Can I CONQUER my ENEMY art supply?! – Paletteful Packs | OIL PAINT


I’m scared. I’m excited. It’s time for another Paletteful Pack mystery Unboxing and let’s see what mystery supplies are in this month. As usual, Thank you so much to Paletteful Pack for sending me this box. All right here… we go. Oh nice grey little wormies. I… I like the dull color. What can I say? Alright, let’s get all of these little worm guys out of here and then get our supplies. So here we have three tubes of paint and this could go either way. They could be gouache, they could be acrylic or they could be oil. I am terrified to check. Let’s see what these are. M graham artist’s oil color (ivory black Payne’s grey and Titanium white.) I actually really do love Payne’s Grey ’cause it’s kind of like a really dark bluish gray color. However, wheew. Not a fan of oils. So to be honest, I am quite terrified. We had oils in a box a few months ago and I swear I put it on so thick it is still tacky to this day and I’m thinking about unfortunately throwing out the painting. It’s very sad. I like how they said “Oil paint can require a little bit of patience as you build your layers.” and you guys, I don’t have patience. Alright next up. We have M Graham walnut oil. So I suppose this is something to do with how to use oils. Let’s see what it says The addition of walnut oil to your oil paint will slow drying enhance flow and increase sheen. Let me tell you one thing. I don’t want to do is slow the drying time. Alright, next up is our paint brush to paint with. We have our Robert Simmons white sable brush. Let’s see that point.
Nice and fine. Nice and long, too. Next up is the art alternatives pallet knife. So here it is without the packaging and I actually kind of thought what they said in the back of the packaging was kind of funny. “Flexible steel blade. Solid hardwood handle. Solvent compatible!” and “Mix spread and apply color. manipulate paint strokes and texture.
Ideal for scraping and cleaning up.” So there you go. And for our final art supply. I think they forgot to give me… everything because it looks like we’re supposed to get an 8 by 10 stretched canvas. Got it. An 8 by 10 Canvas panel.
Don’t have it. But we do have the 5 by 7 Canvas panel. So it seems like they forgot to give me the 8 by 10 canvas panel, which thankfully, I don’t pay for this box So I don’t care that I didn’t get everything in the box but if I were paying for it, I’d probably be very sad. I guess it just means I have one less art to do, hah. All right. So let’s swatch some colors, play around with these oils, and see what we can make. Have I mentioned I’m terrified because I’m absolutely terrified of oils. So even though our colors are literally black, Payne’s gray, and white, I thought it would be interesting to go ahead and swatch them just to see… I don’t know. Who knows. What what they might look like. So we’ll just get a little dab there and I’m gonna be stupid and use my fingers so… There we go. I’m pretty sure oils are like the most toxic paint ever, but guess I’ll die. I’m actually excited to see the Payne’s gray because I just really like Payne’s gray. Paints gray is actually the color I use to color my aunt’s so let’s see if I resist making an ant illustration. Okay, that looks like that looks more black than black did… Actually I’m really curious to see what white and Payne’s gray looks like, so… I’m just gonna mix some of that up. So I guess I see a little bit more of a blue tone to it now that it’s mixed in with white, I suppose. Anyways, I wanted to do some some thumbnailing because I don’t really know what I’m going to draw and because this is pretty much going to be a black and white illustration, I wanted to kind of get an idea where I was going to do. So keeping the whole black and white situation in mind, I was thinking maybe we could do something with the moon and have it fade to really dark around it because they’re known for their ability to blend I suppose so… That would be interesting if we just had a moon and then maybe we could play around with some sort of creature or someone… I wish we had black White and then a color just to have a pop of color. Payne’s gray isn’t really doing it for me but I suppose… that does give us a little bit of color. I mean it’s not black or white, So… I kind of want to try to mix not realism but just a more blended style in with my illustrative style just to see what that would look like, I guess. I wonder what like ghost fish would look like we could do ghost fish. See, I wish we had red. Red it would be so cool for the fish’s eyes. I might be in love with those ghost fish. I mean, they’re just so silly. This kinda reminds me of my inktober 2017 cover page. Let’s see… You could fade away and then little ghost fish could be sticking out of her hair! No, I don’t know. I really think I do like the ghost fish Situati- I don’t really know what this is. I think it would be maybe ideal to do a little practice. Maybe we could do