Painting with make up: FAQ/ Slikanje sa šminkom: česta pitanja (part two/ drugi dio)


This post about painting with make up is a continuation of this one. Do you want to know how to paint with make up? What kind of make up products can be used for painting? What kind of paper is best for painting with make up? Well, you've come to the right place because today I'm answering all of your questions. 

Ova objava o slikanju sa šminkom je nastavak ove. Zanima li vas kako slikati sa šminkom? Koji se proizvodi mogu koristiti za slikanje? Koja vrsta papira je najbolja za crtanje sa šminkom? Ukoliko da, došli ste na pravo mjesto jer danas odgovaram na sva vaša pitanja.


                       What are the prons and cons of using beauty products to create art? 

They are numerous prons and cons of using a make up product to create paintings.  I will do my best to at least touch upon most of them in this post. In my previous one, I explained how it was possible to use make up for creating illustrations and painting.  First time I used make up for illustrations was back in 2014 and how that was like you can see here



Koje su prednosti i nedostatci korištenja šminke za stvaranje umjetnosti?

Postoje brojne prednosti i nedostatci korištenja šminke za slikanje. Potrudit ću se o većini nešto reći ovdje. U prijašnjoj objavi, objasnila sam kako je moguće koristiti šminku za stvaranje ilustracija i slika. Prvi put kada sam koristila šminku za slikanje je bilo 2014, a kako je to izgledalo možete pogledati ovdje.





Can painting with make up make your art different? Can it give you a fresh perspective?

Yes, it might make your paintings different and give you a new perspective so I think it is safe to say it can. If you want to try something new, this might do the trick. One advantage is that whatever you create (painting, illustration, poster etv) using make up supplies, it is bound to be unique. Your paintings will look different and that might result in them looking quite original. In addition, there will probably be a lot of shine and glitter in them, but whether that is a pro or a con I will leave you to decide. However, the difference won't be a very dramatic one. After all, art is not about the medium and whatever medium you choose, the ultimate creation always depends on a combination of talent and hard work. That doesn't mean that you can't do it only for the fun of it. We don't need to have artistic aspirations to paint, we may just want to create something lovely for ourselves and our own personal pleasure.

Hoće li slikanje šminkom promijeniti vaše slike? Može li vam dati novu perspektivu? 

Mislim da se može reći da hoće. Želite li probati nešto novo, ovo bi vam moglo dobro doći. Jedna prednost je da što god stvorite (sliku, ilustraciju, poster i slično) koristeći zalihe šminke, to će sigurno biti jedinstveno. Vaše slike će izgledati drukčije i originalno. Vjerovatno će na njima biti dosta sjaja pa i šljokica, ali je li to prednost ili nedostatak ostaviti ću vama da odlučite. No, razlika neće biti doista dramatična. Na kraju krajeva, umjetnost se ne svodi na medij i koji kod vid izražavanja izabere, ono što ćete postići će ovisiti o kombinaciji talenta i napornoga rada. Što ne znači da to nećete raditi samo iz zabave jer ne moramo imati umjetničke pretenzije da bismo nešto stvoriti, možemo samo željeti stvoriti nešto lijepo za sebe i svoje zadovoljstvo.

What is the down side to using a make up product to paint? 

It can be mighty frustrating. You will have to rely on yourself, for you won't find a lot of tutorials on this subject. I probably won't make any tutorials myself, at least not in the near future, because I'm still figuring it out. Make up isn't designed for painting. Make up products are designed to be used on skin, not on paper. That's the challanging part. Don't expect it to be too easy, it will probably take you some time to get really familiarized with it. Furthermore, despite the fact that using old make up is eco-friendly, you will find out how annoying it is for your 'art' supplies to be ever changing. As soon as you get used to painting with let's say lipstick, you will have to use another product because you ran out of lipstick.

Koji je nedostatak korištenja šminke za crtanje?

Može biti jako frustrirajuće jer se morate osloniti na sebe, baš i nećete pronaći neke upute na ovu temu, a ne vjerujem da ću i ja raditi nekakav tutorial u bliskoj budućnosti jer još uvijek eksperimentiram s ovom tehnikom. Šminka nije napravljena za slikanje. Kozmetički proizvodi su napravljeni za korištenje na koži, a ne papiru. To je izazov, tako da ne očekujte da bude najlakša stvar na svijetu, vjerojatno će vam trebati malo da se s ovom tehnikom upoznate. Nadalje, unatoč tome što je slikanje sa starom šminkom ekološki prihvatljivo, vidjet ćete kako ide na živce to što čim se naučite slikati s nečim, npr. s ružem, morate učiti slikati s nečim drugim jer ste ostali bez ruža.


painted on cardboard/ naslikano na kartonu
What are advantages and disadvantages of  old make up products compared with regular painting supplies?


The only problem is that unlike art supplies, it might be tricky to get your supplies. I mean you're going to use the make up you already have, so it will be limited edition series. You'll take up some product and work with it. As soon as you manage to figure out how to paint with it, it is already gone. You'll be surprised at how fast you can use it up.  However, that can be used to boost your creativity. No repetition, no rules, no shortcuts. Every paintings needs new rules.

painted on paper/ naslikano na napiru
What is the advantage of using a make up product for painting and drawing? 

