GEEK OUT ON THE DETAILS:
"To create the ideal hue, Naomi adds water to a variety of acrylic paints, playing with shades and thickness for each color. (Surprisingly, white can be particularly tricky. If the paint becomes too thin, the tint won’t be vibrant enough.)"
"When it’s time to actually paint, Naomi uses two methods—a spray gun (above) and a regular brush. “We started to notice that the more, different kinds of methods we use, the better.”
“You can tell when Naomi’s using the spray versus the paint brush. All of those elements add up bringing so many different textures.”