like a really loose oil painting on this one And then on this one, we really try to go for it, I guess. So I’m just going to roughly kind of lay out everything and like I said, this is just going to be the sketch. It’s going to be sloppy and messy to get a feel for the oils. I’ve used oils in a previous video, but I did not get the hang of them. So I feel like I could definitely benefit from a little trial run to just kind of see how this goes. Still scared. Still terrified, but I think we’re gonna have fun and… You know if I do anything completely horribly wrong you guys can just make fun of me and there you go it’s a Win-win for sure. As usual, does this seem like I know what I’m doing because… Tricked you. I absolutely don’t know what I’m doing. Oh, no, I’m mixing with the brush. I forgot you’re not supposed to do that. You’re supposed to mix with your palette knife, but I’ve already ruined that so… whoops. Seems like you kind of have to Pat the brush on the canvas to get into all those little holes to fill them. Actually, would this look more like clouds if I Patted around it? Would it look like fluffy clouds? I did say I wanted to do something a little less Illustrated and more… faded and stuff but I don’t think I like the way that looks at all. Oh no! I want there to be a glow around the moon. I just… destroyed that by painting it black around it. Well, this is what a practice round is for. Oh gosh. Okay. I think I would definitely do a lot better if I was painting on a surface that was smoother. I think that might be what my main frustration is coming from. I did want to play around with maybe looking like there were little ghost bubbles floating around on the water. I mean that could be interesting if I played around with it a little bit more. So really quick I actually poured some oil into the paint and the reason why I didn’t want to use it at first was because the whole The drying time is extended thing which really scared me off from using it. But it does make the paint a little more thinner and easier to use so I’m definitely going to have to keep that in mind because… this is a lot… A lot easier for me to use for sure. It’s not… Still not the best. I still don’t like Oils. Okay. Well still very hard for me to use but I think I can definitely get a smoother result using this. Using the oil rather than just using the paint dry. So… something to… consider and play with it. So we’ll see. I don’t know. So… Okay. Sure. I can maybe deal with that. So somehow I am actually feeling a little- Wow that was a lot of white. Well, you know, it wouldn’t be a Kasey video without a little regret. So I’m actually feeling quite motivated to really try my best with these paints. I want to try to give oil a really good try even though I really don’t like them. I’m gonna use a lot of oil because I feel like making it thin is the best way but that was that was a lot a lot of oil. And I want to give the moon a glow.
So the moon’s gonna be right here. About. And I can already tell you right now that adding oil really helps with me being able to use this a lot easier. So that’s good. I’m glad I… used all the supplies. As I should’ve. Just adding oil really scares me because I know it’s going to extend the drying time, which is something I do not want to do. So, that’s absolutely terrifying, but we will figure it out. Also, I’m obsessed with painting the sides. I just don’t like it when a canvas has white sides. So, please excuse me while I paint the sides of the canvas. I do want it to be rough. Definitely. You can tell if there’s brushstrokes because I think that’s the fun thing about working in a traditional medium is that this was done with brushes. I don’t want it to look like a smooth digital painting. I want it to look like I used a brush and there are strokes and actual paint. I want you to be able to tell how I made this painting. So I think it’s really fun to see all the brushstrokes. I feel like I would be more confident if I was working really big or if I just had a smaller brush. This brush isn’t even big. I just feel like it’s just going to be really easy to mess up. Also probably should be referencing an actual picture of the moon to see what its crater-y spots look like but here we are. Making stuff up. Paint our sea… Actually I do want to paint the edges of our canvas because like I said, I’m obsessed with the edges being painted as well. So I will be right back. Okay, so I have… I’ve painted the edges of the canvas and I’ve made quite a disastrous mess over here adding oil and… it’s just… I have no excuse. I don’t know what I’m doing. I do not work with oils. This is a disaster but we’re just gonna try to… you know, have fun and see what we can create. So. So far I feel like I’m having a lot better of a time than I normally do with oils. I think the sky for me looks really good. So I’m happy with… how that has turned out so far. But now it’s… oh it’s gonna get intense as I try to create shiny water over this