Can I CONQUER my ENEMY art supply?! – Paletteful Packs | OIL PAINT


I’m scared. I’m excited. It’s time for another Paletteful Pack mystery Unboxing and let’s see what mystery supplies are in this month. As usual, Thank you so much to Paletteful Pack for sending me this box. All right here… we go. Oh nice grey little wormies. I… I like the dull color. What can I say? Alright, let’s get all of these little worm guys out of here and then get our supplies. So here we have three tubes of paint and this could go either way. They could be gouache, they could be acrylic or they could be oil. I am terrified to check. Let’s see what these are. M graham artist’s oil color (ivory black Payne’s grey and Titanium white.) I actually really do love Payne’s Grey ’cause it’s kind of like a really dark bluish gray color. However, wheew. Not a fan of oils. So to be honest, I am quite terrified. We had oils in a box a few months ago and I swear I put it on so thick it is still tacky to this day and I’m thinking about unfortunately throwing out the painting. It’s very sad. I like how they said “Oil paint can require a little bit of patience as you build your layers.” and you guys, I don’t have patience. Alright next up. We have M Graham walnut oil. So I suppose this is something to do with how to use oils. Let’s see what it says The addition of walnut oil to your oil paint will slow drying enhance flow and increase sheen. Let me tell you one thing. I don’t want to do is slow the drying time. Alright, next up is our paint brush to paint with. We have our Robert Simmons white sable brush. Let’s see that point.
Nice and fine. Nice and long, too. Next up is the art alternatives pallet knife. So here it is without the packaging and I actually kind of thought what they said in the back of the packaging was kind of funny. “Flexible steel blade. Solid hardwood handle. Solvent compatible!” and “Mix spread and apply color. manipulate paint strokes and texture.
Ideal for scraping and cleaning up.” So there you go. And for our final art supply. I think they forgot to give me… everything because it looks like we’re supposed to get an 8 by 10 stretched canvas. Got it. An 8 by 10 Canvas panel.
Don’t have it. But we do have the 5 by 7 Canvas panel. So it seems like they forgot to give me the 8 by 10 canvas panel, which thankfully, I don’t pay for this box So I don’t care that I didn’t get everything in the box but if I were paying for it, I’d probably be very sad. I guess it just means I have one less art to do, hah. All right. So let’s swatch some colors, play around with these oils, and see what we can make. Have I mentioned I’m terrified because I’m absolutely terrified of oils. So even though our colors are literally black, Payne’s gray, and white, I thought it would be interesting to go ahead and swatch them just to see… I don’t know. Who knows. What what they might look like. So we’ll just get a little dab there and I’m gonna be stupid and use my fingers so… There we go. I’m pretty sure oils are like the most toxic paint ever, but guess I’ll die. I’m actually excited to see the Payne’s gray because I just really like Payne’s gray. Paints gray is actually the color I use to color my aunt’s so let’s see if I resist making an ant illustration. Okay, that looks like that looks more black than black did… Actually I’m really curious to see what white and Payne’s gray looks like, so… I’m just gonna mix some of that up. So I guess I see a little bit more of a blue tone to it now that it’s mixed in with white, I suppose. Anyways, I wanted to do some some thumbnailing because I don’t really know what I’m going to draw and because this is pretty much going to be a black and white illustration, I wanted to kind of get an idea where I was going to do. So keeping the whole black and white situation in mind, I was thinking maybe we could do something with the moon and have it fade to really dark around it because they’re known for their ability to blend I suppose so… That would be interesting if we just had a moon and then maybe we could play around with some sort of creature or someone… I wish we had black White and then a color just to have a pop of color. Payne’s gray isn’t really doing it for me but I suppose… that does give us a little bit of color. I mean it’s not black or white, So… I kind of want to try to mix not realism but just a more blended style in with my illustrative style just to see what that would look like, I guess. I wonder what like ghost fish would look like we could do ghost fish. See, I wish we had red. Red it would be so cool for the fish’s eyes. I might be in love with those ghost fish. I mean, they’re just so silly. This kinda reminds me of my inktober 2017 cover page. Let’s see… You could fade away and then little ghost fish could be sticking out of her hair! No, I don’t know. I really think I do like the ghost fish Situati- I don’t really know what this is. I think it would be maybe ideal to do a little practice. Maybe we could do