New to the board
I started painting with oil tube paints. Moved to acrylics. Then to airbrushed acrylics. Then I tried galkyd slow dry with dry pigments (back to bristle brushes).
Now I'd like to try airbrushing the thinner galkyd products. Maybe galkyd lite or slow dry or galkyd cut 50/50 with OMS.
I like the galkyd transparency. It really lets the pigment show through much nicer than acrylic which is a more translucent medium. I want to retain the freedom of using the appropriate tool for the job. Airbrush for sky or a beach and red sable brushes for complex details.
I suppose I could go with linseed oil and bristle brushes for graded areas and galkyd for complex areas but for me the airbrush is so much faster and with a quick drying medium it doesn't need to be perfect the first time through. The ability to tweek with additional layers is just really nice and the end result is way nicer than trying to accomplish it all wet into wet in a single pass.
Just moved to Dibond for my ground.
I am avoiding the possibility of the delamination issue by adding additional layers while the previous layer is still a little bit tacky.
Anyone tried spraying the galkyd products yet? or other alkyds? and what thoughts and insights can you provide? Thanks.
