  1. Happy Saturday! For me exerimenting and testing out new art mediums always helps me to get out of the creative block! It's good to change things up in your creative process to feel inspired and to feel excited again! So I hope this video will help and inspire you to get creative! ❤

  2. Very helpful video.Please suggest me which acrylic paint should I use to do dot painting on wine bottles and which varnish on it. Thanks.

  3. I find it incredible that I am 20 years old now and have done many years of art classes in school, yet I don't know anything about different paints and papers and how to use them… I really do not remember being thaught this stuff, then again in my school, art class was always seemed to exist just to fill our schoolday and not actually learn something…
    So thank you for making this video, for a complete beginner like me this was extremly helpful

  4. Acrylics – 70 years old. Gouache – 400 years. Watercolors – 4,000 years. You're still my fave red headed YT artist, though.

  5. Wait. So watercolors have to be in palettes? I’m kinda confused. Because I have watercolors that are in tubes, but you said they’re guoche?

  6. Hi.ty for the tips I want to use the acrylic paint that are in tubes but I don't know which brushes to use on canvas and paper I'm making fan art for a YouTuber and I need to choose the right brush for details ,spreading,blending,etc

  7. Okay I don’t know why but I legit thought opaque was a synonym for transparent but from this video I learned it’s actually the opposite. I was so confused for the first 4 minutes. Now it suddenly makes sense why with Adobe programmes (which I’ve been working with for 10+ years) 100% opaqueness means non-transparent hahaha. Ahhhh, the joys of not being a native English speaker. 😂

  8. What to do if I don't have guasche but I need the texture of it. Shall I mix acrylic with water color or it won't work

  9. The first gouache pallete i got was so bad ;-; it waa so chalky and could not even be used as watercolour or acrylic.

  10. Hi! i'm new in the world of painting and i don't know which medium is the best for beginners like me. which paint type should i buy and start off with? thank you 🙂

  11. Quick question, is it ok to mix water with acrylic paint to make watercolor? I do it sometimes and the results aren’t too bad

  12. She: Acrylic paint is a lot cheaper than gouache or watercolors
    Me: WHAAAT!!!?? In Lithuania acrylic paint is 9 Euros and gouache is 3-4 Euros, and watercolors can be up to 1-3 Euros, I'm shocked!!!