white that is not even close to being dry yet. So wish me luck y’all, ’cause I’m going to need it. With how hard it is to even do something as simple as shiny water over wet white paint, It really makes me scared for how I’m going to add the ghosts. I might have to revisit this painting tomorrow and try to get this to dry as much as I can. I don’t want it to be completely smooth. Like I said, I do like to embrace the brushstrokes in the paint and all of that but there is too rough and I don’t really like that You can see the texture of the canvas as I try to make strokes. I don’t want that. But maybe I should embrace how rough it is in the sense that I’m not going to get as great of a smooth Shiny water effect as I would like, so maybe I should just embrace it and see what happens. No matter how much I try to avoid it, I’m probably gonna have oil somewhere in my room at all times now. It’s like sand. Oils are like the sand of art supplies. I’m actually starting to like the texture of the canvas as stupid as that sounds because I’ve been talking about not wanting it this whole time. It kind of adds like a little Sparkle and shine look to it. So I’m starting to like that I think. Okay, that was a big blob of paint. So RIP the drying time on this. Let’s see. I just wanted to be a little bit darker on the edges. Some of the light was kind of creeping in. There’s probably too much white. I’m just afraid to get rid of too much white. Because then it’s just going to turn into a very sad looking ocean. Okay, so I may have gotten rid of too much of the… The moonshine. But that’s okay. I think it looks all right. You know for someone that doesn’t work with oils, I think I’m… I’m hanging in there. So I don’t know how much this can dry between now and tomorrow, but I’m going to give this 24 hours to dry and see if it won’t make it easier to add our ghost fish and our clouds on top and maybe some stars and some sparkles and details, so I will see you guys in 24 hours when this dries or It dries a little bit because it’s not going to ry. Okay, so it has been 24 hours since I put this coat on and to no ones surprise it is still very wet. So I’m just going to do my best to put the clouds and the fish on as best as I can because I know it’s it’s still wet. It’s tacky. It’s probably just going to mix in with the previous layer, but we are just going to try our best. Do you guys want to watch a disaster? Let’s do it. Let’s let’s make a disaster here. Okay. So first off I do know that I want to put clouds… over the moon here. We’re picking up some of that gray. Oh boy. The disaster begins. And because I’m so scared to press down too hard I’m afraid that our layer of paint is going to be so thick it’s just never going to dry. This cloud is definitely a lot more gray than I would like because it’s picking up so much great under the cloud, but you know… But because I am painting on wet oils, I’m going to go ahead and just say that it’s still successful. One thing I do kind of regret is that I wanted to make the fish sort of transparent and it’s going to be kind of difficult with painting over the background. But the reason why I didn’t do that is because I knew if I painted around These fish and cloud shapes, it would only make it more difficult to do things like the water shine and the background gradient. I’m not skilled enough to do that sort of thing. Obviously, I just don’t know what I’m doing when it comes to oils, but we’re going to try our best. So… Oh my gosh, I’m scared. But here we go. Actually if it’s a ghost fish, it might just be really interesting if their eyes are just empty holes, so I might just leave it like that. Maybe I’ll try to give him a scaly texture and that could help with Making him look a little clearer because I’ll be picking up the background color a little bit. Does that look like a ghost fish? It kind of just looks like a weird… a weird thing. And because I want to use the pallet knife to do some painting, let’s use the pallet knife to create The water shine… Oh My gosh, that’s so bad looking. That was a lot of paint too. Holy heck. I didn’t mean to put that much paint down. That’s never gonna dry, is it? Oh, no. I don’t know how I feel about that, but it’s not as disastrous as I thought it was going to end up being so let’s just continue painting some more ghost fish. Oh, I forgot their eyes… Well, let’s just say as the ghost fish thing to the background they lose detail. Yeah? Great. Okay, I’m just going to add some additional wavy details in the water to make it look less…. Plain? Stagnant, I guess. Oh, you know what I should do? My classic birds in the sky like a five-year-old. Let’s do it. Oh my gosh. Wow. Great. Is that it? Are we done? Oh my gosh. I’m afraid to touch it. So I know the edges are still wet, but here we go. All right. Guys, thank you so much for watching my oil painting disaster. I… I don’t know. It’s oil painting. I feel like I just don’t have the patience for it and I never will.

