How to use a Hair Dryer


Using a Blow Dryer:
There are times when we need to hurry a painting along, so I use a blow dryer. Remember, however, do not use it full force on a wet passage, as you will push the pigment into areas that you might not want it to flow. Some people seem to think that a dryer changes the look of the paint, but I haven’t found that to be true.

 

To be successful in using the hairdryer to get the paper dry enough to continue to paint, allow the wet paint to lose its shine just a bit so you don't get the effect shown above. However, if you prefer an abstract look, you can have fun with this by applying wet paint and putting the dryer on it!
