Joe Miller Painting Knives: http://bit.ly/gYgMur

Hello again, I'm Joe from Cheap Joe's Art Stuff and I'd like to show you about our new painting knives. They're really not new. They put my name on them and called them new but they are the same old painting knives you've seen for a long time. So if you have one, you don't need to order this one, not trying to sell you just want to show you the neat trick you can do with watercolor.

You mix up your color. I'll mix up this lucky penny that I just love. Very rich very strong about like that right there. About the consistency of thin pancake batter. And then I take the painting knife. This is a Joe Miller #39 and it has a long point on it and you simply pick up the color with both sides. I'm going to move my palette now so I can show you.
And holding it like this you simply come down here and you start it, there we go, I give it these jerky motions like that, and the first thing you know you have a little tree little limb coming out like that and it makes really fine limbs out there. People will wonder. You can't get a rigger that will make it that fine and you get little places on the trees. And I could bring this on down like that. So it gives me a lot of character here with this tree.

And then I have another painting knife and this is the Joe Miller series #81 and it is a long rectangle and actually is an interesting knife. You fill it the same way. Just pick up all the color on it that real moist color and simply come in here and lay it flat and start rubbing it across...wow look at that. Isn't that fun. It's really a neat way to do. You can put grass out through there like that maybe pull a little bit down. Pull a limb out thought there like that. You can change colors, pick up some yellow color now and some greens and some blues, but it's a fun thing to do and you can get some fine detail and it's really loose so people are going to wonder how in the world you did those little...see doesn't that look just like a little place out in the woods. Perhaps I'd like a rock in there and I could put in there like that. Maybe come back here and scrape it with a razor blade.
There's two or three rocks in there.

So there's your painting knives and use a little razor blade to scrape with or a sharp edge credit card or whatever you have. It's a fun thing to do. Thanks for your business.