  1. Oil painting disaster? Sorry, Kasey, you're wrong. It's awesome! Love the scales on the ghost fish and the use of the pallete knife. Always love your videos.

    My enemy umm I think that markers and permanent markers scare me ╰(°▽° )╯

    Like if you like his drawings (●'◡'●)

  3. Copal (it's all synthetic nowadays but it works better than natural) is a great product that increases drying, increases flow, and produces a really nice sheen. It's my favorite product aside from turpentine to use with my oil paints. Also, a thin layer of oil paint can take a week or more to dry depending on the pigment in the paint you use. White and black takes FOREVER to dry, but most other colors take a week at most. In all, though, an oil painting may take a year or more to dry all the way through.

  4. Recently, I’ve used oil paint for the first time too, and I think it’s quite fun! Most people use liquin to smooth out their paints, it’s soooo satisfying! Turpentine is for cleaning, and you normally don’t use straight oil paint because it has the consistency of peanut butter (unless dry brushing. Oil paint is actually just oil and pigment! It’s non-toxic, unless you somehow manage to breath in pigment particles. Just wash your hands, and you’ll be set!

  5. I can't stand oil paints or pastel chalk. Both are messy, take forever to set, and are a hassle to clean up. >:( 🌸

  6. i DETEST pastels they get everywhere ,u cant see where ur putting it bc it’s round, theyre chalky, they smudge. I JUST HATE THEM,

  7. I cant use paint in tube in général… its like the paint, the canvas and the brushes hate me :,(
    But watercolor and posca are 100% ok^^ (and your advices where helping me a lot with them 🙂 )

  8. Yeah, oil paints is a game of patience. A typical oil painting that isn’t thick takes about 3 days to dry in a cool and dry place. I had fun in college in oil painting classes but boy it was a pain having to wait for it to dry enough to layer on.

  9. Oh my gosh Kasey, this is literally so beautiful
    I love the moon reflections on the water. I think you nailed it!
    (Sorry if my English is bad, it’s my second language)

  10. i wish they gave you linseed oil instead of walnut oil :/ linseed oil thins the paint without affecting the dry time

  11. Oil paints are so easy to use!!! Haha am I the only one who thinks that? The only hard part is getting the paint off your brushes, but soap helps alot with that. 😂

  12. I think for not liking the art supply its still really good. My least favorite (enemy) medium to work with is oil pastels. They’re a glorified crayon that stains everything

  13. Watercolors used to be my enemy until last year. I used oils in college and really enjoyed them. I probably would say my art supply enemy is pastels, conte sticks and charcoals. Too messy!

  14. My art enemy is markers! They're expensive and hard to use.
    I am also a jerk because i use acrylic and gouache as watercolor 😔 I just can't help it

  15. Hi Kasey, the reason the texture showed through so much and you had to work so hard to spread the paint is because you didn’t use any additional oil or thinner. Walnut oil may not have been the right choice, but oil paints really need something added to work right. There are also some choices that can speed up drying time if you ever want to use them again.

