Hi guys and guyesses
A new bug has bitten me.
I saw someone painting names with what looked like small sponges at a flea market.
The style looked like calligraphy with an oriental flavour
It looked like such fun and it also looks like a quick money spinner.
There always is one isn't there?
Where do I learn how?
None of the sites I have found so far give clear instructions.
Can anybody help?
Please bear in mind that I am a GOF with limited talent
Hi Rusty, I had a look around and this type of art seems to be called "Name Painting". The designs they come up with are quite clever! I like the bright colors too.
Here's a book about it: How to Name Paint
Here's a YouTube video about it (mostly a demo rather than a how-to, but might give you some ideas as you watch how it's done): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ep8193pmmm8
Here's a kit for learning how to name paint: http://www.rainbowbrush.com/html/02_NamePaintingArt.htm
So far I haven't found any websites with detailed instructions on how to do it, though!
I looked at a few videos but they don't help much.
What I really need is samples of various styles of "fonts" as well as technique instruction.
Not so sure I'm going to win with this one but it will keep the old noggin active for a while.
