..and dont forget to as usual "blow dry" and clearcoat the paint chips. If you are into being a bit OCD(many toy people are), consider a separate chip of each color with the matte clearcoat as well as the gloss.
Like i said prior : "it is all you."
Lack of color chips? Wha..? Dudes, that's impossible as the handmixing is endless because you(Matt) have coughed us up so many colors already.
1) To make your own paintchip guide like a nice fatlady has in a shishi paint boutique is easy-peasy lemon squeezey. And it don't cost you near nothin'!
First, aquire a nice grip of MK paints. Dont get tightfisty or you will be "so solly cholly" when you lack what you need for the throwdown.
2) Next go to your local hardware store and buy a vinyl sun-shade. The kind that is attached at the top of a door or window to block sunlight from fading your paintings or irritating a hung-over eyeball. Make sure it is vinyl, and make sure it is a neutral color (preferably off-white. avoid a true bright or "clean" white unless you underpaint with white on a regular basis to "pop" colors.) These shades fkn rule because they are so easily rolled up and stored close at hand..or unrolled and thumbtacked to a wall in your paintspot. They are extremely versatile.
2b) Have a soda or cup a joe to get the wit up and throw on some music to sooth or raise the savage beast. The next step will keep you focused and burn all that sugar or cafeeen right outta you. The music will do what music does.
3) Now you are ready to go. This is time-consuming, but man will it freakin' pay off so fat in the short and long term. Simply begin to make polka dot like circles - one for each color (printing the colorname underneath in fineline permanent pen). At first, keep it basic, and use only straight from the bottle to the gun to the surface. DO THEM ALL AND CLEAN THE CUP IN BETWEEN COLORS.
4) Dig your kick-ass map to the landscape of color you have on hand, and as new colors are acquired or learned...add them as you see fit. Its all you.
5 to infinity) There is no end to the charts you can and may make for yourself. Some folks live to handmix.
Where you go from here is all on you. It can and will get heady. You WILL have a desire to create other charts of clearcolors, fades on clearcolors, subtones and handmixes. You WILL have a need to create a separate chart of the various "effects" and "tricks" you have that have learned by experimental trials that you will wish to keep secret. You know, those painterly tricks that when someone asks you how you did it you say.."yeah..uh..wow..I am not too sure, I was just painting and got lucky." Yeah..suuuuure.
I would be at a total loss without my charts and moleskines. They are my magick primers, my grimoires. They are my maps of where I've been and where I'd like to go.
The time you put into making these "chip charts" will be time super well spent. I actually enjoy it as much as painting. The colorwheel is your friend, and the more you hang with it, the better you will communicate with it and to it. These charts will be your own.
Keep on painting, and maybe give the colorwheel a spin or two...make your chart/chips and I promise it will do wonders. The shades run under ten dolla, and you can find them almost anywheres.
Ya wont be sorry if you give this a go.
Thank you. I get color requests all the time. I try to meet expectations. Newbie mk users complain about lack of color chips. I laugh and say "you'll see" :)
On it. You read my colorwheel mind on the regular, dude. I don't even have to send one single solitary pestering email neither. I needed more greens. Got more greens. Needed more reds...got reds. And man do these look sick, and man will it cut down on my handmixing. Sweet.
