This is a dry brush painting technique that I use allot. Here I demonstrate it on a wicker basket.
- Dip the tip of your paint brush into the color you want to dry brush with
- Then dab the paint from the brush(this is called offloading your paint brush) onto a piece of cardboard to remove any excess paint. This is why its called Dry Brushing.
- Then apply gentle, very light pressure over the part of your piece that you want to Dry Brush. For example gently hit the raised detail on a piece of furniture so that only the high parts get touched lightly with paint. This will bring out the details and add depth to your painted piece.