like a really loose oil painting on this one And then on this one, we really try to go for it, I guess. So I’m just going to roughly kind of lay out everything and like I said, this is just going to be the sketch. It’s going to be sloppy and messy to get a feel for the oils. I’ve used oils in a previous video, but I did not get the hang of them. So I feel like I could definitely benefit from a little trial run to just kind of see how this goes. Still scared. Still terrified, but I think we’re gonna have fun and… You know if I do anything completely horribly wrong you guys can just make fun of me and there you go it’s a Win-win for sure. As usual, does this seem like I know what I’m doing because… Tricked you. I absolutely don’t know what I’m doing. Oh, no, I’m mixing with the brush. I forgot you’re not supposed to do that. You’re supposed to mix with your palette knife, but I’ve already ruined that so… whoops. Seems like you kind of have to Pat the brush on the canvas to get into all those little holes to fill them. Actually, would this look more like clouds if I Patted around it? Would it look like fluffy clouds? I did say I wanted to do something a little less Illustrated and more… faded and stuff but I don’t think I like the way that looks at all. Oh no! I want there to be a glow around the moon. I just… destroyed that by painting it black around it. Well, this is what a practice round is for. Oh gosh. Okay. I think I would definitely do a lot better if I was painting on a surface that was smoother. I think that might be what my main frustration is coming from. I did want to play around with maybe looking like there were little ghost bubbles floating around on the water. I mean that could be interesting if I played around with it a little bit more. So really quick I actually poured some oil into the paint and the reason why I didn’t want to use it at first was because the whole The drying time is extended thing which really scared me off from using it. But it does make the paint a little more thinner and easier to use so I’m definitely going to have to keep that in mind because… this is a lot… A lot easier for me to use for sure. It’s not… Still not the best. I still don’t like Oils. Okay. Well still very hard for me to use but I think I can definitely get a smoother result using this. Using the oil rather than just using the paint dry. So… something to… consider and play with it. So we’ll see. I don’t know. So… Okay. Sure. I can maybe deal with that. So somehow I am actually feeling a little- Wow that was a lot of white. Well, you know, it wouldn’t be a Kasey video without a little regret. So I’m actually feeling quite motivated to really try my best with these paints. I want to try to give oil a really good try even though I really don’t like them. I’m gonna use a lot of oil because I feel like making it thin is the best way but that was that was a lot a lot of oil. And I want to give the moon a glow.
So the moon’s gonna be right here. About. And I can already tell you right now that adding oil really helps with me being able to use this a lot easier. So that’s good. I’m glad I… used all the supplies. As I should’ve. Just adding oil really scares me because I know it’s going to extend the drying time, which is something I do not want to do. So, that’s absolutely terrifying, but we will figure it out. Also, I’m obsessed with painting the sides. I just don’t like it when a canvas has white sides. So, please excuse me while I paint the sides of the canvas. I do want it to be rough. Definitely. You can tell if there’s brushstrokes because I think that’s the fun thing about working in a traditional medium is that this was done with brushes. I don’t want it to look like a smooth digital painting. I want it to look like I used a brush and there are strokes and actual paint. I want you to be able to tell how I made this painting. So I think it’s really fun to see all the brushstrokes. I feel like I would be more confident if I was working really big or if I just had a smaller brush. This brush isn’t even big. I just feel like it’s just going to be really easy to mess up. Also probably should be referencing an actual picture of the moon to see what its crater-y spots look like but here we are. Making stuff up. Paint our sea… Actually I do want to paint the edges of our canvas because like I said, I’m obsessed with the edges being painted as well. So I will be right back. Okay, so I have… I’ve painted the edges of the canvas and I’ve made quite a disastrous mess over here adding oil and… it’s just… I have no excuse. I don’t know what I’m doing. I do not work with oils. This is a disaster but we’re just gonna try to… you know, have fun and see what we can create. So. So far I feel like I’m having a lot better of a time than I normally do with oils. I think the sky for me looks really good. So I’m happy with… how that has turned out so far. But now it’s… oh it’s gonna get intense as I try to create shiny water over this