I don’t know anyone using enamel paint the way I do, it’s a bastard to use because it doesn’t like traveling across big distances.
Enamel paints coagulate quickly when air is forced over them at speed; so spinning at 200rpm is a nightmare. Furthermore each paint colour has a tendency to swallow its neigbour because of the nature of the pigments.
So you cannot spin multiple colours very often without causing a vomit-inducing pinky-grey gloop. These are infinitely more complex than acrylic paints.
But when it goes right the results are extraordinarily beautiful. Whisp-like fronds, fractal-esque separations, acres of effortless gradients and a million tiny details. It really is worth all the pain to get them right.
Recently I have successfully created my first 2m square canvases and plan to go larger in the near future. And when you see what I am now creating you’ll understand why we’ve gone through so much stress to get the tech right. Have a look at the video to see the big ones in action.
