What Is The Easiest And Best Way To...

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys. I was wondering what the best way to splatter paint. I know you can make fast trigger pulls to get the splatter. Also I have turned the air down and not thin the paint as much works too. But, are there other ways to do it?

Thanks

Mike

Mike,

One way to splatter paint is to put a little dab of paint on a piece of paper, in a jar lid, etc. Then take a toothbrush, dip the bristles in the paint, and then pull your thumb across the bristles. The more paint on the brush the larger the spots. I would suggest testing it on a piece of cardboard or other material until you get the pattern that you want.

Another is to spay onto something like a popsicle stick, allowing the paint to splatter off into the bait. Other options are splatter tips on your airbrush, I know at least Badger and Aztec offer these..

There IS a brush in an art store that does the splatter effect. I painted a trout color a few weeks ago, but it took long to dot the side of the bait. I saw in my art case that brush, as i had used it very little. It will work, with opaque paint. A toothbrush is less expensive way to do go. Practice it. It may go everywhere!