white that is not even close to being dry yet. So wish me luck y’all, ’cause I’m going to need it. With how hard it is to even do something as simple as shiny water over wet white paint, It really makes me scared for how I’m going to add the ghosts. I might have to revisit this painting tomorrow and try to get this to dry as much as I can. I don’t want it to be completely smooth. Like I said, I do like to embrace the brushstrokes in the paint and all of that but there is too rough and I don’t really like that You can see the texture of the canvas as I try to make strokes. I don’t want that. But maybe I should embrace how rough it is in the sense that I’m not going to get as great of a smooth Shiny water effect as I would like, so maybe I should just embrace it and see what happens. No matter how much I try to avoid it, I’m probably gonna have oil somewhere in my room at all times now. It’s like sand. Oils are like the sand of art supplies. I’m actually starting to like the texture of the canvas as stupid as that sounds because I’ve been talking about not wanting it this whole time. It kind of adds like a little Sparkle and shine look to it. So I’m starting to like that I think. Okay, that was a big blob of paint. So RIP the drying time on this. Let’s see. I just wanted to be a little bit darker on the edges. Some of the light was kind of creeping in. There’s probably too much white. I’m just afraid to get rid of too much white. Because then it’s just going to turn into a very sad looking ocean. Okay, so I may have gotten rid of too much of the… The moonshine. But that’s okay. I think it looks all right. You know for someone that doesn’t work with oils, I think I’m… I’m hanging in there. So I don’t know how much this can dry between now and tomorrow, but I’m going to give this 24 hours to dry and see if it won’t make it easier to add our ghost fish and our clouds on top and maybe some stars and some sparkles and details, so I will see you guys in 24 hours when this dries or It dries a little bit because it’s not going to ry. Okay, so it has been 24 hours since I put this coat on and to no ones surprise it is still very wet. So I’m just going to do my best to put the clouds and the fish on as best as I can because I know it’s it’s still wet. It’s tacky. It’s probably just going to mix in with the previous layer, but we are just going to try our best. Do you guys want to watch a disaster? Let’s do it. Let’s let’s make a disaster here. Okay. So first off I do know that I want to put clouds… over the moon here. We’re picking up some of that gray. Oh boy. The disaster begins. And because I’m so scared to press down too hard I’m afraid that our layer of paint is going to be so thick it’s just never going to dry. This cloud is definitely a lot more gray than I would like because it’s picking up so much great under the cloud, but you know… But because I am painting on wet oils, I’m going to go ahead and just say that it’s still successful. One thing I do kind of regret is that I wanted to make the fish sort of transparent and it’s going to be kind of difficult with painting over the background. But the reason why I didn’t do that is because I knew if I painted around These fish and cloud shapes, it would only make it more difficult to do things like the water shine and the background gradient. I’m not skilled enough to do that sort of thing. Obviously, I just don’t know what I’m doing when it comes to oils, but we’re going to try our best. So… Oh my gosh, I’m scared. But here we go. Actually if it’s a ghost fish, it might just be really interesting if their eyes are just empty holes, so I might just leave it like that. Maybe I’ll try to give him a scaly texture and that could help with Making him look a little clearer because I’ll be picking up the background color a little bit. Does that look like a ghost fish? It kind of just looks like a weird… a weird thing. And because I want to use the pallet knife to do some painting, let’s use the pallet knife to create The water shine… Oh My gosh, that’s so bad looking. That was a lot of paint too. Holy heck. I didn’t mean to put that much paint down. That’s never gonna dry, is it? Oh, no. I don’t know how I feel about that, but it’s not as disastrous as I thought it was going to end up being so let’s just continue painting some more ghost fish. Oh, I forgot their eyes… Well, let’s just say as the ghost fish thing to the background they lose detail. Yeah? Great. Okay, I’m just going to add some additional wavy details in the water to make it look less…. Plain? Stagnant, I guess. Oh, you know what I should do? My classic birds in the sky like a five-year-old. Let’s do it. Oh my gosh. Wow. Great. Is that it? Are we done? Oh my gosh. I’m afraid to touch it. So I know the edges are still wet, but here we go. All right. Guys, thank you so much for watching my oil painting disaster. I… I don’t know. It’s oil painting. I feel like I just don’t have the patience for it and I never will.