I think it's main advatage is that it forces you to use your head. It can be tricky, but it is also loads of fun. Figuring out how to use and apply on paper (or cardboard), a product that is made to be used on skin only -that is where you can get creative. That is the fun part. Most make up products have great pigmentation. They can be used in variety of ways, for all kinds of DIY, not just for creating paintings and illustrations. If you're creative enough, you might end up with some exciting new techiques. It can teach you a lot about making art. So, you might end up with some things you will really like. It can help you develop your style. It can give you a fresh perspective. 

Što je prednost korištenja šminke za slikanje i crtanje?

Mislim da je glavna prednost što nas prisili da mislimo svojom glavom. Zna biti zafrkano, ali je i jako zabavno. Smisliti kako koristi  i staviti na papir ili karton, neki kozmetički proizvod koji je napravljen samo za korištenje na koži, to je nešto što vam omogućava da budete kreativni. To je zabavni dio. Većina dekorativne kozmetike ima odličnu pigmentaciju i mogu se koristi na više načina, ne samo za slikanje i ilustriranje, već za razne napravi sam projekte. Ukoliko ste dovoljno kreativni, možete doći do nekih zanimljivih novih tehnika. Može vas sve to naučiti puno o izradi umjetničkih djela. Tako da možete doći do stvari koje će vam se doista sviđati. Možete razvijati svoj stil i dobiti svjež pogled na stvari.

What make up products can be used for painting? 

All make up products can be used for painting. You will have to take the texture of a chosen make up product in consideration when you're planning your little art projects. For instance, lipsticks are usually creamy so keep that in mind. Lipsticks can be perfect for painting, but that doesn't mean you can't use them for illustrations and drawings as well. If you want to make a drawing using a lipstick, it will probably be best to make a sketch first and then perhaps use some kind of tool to help you apply it. On the other hand, if you want to create something using wide strokes, than lipstick is perfect for that. I used it to create backgrounds on my paintings and I applied it in two different ways: with a make up brush and with fingers. Both ways seemed to work. Don't worry about it, whatever you want to draw, illustrate or paint, you'll figure it out.

 What are the best make up products for painting?

All make up products can be the best ones for you personally because when it comes to painting/illustration/drawing, you have to work out by yourself what products suit you the most. So, it is just like using make up for what it is meant to do, it all comes down to what you like and what kind of effect you wish to produce. Depending on what you want to paint, draw or illustrate, you can use any make up product or all of them. The more make up products you have in your collection, the more choice you have. Nevertheless, you can create great drawings, paintings or illustrations using just one old make up product, for example an old eyeliner. You never know what will inspire you the most. So far, I used various make up products. More or less, I have used up all old make up that I have.

Koja se dekorativna kozmetika može koristi za slikanje?

Sva se dekorativna kozmetika može koristiti za slikanje. Morati ćete uzeti u obzir teksturu odabrane šminke za vaše umjetničke projekte. Npr. ruževi su obično kremasti pa trebate to uzeti u obzir, ali to što su idealni za slikanje, ne znači da s ruževima ne možete i crtati ili ilustrirati. Želite li napraviti crtež s ružem, možda bi bilo bolje prvo napraviti nekakvu skicu, a onda koristiti neki alat koji će vam pomoći da ga nanosite. No, želite li stvoriti nešto s širokim potezima, onda su ruževi savršeni za to. Ja sam ih koristila za stvaranje pozadine na svojim slikama i nanosila sam ih na dva načina: s kistom za šminkanje i s prstima. Čini se da su obje metode bile uspješne. Nemojte se brinuti, što god želite ilustrirati, nacrtati ili naslikati, već ćete nešto smisliti.

Koji su najbolji  preparati za slikanje?

Svi kozmetički preparati mogu biti najbolji za vas osobno, zato jer morate sami vidjeti što vam najbolje odgovara kada je u pitanju slikanje, crtanje i ilustriranje šminkom. To je kao i korištenje šminke za ono za što je i namijenjena, sve se svodi na ono što se vama osobno sviđa i na efekt koji želite postići. Ovisno o onome što želite naslikati, nacrtati ili ilustrirati, možete koristi bilo koju šminku ili cijelu svoju kolekciju šminke. Što više kozmetičkih preparata imate, više imate izbora. Ipak, možete stvoriti odlične crteže, slike ili ilustracije koristeći samo jedan proizvod, npr. stari tuš za oči. Nikada ne znate što će vas najviše nadahnuti. Dosada sam koristila razne proizvode, a više manje sam iskoristila svu staru šminku koju imam.

What kind of surface is the most appropriate for applying make up products?

