Acrylic Paint for Peg Dolls Art Suply Haul

Faerie Colors abound!

My go to acrylics are Ceramcoat by Delta and Americana by Deco Art. The Jo Sonja is my gouache type paint for hair and beards. These have been the smoothest paints and the easiest to work with on wood surfaces for me for years.

I’ve had over 30 years of fun with acrylics!

I still very much love my watercolors
but these wooden Peg Dolls I’ve been making call for unbridled acrylics.

Im dreaming of faeries…

And why not paint with New Colors?

Do you have a favorite?

Elf Peg Doll Sculpt and First Coat Paint

This little Elf got some clay on him.

Am trying the Hearty Air Dry Clay that I could find locally at my only craft store. The clay is sculpted on to a wooden peg doll boy.

The clay is different from a polymer clay. This is light, a bit wet. Yet in our climate it seems to dry a bit quick. I think working it with damp or wet fingers helps to keep it supple enough not to crack.

After 24 hours, the clay is easy to scrape or smooth and it’s easy to paint with acrylics. I’ve used mostly Americana by Delta and Ceramcoat paints since those paints have been part of my 30 years of acrylic painting.

Painting is my meditation.
Funny what you think of while creating.
My mind wanders, I think of my cousins, only two that I was ever close to even though there are many. I miss one, she died too young. I think on the fun times I had painting, learning from other artists, watching my mom do crafts. Painting is quiet peaceful thing. 💙

Here’s the first base coat on the Elf Peg Doll. He’s hanging out with his Santa friend. (More on Santa in another post 😁)

Watercolor is my love, but acrylic is my first affair with paint. This side trip to dolls, faces, and acrylic is a pleasant surprise.

Hope you like the little creatures that will come from it.

A mini is born!

Tiny whale tail

Whale watching season in Hawaii is so exciting. We can hear whale songs when we snorkel 😁💙

This started as a test patch for paint colors, ended up a mini painting, 😉 I couldn’t help it, it was fun!

Have you ever started with a dab here dab there and have it turn out to Be something?

Have you painted minis?

Have you heard the whale song?