  1. I hate oils too! Oil paint is just in general just very frustrating. Art is already hard, oil paint seems like a way to make it harder for no reason lmao. Though I CAN understand where it would be appealing for other people. If you have a more realistic style, you're gonna be spending a lot of time painting anyway, and you can take your time blending and mixing colors to make it look right. And being able to leave your art for days without worrying about it drying before you're done, not being able to mix the same color again etc would be better for someone with a more sporadic or busy schedule and could only spend a small amount of time on the painting any given day. Definitely not for me though

  2. You could bake it in the oven just keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn I've done it before not sure if it will work on canvases I've only baked paintings I've done on metal

  3. I understand you So so much , I am an extremely inpatient artist because I nearly only use copics,
    Paint for me is death
    But I love how you made the sky ! It’s so beautiful 😍

  4. Brave lady. I tried oil paint for basically a whole semester in art class and it wasn’t for me at all! (I ended up donating my paints to the local library.) just the whole drying time and smelliness and mess was eugh. Plus two-three week turnaround for an assignment in oils was insane. I will say having mediums helps A LOT. Most used: liquin… which speeds up drying time and thins them down. 😬😅

    Everyone kept telling me how much I’d like oils, too….. just way too impatient!

  5. Yeah, I don't like oils that much either. Even if I have made two paintings.
    I don't like pastels either, they're too messy for my taste.

  6. Oil paints are my absolute favourite 😍😍 if you want to give them a fair go use the walnut oil, it helps smooth out the oil paints. As well as the much needed paint thinners/ turpentine, (scentless spirits recommend) the turps helps thin the paint so it applys easier and better overall! (Ps I LOVE THE PAINTING DUDE! Great job 😉)

  7. I hate oils because of the smell, I can't stand it, and plus the turpentine is, just… so smelly!!! The efect is nice and how the layers are wet for long time but… I can't!!

  8. Kasey, you did amazingly. It is such a difficult medium to use, but you really embraced it. You’re used to seeing your art a certain way, but this screams of a Kasey art piece. The discomfort is simply from adapting to a new medium.

  9. I don't have the patience for the drying time either and the solvents make me nauseous. I enjoy watercolor and acrylics a lot more

  10. I can see you're trying to do thin layers so itd dry faster but I'd really suggest going THICC it makes it easy to blend, cover the canvas smoother and can add some awesome texture if you're doing water. 🙂

    Edit: also I'd suggest putting a thin layer of a white oil and oil mixture down first because that helps everything blend together and go on the canvas smooth. Okay I'll stop bye XD

  11. The nature of oil paints and your artstyle just don't match. I think oils are generally not suited for an illustrative, graphic style. But seeing you struggle is really entertaining, haha 😀

  12. 3:40 Nope. Oils aren't the most toxic. Oils are actually often the same product you find in cosmetics or with wallnut oil put in food (don't drink or eat artist oils, they are not geared toward food consumption and lack adherence to restrict food safety regulations). HOWEVER the pigments in oils can be deadly not all but some. So if you don't know what pigments are in the oil paint never never never ever use your fingers, that's what brushes, pallet knives and other tools are for. Take a chip of card board if nothing else is at hand.

