painting.

Side projects 2. (And counting)

Airbrushing, Paint

Okay people, time to try how this thing REALLY works. 

Airbrushing is unknown area for me but that haven’t never stopped me, just slowed down little bit…

Getting started…

There was many things to do when I prepared this motorcycle helmet. Before you start painting, all “non-paint” areas must be covered. I was using masking tape and just normal copier paper.

Mixing paint…

This was the tricky part. Using airbrush paint thinner and metal paint was easy.. Mixing it up, that was hard… Paint has to be enough thin so it comes out from airbrush and it can’t be too thick… I can’t help you out anymore but after mixing paint it’s pretty much like regular milk… (Yup, trust me)…

Airbrushing the helmet…

I used just random skull stencil for outlines and started to paint.. Layer by layer, black, white, black etc.. And last round I made those shades.  


It’s enough good for first try, still I have no idea how that airbrush needs to be set but I think it comes in time…

What I learned…?

Many things… Paint mixing is really hard thing to do. Setting the airbrush is important if you want to have good steady paint flow. Covering those parts you don’t wanna paint and grinding of course. Can’t make good work if helmet is full of scrathes.. Sand blasting would probably be most effective way but I did i by sandpaper…

That’s all for now, thanks for your time… 


Airbrushing, Paint

finally bought that airbrush, there was probably cheapest version of the world and that suit well for my purposes.  $83 kit and there was: pencil airbrush, some piece of shit paint, plugs, adapters, two hoses, airgun, and of course that compressor. Next I payed a visit to local paint store and bough white and black metallic airbrushing paint $19 for can.. That’s it, now I’ve got the whole thing!


No manual of course, googling and checking Youtube videos to see how this thing works. Paint thinner and paint to the mug and let’s go. First reaction was “wow!!” Works like a dream and compressor was quiet. Shading was natural and airbrush felt sharp and easy to use, cutting somekind flame stencil and helmet to the table. I wanted to do smoky ghost flames and had no idea what to do… Let’s find out!

Making of. . .


It turned pretty good and for the first time ever job I was satisfied. First white layers then black and it was ready. Approximately few hours to make this, not bad I think…


About airbrush? Well sure I know now that this thing is pretty sharp to use, gotta start training to use it. Paint is very important, water based color was first try and pretty soon I realized that it won’t work with this.. It had to be different kinda stuff. I love this airbrushing already and just can’t wait next project…

To the next time. . . Ta Ta!

Side projects…

Carving, Drawing, Paint, Uncategorized

Skateboard deck and painting.

When you do creative work you’ll see that everything turns to something inside your wicked brains. I saw a skateboard at second hand store and it was cheap, I mean REALLY cheap, few dimes and it was a totally wreck. Long time I’ve been thinking: “what it would be like painting a sketeboard deck?”  Lets find out!

“Well heck, let’s give a try. . .”

I’ve done this kinda grinding/polishing some times somewhere so why not..? Old paint of and let’s get started. First problem was to find paint that don’t shine, blackboard paint was perfect and just the tone I was looking for…

“Okay, that actually worked… More you know!”

Next primer paint has to be “Bling Bling”… And in my garage I have found just perfect metal-silver spray can. Wait! I have to do some kind tape lines or it just looks stupid.. Couple lines here and there, random letter and triangle. Who actually cares, it’s just that primer. Let’s give a shot..

“Looks rad!!!”

Okay, primer looks solid, next it needs something big and good looking. Gunna go to shop now and buy airbrush… Never tried those before.. I’ll keep yall posted.

Side project two. . . Wood carving. . .

My grandmother brought this wood carving tool because she didn’t got any profer use for it. Well I sure do, old wooden cigar box where I keep my smokes and matches.. Let’s try that one for change.

“Buzz, buzz the machine goes. . .”

Hah, maybe this is not my thing… But hey, i’ve got some lines there tho. This carving stuff will have to wait for now, i’m going to buy that god damn airbrush!

I’ll keep you posted. . .
