Features of painting on various art surfaces

Are you ready for a new challenge - to conquer the whole world with your creativity and original art surfaces? You can do it literally: you will become the master of every possible and unimaginable creative tools and artist surfaces that have ever existed! What is the magic of the painting surface?
Working with different painting surfaces requires a certain approach, as each painting surface and painting technique has its own tricks. You can use a wide variety of artist surfaces to paint with acrylics or markers. The choice of a particular artist painting surface depends primarily on your level of proficiency in tools and on the paints used. The paint should be designed for painting the type of painting surface you have chosen, as well as working with the tools with which you apply this paint. In addition, some painting surfaces must be pre-prepared before painting. You need to make sure that there is optimal adhesion between the paint and the painting surface and that your design adheres securely to the artist surfaces. If you plan to tint a large paint surface, you may need a special tool, such as an airbrush, to do this. In this case, make sure that the paint you purchased can easily pass through the nozzle of the airbrush.
The importance of choosing unconventional painting surfaces
It is unconventional painting techniques on unusual painting surfaces that create an atmosphere of ease, openness, promote the development of initiative, independence, and create an emotionally favorable attitude towards activities. For every artist, it is necessary and possible to search for such ways of interaction that, on the one hand, retain the advantages of original creativity, and on the other hand, help to master new means of self-expression; search for original art surfaces and new techniques. Therefore, you need to expand your horizon and experiment with different painting techniques on different artist surfaces:
traditional (pencils, paints, coals)
unconventional (different materials and surfaces to paint on)
As you know, novice artists often copy a sample that was provided to them on the usual paint surfaces. Unconventional painting techniques and painting surfaces allow to avoid this, since the beginner, instead of a ready-made sample, demonstrates only a method of action with specific material and art supplies (artist surfaces, paints, pencils, etc). This gives impetus to the development of imagination, creativity, the manifestation of independence, the expression of the individuality of the future artist on the new, unusual painting surfaces, explore one’s inner artist with different techniques.
The effect of unconventional painting created on unusual artist surfaces is not limited to improving hand-eye coordination (for example, painting on glass, painting fabric, designing your own original painting surfaces, painting with chalk on velvet paper, working with more original surfaces & artwork). When you work in unconventional painting techniques, using unusual artist surfaces, it also helps relieve stress, improve mood, relieves fear of the painting process, allows you to find a new way of self-expression on unique painting surfaces.