  13. I'm glad you didn't let the walnut oil scare you off – you definitely needed it with this brand of oils to get a workable consistency for smooth work. Hopefully the painting should be ok after 4 or so days in most areas as you painted so thin (its only really the thick impasto areas that could take longer) I wish they included an alkyd medium instead of walnut though – It SPEEDS UP the drying time to mostly overnight which is great! HMU if you have oils questions anytime <3

  14. Painting looks really good 🙂 🐟🌕
    I once used acrylic paint 🎨 first then used oil 🖌 and the end result wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be

  15. Oil paintings need at least 6 months to dry before you can varnish them 😫
    I know Turpentine can clean 🧼 oil paint off your paint brushes 🖌 but Dawn dish washing soap also works fine, just that it’s best to leave Turpernoid in an un used Mason Jar and to not let oil paint go down the sink since it’s toxic to the fishes 🐟 and the ocean 🌊 :/ If only making art can be more eco friendly ♻️
    I think Turpenoid is better since it’s odorless and oil paint itself the smell is pretty strong, similar to how Sharpie markers create lingering strong odors.
    You can also use Dove 🕊 soap bars to clean your paint brushes but I usually do this with my acrylic paint brushes.

  16. When I was a kid we had several oil painting around my house, and I remember them being there ever since I was born! Sometimes, I would get bored and pick at the little tips in the paintings AND THEY WOULD STILL BE WET UNDERNEATH!! It puzzled me so much! How could they still be wet after all those years!? Anyway, reading the comments here… I get it now…

  17. Lots of people oil paint Alla prima which is painting all at once without waiting for layers to dry. You just have to come with a different technique for it but it is posible

  18. Kasey, get two metal cups, fill one about a quarter of the way with solvent (gamsol is good), the other the same amount with the oil, and then when you want to change the consistency of what's on your brush, give it a quick dip in one of those two. That might help if there's a next time? Also get a glass palette for this–if you have like, a picture frame you don't need, the glass in that will work! Easier to clean, and doesn't waste watercolor paper lol

  19. I cringed so much when you poured the oil straight over the paints, there's nothing wrong with that but one time I added too much oil and it didn't dry because there was more oil than paint

  20. I quite like the way this turned out!
    You can mix oil paints with turpentine to make it thinner instead of oil, it doesn't add sheen but it does dry a lot quicker (you can bring back sheen with a shiny varnish though). Oils dry because they form bonds with oxygen, not because the oil evaporates, like alcohol or water based art supplies do, so if you mix it with a solvent that does evaporate it will dry more quickly 🙂
    If building layers you should put more fatty layers over the thin layers that are mixed with turpentine, otherwise the difference in drying time will cause top layers to crack. You can also use acrylics as a base colour and do the oils on top when they are dry.
    Another tip: oils aren't entirely opaque, so adding white on top will work as a highlight, not as a pure white. Oils are great for painting transluscent and shiny things because of this (and because of the drying time, you have plenty of time to blend haha) 🙂

    Hope that might be help someone! 🙂

  21. Wow, that is a painting to be proud of, I would be very happy to be able to create such a good painting. You did good Kasey!

  22. You can use linseed oil to thin out the pigment so you could spread it out better and also wash your brush out in paint thinner but don't leave it in for too long because the plastic may dissolve

  23. I hate everything that you need a brush for. I don't have the patience for acrylic paint, watercolor, oils what everXD
    Markers it isX3

  24. Admittedly I've never used oil paints. I am legit SCARED. I loved the final painting though. Between when this was filmed and now, did it dry?

  25. Hey Kasey! Just a tip! If you use the oil included in the box(just a tiny bit will do) it will help the paint thin out and flow better onto the canvas. It makes a tremendous difference in the overall look of the painting and make the paint application a LOT easier. I used to be afraid of oil paint too, but once you figure out how the medium works it’s not half bad. Also, the more u thin the paint out with either mineral spirits or linseed oil, the “quicker” it will dry. ❤️ Hope this helps!

  26. You can use white spirit (or at least that's what we call it in the UK) to thin down the oil paint without having to deal with it drying slower. Make sure you have a cloth aside where to clean your brush so your white spirit stays as clean as possible. Also, you don't really have to mix the paint with a palette knife if you're not using a lot of the same colour.
    Edit: Tbh just watch a video by Robin Sealark on YT. She's amazing and def knows what she's talking about

  27. You should try to use the walnut oil when mixing and applying the paint on the canvas, that way the paint will flow a lot better and will get into all creeks and crevices. You can also apply some of the oil with the brush to dilute the paint and remove it directly from the canvas.