  16. I showed my mum your previous oil painting video and she wanted to give it a go herself, so I bought her the Scrawlr Box box from that vid and she's enjoying it. Her jaw dropped when I told her it could take up to 6 months for it to dry though. She's keeping them above the door frame so our cats can't get to them xD

  17. If you oil paint much, you can paint gesso on the canvas and then sand it lightly with a fine grit sandpaper and then repeat a couple more times and your canvas will be prepped for painting. It will be smooth and then you won’t have to worry about trying to fill all those tiny indentations. Although some artists like a rough canvas, especially for landscapes.

  18. I usually apply the first few layers of oils by thinning it with solvents like turpentine. This method helps dry the layers relatively quickly. The upper layers should be thinned with oils so they dry slower so you get smoother blending and the painting doesn't eventually crack. The rule of oil painting is "fat over lean" for this reason.

  19. lol hi, oil paints aren't toxic, but the solvents u use to clean brushes is, stuff like turpentine/mineral spirits, they didn't give you any of that stuff tho which is smart lol all their customers would get cancer. you could always get some liquin tho, it thins the paint, it's way less toxic, and it greatly increases drying time. 🙂

  20. The funny thing is, acrylics are just as toxic as oil paints once they’re dry cause you could inhale the pigments. Even if they say non toxic. Oil paints aren’t that bad if you know what pigments you’re touching. It’s really the thinners you have to watch out for the most. And make sure you stay in a well ventilated area

  21. If you will ever dare to paint more with oil paints look on the internet for less toxic options to clean your brushes than standard turpentine. There are other options that don't try to kill you just by fumes

  22. The next time you play with oils, remember thick over thin (you can lay thicker paint over thinner paint)! Start your first layers with thin washes of paint and build up, it'll help make the experience more pleasant, oils can be daunting.

  23. Chuck pastels, their too easy too smuge so if you accidentally move your hand across the page then "sweep" hard work wasted "burn the piece afterwards". Has anyone ever heard of Tempura "not the Japanese deep fried shrimp/veg etc"

  24. As someone who loves oil painting I recommend getting liquin light gel if you want your painting to dry faster. The thing about mediums is a little goes a long long way. Temperature and air flow can both affect how your paint dries, if its really cold it aint drying and it needs air to dry because oils harden through oxidizing. Oils usually arnt the go to for any Illustrator because its not very time effective when you need to get illustrations done quick.

  25. It would have been nice to have included a medium or thinner so you could thin out the paint and that would make it dry faster because you have to work fat over lean with oil paint, it seems like there’s so many rules with oil paint that’s why I only ever made one finished professional oil painting and since I have retired I bought some water soluble oil‘s because I have to do an oil portrait for a family member who actually has money to pay for it, and they want oil. You really don’t want the oil to dry between coats you add medium or the walnut oil so the oil paint will not mix on the canvas different viscosities will not combine on the canvas and that’s how you create different layers. Good luck it’s always an adventure when working with oils. My art enemy is time, I just don’t have enough to get what I want done, done!

  26. Ok so as an oil painting student I will say adding that much oil to your piece makes it not archival and through out time it will begin heavily yellowing. Oil paints are great Im glad to see you trying more!!

  27. Try gamsol! It’s amazing. Thins out the paint and helps clean brushes. Try a spiral brush cleaner too I love mine! Liquin really helps speed up drying too!

  28. I can't do watercolor, I don't have the patience for layers and the colors end up muddy bc I accidentally use the brushes again.

  29. Hey Kasey! I JUST got a notification that you posted and had to come as soon as possible XD

    Love your vids, I watercolored while watching your videos today. You rock! >v<

  30. I was literally just thinking about you trying oil paint while watching your acrylic painting video this morning!!! Im so excited to watch this 😄🥳

  31. Def acrylic for me oddly (?) I took a paint class and we did mainly oils so I guess that's why I prefer it over acrylic (but def not watercolor or gouache)💖💗

    Tip: if able too always store oil paintings in the coldest room you have, it 'dries' faster that way then your able to layer and be done with it as a whole after words~

  32. Kasey: I'm going to give it 24 hours to dry!
    Me: internal screaming knowing oil paintings can take over 2 weeks to dry
