How to Paint Air Dry Clay Using Shading Techniques
Today Mauricio Siqueira takes us on a walkthrough of painting a completed air-dry clay or cold porcelain figure using craft acrylics. Step by step photos take us from a cured completed figure (as shown below) to the finished detailed bunny shown above. Using the same techniques used by tole painters, the artist shades and antiques the wrinkles in the bunny's body and other accent areas. Notice where the artist uses thinned down paints to shade some areas. Blush or pastel chalks are used on the cheeks.
