Default Paint Fusion by Sheena Douglass

What can you tell me about this style of stamp painting? Is it paint blending by having two colors on the brush? Have the instructional DVD?

Your question made me curious as I have never heard of this. But I found quite a few YouTubes of her doing it. Here's one, and if you look to the side you'll see others:

Really very lovely technique. But it looks like you are using the stamps really as an outline for the painting. And she uses a very heavy bodied paint so she can mix the colors on the brush.

Yes, it's basically folk art painting with the stamped image as a guide. The stamps are nice as regular stamps as well if you don't want to break out the paints. Each set comes with a guide to the brush strokes and colours for each bit of the image and a wipe-clean sheet to practise on.

As Rachel Rose says, you'll find Sheena doing demos on YouTube although I think it's "taster" stuff but I don't have the DVD so can't say for sure.

These stamps are among my favorites, and they're great with other mediums besides acrylic paints too - I have also used them with watercolors and alcohol markers. There are samples on my blog here:

I usually don't care for the style of blending represented in folk art/tole painting; so I will pass on the paint fusion technique. Perhaps I will try a set of the stamps though. All the various components must make for quite a different image each time you compose with them. The poppies set looks great---though I need another poppy image like a hole in the head.

Thanks. And Dina, that iris looks fantastic!

Poppy stamps are one category I never get tired of.

I'll agree with you on the folk art painting - I do like using the stamps with acrylic paints but from there I tend to do my own abstract thing. I really really like using them with watercolors, and the no-line technique. Simple outline images are the best for learning to blend and shade, too.

I used to do Tole Painting back oh, maybe 25 years ago. This is exactly the same thing, only back then we used tracing paper and a carbon. That was always tricky when you had to paint white over the carbon line, lol. I think this is an interesting way to use rubber stamps, but I'm pretty happy with Copics, color pencils and water color.
