Colour intensity meets expression: face masks for artists

08/24/2020 |

Artists do not limit their creativity to one canvas. Let colours flow, vary mixtures in new ways and make shades of colour sound - this is also possible on everyday objects such as a face mask. We love the way the intense nuances of the KREUL Javana Silk Paint and the KREUL Javana Fabric Paint for light fabrics combine to create a summery potpourri on white cotton. We carefully drip liquid magenta onto the white surface. Like delicate buds the drops of colour blossom on the pure fabric. Now it's time to have the courage to use colour and to create an individual, imperfect face mask. Who will take part and show how expressive face masks can look?

The basis for every masterpiece is reliable tools and brilliant colours. We paint our artistically designed face masks with the KREUL Javana Silk Paint and the KREUL Javana Fabric Paint for light fabrics. Both products penetrate deep into the fibre and are ideal for cotton or linen. In their respective product families, the colour shades can be mixed without any problems. This gives fabric artists the opportunity to create a rich colour palette from just a few basic colours. We have chosen summery colours for our expressive face masks. Green meets magenta, golden yellow meets red and blue: in hot temperatures we like to underline the mood with extroverted nuances!

The characteristics of the KREUL Javana Silk Paint and the KREUL Javana Fabric Paint for light fabrics inspire us to experiment with colour. Thus, we use the flowing consistency of the KREUL Silk Paint for the first accents on the white face mask. Fantastic how unique colour gradients can be achieved with a pipette. We are happy to add the first one and become more daring in our choice of colours. Time for action painting with opaque colour. With the back of a brush we tap, spray and press the KREUL Javana fabric paint for light fabrics onto the cotton face mask. The creative process is not only fun, but also looks like exuberant colourfulness.

When is the individually designed face mask ready for the stage? Every artist must decide that for themselves. We let our colourful face mask dry for about 6 hours and fix the artwork by ironing it for 5 minutes (cotton setting). Our artist's face mask is now washable at 40 degrees in the washing machine. Fantastic how inspiring it can be to comply with the hygiene regulations.
