The Worst Advices We've Heard For Wine And Paint Cary Nc

Paint and wine? That's a strange combination; how can two things taste so horribly wrong? But, in reality, they do. Fortunately, my husband loves both fine wine and “big” food (which he makes by the way), but we're stuck trying to make it work.

To me, wine and painting is like chocolate and peanut butter – I can't separate them. It's like trying to eat dessert without the chocolate. And, to me, painting is an art form. So when I had the bright idea that one day I was going to attempt painting wine with my own hands, I wanted to learn as much as possible about the process before I started.

The first thing I learned was the most obvious – DON'T paint over already stained wine. There are some varnishes that can still be “thrown on” to restore a bit of color, but most must be removed. I've even seen some that are so thick you can barely see the paint through. That said, my “wine” was fairly dark, and therefore I wasn't in such danger of “throwing away” what I'd spent so much time on.

Next, make sure to rinse your palette. The paint may not have “thrown onto” the palette in the first place if you've let it sit too long between coats. And if you've used oils or acrylics, make sure and remove those as well. Any oil or acrylics left on the palette will eventually attract dust, which can actually “throw” a pigment off your work. Also, alcohol can dry out your paint which is definitely not what you want to happen.

If you're painting wine, it's important to be extra careful about applying the finish. Because wine is a product that is more finicky than other products, it's important to learn how to apply it evenly. This means learning to roll the wine bottle in a wide circular motion until you get to the bottom of the bottle. From there, use the same circular motion to apply the paint. Make sure and only scrape up a portion of the wine bottle before applying it; otherwise, you may find that your painted wine is blotchy and uneven.

The main lesson I learned from my experience is that I should really only use acrylic paints when my wine is already on the canvas. Other than that, there is little else to learn. I found that I didn't have to spend a lot of time on cleanup, and once I got into the flow of painting, the only thing left to do was to look for contrast. Contrast is an absolute must in art and in painting in general. You'll want to use contrasting colors to show off certain aspects of the wine, and then you'll blend in the color to make everything stand out and look uniform.

I'd recommend taking your time and creating a sketch first before actually jumping in and painting. This way you can take some time and really figure out what looks best, and what doesn't. When I'm done with one piece of art, I simply erase what I've had drawn and start over again with a fresh slate. This way you can learn from your mistakes and build upon your previous pieces of art. You may find that learning to paint with acrylics is a bit of a challenge at first, but you'll eventually become comfortable with it. After a few years of doing it, I promise you that you'll wonder how you managed to carry on painting on even when your wine was just sitting in the rack.

It's not that the smell of wine is bad or anything. I like the smell of wine, and it's relaxing to me. That said, you should also learn how to take care of your wine properly if you want to preserve its freshness for as long as possible. For instance, I always store my wine in an air-tight glass jar in my wine rack. You could also learn how to properly handle, clean and store your wine in this manner so that it remains always fresh and new.
