Step 1: Get an Idea and Gather Your Materials
Now You'll need to decide what you'll use and gather what you'll need. For this, I decided to use oil paint sticks. Basically it's oil paint with hardener already mixed in, in the form of an over-sized crayon-type thing. You don't have to worry about getting the proportions of paint and hardener right, and these dry overnight.
I used these on a canvas board, and I also had a couple paper towels handy for wiping off my fingers as well as peeling the film off the oil sticks (more on that later).
