Hello, I am Anne Hunter, owner of the Creative Touch, a design studio in Melbourne, Massachusetts where I teach classes and design for books, articles and pockets. Today I am going to talk to you about LOEW CORNELL duster brushes and the 2014 Scumbler Series and show you how to do some dry brushing techniques. Okay let us get started.
When loading the duster or scrambler brush, I do not pre-moisten the bristles. I touch the edge of each bristle in the paint at the edge of the puddle of paint and just roll it and tap and then I wipe the edge of the brush to be sure I do not get any extra deposit of paint on the surface. This is a painted surface with acrylic and a little bit of texture medium. I am going to use the duster brush in an even back and forth motion to create some interesting textural background. One of the most common mistakes is to pounce up and down with this which gives you an uneven dark and light area. The even pressure provides a nice smooth and textural effect.
Next, I am going to show you how to create some form with the 2014 Scumbler, I am floating it the same way, tapping and wipe a little excess off on your paper towel. When it come here, and I am going to use this brush a little slightly off the point, angle just a little bit and I am rubbing back and forth and I am creating a base coat actually without doing a full base coat and I am lifting my pressure when I get close to the edge of this little section which is the ear of a little rabbit and I am coming along and I am picking up the base coat for the bunny itself. As you can see, I am going to move across the bunny and lift my pressure and leave the background showing as one of the natural ways to get some shadows on there. Wiping my brush then I am going to pick up a lighter color, in this case it is titanium white. Again I am going to wipe and then come back here and I am just going to highlight on the ear, just a little bit. I am not going over as far to the right to keep my shadows and I am going to rub the brush again, starting at the right, lifting the pressure as I go to the left. And here is what that technique looks like at its completion.
This whole entire project, we have painted mostly with a Scumbler and the duster brush with the exception of the little background greenery and that was using a liner and a little round brush. I hope you enjoy working with the Scumbler and duster brushes. And for more information about them and other brushes please go the LOEW CORNELL website. Thank you.
