Let’s Draw Whimsical Faces – Open Studio LIVE!
Whimsical Faces – fun and easy! I’ll show you how to draw pretty little faces with a variety of media and include lots of tips for drawing your own cute little faces. Bonus points for seeing me knock the little man right off the table!
Materials and Supplies
These are the materials and supplies I use but you can use what you have on hand. Try to choose at least two different media to make them so you can get a feel for the process.
(When available, I use an affiliate link where I may earn a commission to help you find the products I use and enjoy personally!)
- Paper: Any medium to heavy weight paper that will accept some water for blending – I used Arteza 9×12 Watercolor Paper
- Dry media/mark making tools: I’m using a General’s extra soft charcoal pencil and Stabilo CarbOthello Chalk pencils . Use any soft, blendable dry media that lays down a lot of material
- Water blendable media/mark making tools: I’ve got a General’s Sketch & Wash graphite pencil and a gray Tombow marker. Again, any water activated media will work fine.
- Brush for blending: I like the Neptune brand synthetic watercolor brushes but as long as your brush holds enough water to blend well, that’s all you need.
- Water container: of course anything will do but I have and use this nifty foldable one – it’s handy to have.
- And, if you’re feeling saucy, try the “Paint Water” mug in the AJfB shop.
- White eraser: I use, and love, the Pentel Clic eraser, just be sure that the one you use erases cleanly.
- Sash or dusting brush: any clean larger flat paintbrush will work. I use inexpensive bristle chip brushes.