  28. I love how this came out! I feel like having the white blending with the background water makes the ghost fish look transparent and really gives the ghostly vibe you were looking for

  29. Kasey, the reason you were getting a patchy result w/o the oil was because you're meant to use a lot more paint than that, you were making a little last too far.

  30. Payne’s grey is my favourite colour…. That Payne’s Grey is a bit disappointing 😱 your painting was cute… maybe a bigger brush might of helped? I love working in oil paints, but they are vastly different to watercolour, and just like watercolour there are a few tricks to using them.

  31. I really love your final painting here! It's beautifully eery with the starless full moon sky and the still sea with ghost fish peeking out of the water everywhere creepily.

  32. Sooo….without solvent to clean your brush, how are you supposed to clean that new brush and palette knife? Not impressed by this months box.

  33. I can't stand unpainted edges either. My ex had a painting done by his sister (it was a silhouette on a sunset so bright + dark colors) and she didn't paint the edges yet they had brush strokes from where her brush met the edge of the main area of the canvas. He actually got mad when I said it looked bad to me because she hadn't painted them.
    For the record his sister was 20 at the time and I didn't say it in front of her… The actual painting was good which I had told her.

  34. You gotta gesso and sand your canvas if you want it smooth. Usually a few layers of gesso with sanding in between each. It's annoying that they don't send you canvas that's actually ready to use. That texture is so hard on brushes especially.

  35. [Read in british accent]
    " It's said that, to this day, millions of fish ghosts gather in a single place, and stick outside of the water to get dry in the bright moonlight… but its believed that they were never able to… because its oil paint >:[ "

  36. My art enemy would be..
    DRUMROLL
    Acrylics!
    They dry too quicky and I can't achieve smooth gradients with them like i can with oils.

  37. My area sells Water-Soluble oils by Winsor and Newton. I've never experienced "legit" oils, but using water-soluble was really fun because you could, well, 'water' down the paint if necessary and there weren't any harmful fumes! The water addition would also speed the drying time somewhat. It was good for my intro-to-painting class, which was in an art room with literally no ventilation at all (quality college funding y'all!) Also, there are products that make the drying time faster, too!
    Regardless of your hesitation for this medium, that piece turned out really lovely and I enjoy the spoopy aspect of the ghosty fish <3
    My enemy is markers- I've always been cursed with streaky drawings and I just give up right away.

  38. Oh no! you are missing a panel. I got three in my box. XP

    btw, I think the birds at the end look like bats. fits the theme! 💜

  39. i dont have a art enemy, i dont know how tho. i like and do every media time to time, gouache to markers, i use and love them all

  40. I am with you. I don't use them and don't like that it takes so long for them to dry. I did a cat on the tiny canvas but could not get the nose/mouth right because the colors kept mixing together and it is still wet days later. 🙁 I got discouraged and haven't wanted to try the other ideas I had because it was such a huge mess and I have nowhere to keep the wet paintings! Thanks for sharing.

  41. man I love watercolor but it's just… so unforgiving!! gah! you make one mistake and you can't fix iiiiit and it's hard to do shadinnnnggg!!!

  42. Am I the only one who remembers she said she would reveal Dave’s face after a million subs?? Also congrats kasey!!! I have been around for
    About 2 years now and I’m so happy you hit such a big milestone! I still remember when you did that giveaway for 100k haha.

  43. If you ever use oils again and you want a super smooth canvas, get some gesso and a wall paint sanding sponge. Then just add a few layers of gesso and when it’s dry use the sanding sponge in circular motions. And also linseed actually helps dry the paint! You may not have used enough is all

  44. Kasey golden i love your drawings but you really need to watch nerdEcrafter's latest vid beacause just watch it im actually very serious because you might get demonetized

  45. Hey Kasey, I’m so proud of you for hitting 1M!! I have been here for a long time and to see you hit 1M makes me so happy. You deserve it so much! You always work so hard to keep up with everything and you always keep content going. Seeing all your hard work pay off is amazing. You have came so far. Love you Kasey 🙂 💕