I'm still not quite sure how to answer this one. I'm guessing that the best surface would be the kind of surface that  resembles  skin. Logical dictates that would be creamy paper. However, I don't have any cream paper in my home, so I never tried painting on anything other than paper or cardboard. From my personal experience, paper and cardboard are appropriate surfaces for applying make up products. You just need to think logically. If you want to paint with foundation and you're using a paper that is not meant to absorb that much (for example paper for regular printing) then you should use foundation carefully and not applying a lot of it on paper because obviously that would destroy it. As I said, it might take a few hits and misses to get it right, but basically you can use make up products to paint on whatever you like. You never know what can happen, you might be the one who comes out with some new painting method.

Koja je površina najbolja za slikanje?

Još nisam sigurna kako odgovoriti na ovo pitanje. Mislim da bi najbolja površina bila ona koja sliči koži, a po nekoj logici to bi bio kremasti papir, iako moram reći da pošto nemam kremastoga papira u zalihama, nisam nikada probala slikati šminkom na ičem osim papiru i kartonu. Tako da iz moga osobnoga iskustva, papir i karton su sasvim prikladne površine za slikanje. Trebate logički razmišljati, pa tako želite li slikati s podlogom, a koristite papir koji nije previđen za upiti puno toga, npr. običan papir za ispisivanje (da ne bude zabune to bi bila "hrvatskija" riječ za printanje), onda trebate oprezno koristiti tu podlogu i ne nanositi je previše na papir jer bi ga to uništilo. Kao što sam rekla, možda će tu biti malo propalih pokušaja, ali u principu možete koristiti šminku za crtanje na čemu god želite. Tko zna možda baš vi pronađete i razvijete neku novu tehniku.



@modaodaradosti
I hope you found this post useful (and not only because it took me a long time to write it but for other reasons as well). Well, the main reason why I wanted to write it in the first place was to encourage you to try painting with make up because I'm pretty sure that is something a lot of people could enjoy. It's a fun and affortdable activity. If you use your old make up supplies, then it is very eco-friendly as well. If I managed to give you some inspiration or answer some of your questions, that writing this post was time well spent ( even if the cost was one less day at the beach). Anyway, that's all for today. The reason for my absence lately wasn't just this post that took a bit longer to write, but also the fact that I went to visit my grandmother on island Hvar. Spending one week without internet connection was actually really nice, I would recommend it to everyone.


Nadam se da vam je ova objava bila korisna i ne samo zato jer mi je trebalo jako dugo da je napišem već i zbog drugih razloga. Glavni razlog zašto sam je odlučila napisati je da ohrabrim ljude da isprobaju slikanje sa šminkom jer sam poprilično sigurna da je to nešto u čemu bi dosta ljudi moglo uživati. To je zabavna i pristupačna aktivnost, a koristite li stare zalihe šminke, onda je i ekološki prihvatljiva. Ukoliko sam vam uspjela dati odgovore na neka moguća pitanja ili nadahnuti vas, onda je pisanje ove objave bilo dobro provedeno vrijeme (čak i ako me koštalo jednoga dana manje na plaži). Uglavnom, to je sve za danas. Razlog za dužu odsutnost nije bila samo ova objava u kojoj ima malo više pisanja nego obično, već i posjet baki na Hvaru i tjedan dana bez internetske veze (koji mi je jako dobro došao, moram priznati ..zapravo svakome bi preporučila tako nešto).

  6. Draga moja, da imam neki lokal, ja bih tvoje radove rado iskoristila za neku izložbu. Toliko mi se sviđa sve, da svaki put ostanem bez teksta. Mogu da zamislim sav trud koji si uložila kako na slikanje, tako i na sastavljanje celog posta, ali je svakako vredelo. Mene si definitivno zaintrigirala, jako mi deluje privlačno sve to i iako ti nisam ni do kolena što se tiče takvih stvari, verujem da može da bude jako kreativno i opuštajuće. Zaista kada stvaramo nešto, ne treba misliti na neki nivo koji treba dostići već uživati u procesu. Svaka čast! <3
    Drago mi je da je razlog ovoj pauzi bio takav povod, a za internet i nemanje istog ti verujem na reč...

  8. Hi again, dear Ivana! I haven't stop by your blog since the last week and it is always cool to visit you :D You always delight me with your art and with your ideas, and you know what they say, in order to be creative (if you're a content creator, call it what you want: painter, illustrator, writer, musician, etc.) you have to appreciate and fill yourself with inspiration from other artists! And you know how to do it so well ;)

    I love that you're always beyond, you don't limit yourself to the conventional materials or to the normal formats! In the first part of this post I told you it seems like a great idea to try! Actually I will, I promise, I'm just a little scared hahaha, but I really like the result and more than that, the fact that you're trying to create something unique ;)

    Hope you're having an amazing summer!
    Regards from Barcelona!

  14. Great illustrations, I like your explanations. I have to say, that I've always appreciated the concept of using different mediums, even makeup for art. It's not my preference but like you said it has advantages and disadvantages. We had to do a project in design school using what we had in our bag, and the one piece that I loved was my eyeliner crayon, haha it reminded me of charcoal and pastels (two of my favourite mediums aside from acrylic) Your work looks nice.
