Re: Finger Painting with oil

Rags!

Sorry, I couldn't help myself but knock that one out of the park. No offense.

AJ, you might want to try rags to soften your edges. Much in the same way you are softening edges with your finger strokes. They can also help when you scratch your nose.

Another thing that I advocate too much, is layering. Let the painting dry, smooth on a layer of medium with your fingers (a prescribed way), and paint away. It helps your painting become even more of an exploration.

The gloves are not for you, they're for your loved ones who would like to see you live a long healthy life.

Great stuff. Keep finger painting.

Re: Finger Painting with oil

Thank you peace. I tried gloves again. Iím really not liking the feel of it and I take them off most of the time. In reality. Is it really that dangerous? Hereís some new work. Thanks for the input.

Re: Finger Painting with oil

Apparently Leonardo Da Vinci used his fingers a lot when painting, and curators have used his fingerprints to authenticate some of his works. That said, I would be reluctant to use my fingers because many paints contain toxic materials such as cadmium, arsenic, etc. You would also need to use a lot of mineral spirits or others solvents to clean your hands.

Re: Finger Painting with oil

Soap and water is all you need to get the paint off your hands.I keep my fingers out of my mouth when I'm painting.

Re: Finger Painting with oil

Finger painting, the few instances I saw someone doing it, used a rag to protect the skin. It is a very limited technique though.
