Re: Painting with gloves

<<I wear a reusable glove on my left hand that holds a paper towel and nothing on my right.>>

That's what I do Kadin. Happy to hear I'm not the only one.

To me, oil paint is like a heat seeking missile.

It seems if I enter my studio for just a second or two I will leave with at least one smudge ... and, of course, unattended smudges tend to wander ... then multiply.

Re: Painting with gloves

I don't usually get paint on my hands when painting. I have picked up a wet painting in the wrong spot before or cleaned paint off a tube and gotten it on my hands. I usually don't get paint on myself or other things when I paint. When I have gotten paint on my hands usually from wiping my tubes after using them....I wash my hands in Dawn dish soap. I use oil paint and Dawn takes the oil off my hands easily.

Re: Painting with gloves

I use acrylics. I often paint with my hands instead of brushes, without gloves.

Re: Painting with gloves

I wear nitrile gloves when I paint. Does a couple of things for me. Keeps paint off my hands and me from touching my face, rubbing my nose or eyes while doing so. It's such an unconscious thing to do. Gloves don't have to be uncomfortable and you can still use your fingers to move or blend with properly fitting gloves. I see no down side to wearing them and do for the same reason I don't have a cup of coffee while I'm painting.

Re: Painting with gloves

I find the trick for me not to get gloved paint everywhere is to keep a clean piece of paper towel or clean piece of t shirt just for constantly wiping gloves. If you really press hard and scrub your gloves often with a clean towel, you will not get paint all over your brush handles or clothes.

Re: Painting with gloves

My defensive line. The wipes make it easy to keep the gloves clean.
