PostSubject: question about Genesis Paint   Mon 15 Aug 2016 - 19:54

I[size=24][size=18] have never painted with anything but Genesis Heat Set Paints, and It seems as if I have always had this problem but sometimes it seems more often , I know its me and not the paints I am just not sure how to correct it, so I need you
Ladies to tell me what I am doing wrong, while I am Painting it seems as though when I try to make it as light as possible I see nothing the if I try to make it darker it always ends up to much paint, baby either ends up very Pale or too much paint
it seems as though when I am putting the paint on it seperates and after the thinner flashes there is nothing left, I don't understand, Can someone help me please

Hi ,I'm sorry you are having this problem. Are you using your 1/2'' mop brush ? Most of our applications we use 1 or 2 brushes of paint with 1/2 tbsp. of orderless thinner depending on how dark or light you want your color. The darker you want your color/shade you add more thin layers and build your color up slowly to the desired color. When painting or building up your color or layers you can add 2 or 3 applications of paint when using the same color making sure to bake before adding any more. One brush of paint is coating both sides of brush lightly, do not scoop.  Sometimes added with a touch or two of a different color . A touch is lightly tapping the tips of your brush so a small amount sticks to your bristles.  Could you post some pictures for us to see. I am assuming you are talking about GHS paints sense you said you have only worked with GHS.

Is your question about Genesis or Air dry paints? Sometimes it helps to actually see someone paint in person, if the ebook or pictures do not help. I know there are videos on you tube that show mixing of paints, or maybe one the DVD's might help you, so you can see it being mixed and applied.

I have found...that lighter is usually better more layers...

If you see a color in your ramekin, dish, will TRANSFER to the vinyl...the kit willpick up the color too!.

For me, less is better... I just go slow and do more layers. wink
