Glossary

Word of the Day!



ukiyo-e

Japanese for 'pictures of the floating world'. Ukiyo-e were popular in the seventeenth to nineteenth-centuries, and depicted kabuki actors, landscapes, and folk tales.

Example: Kitagawa Utamaro's Five Kinds of Ink from the Northern Provinces, early 1790's

ultramarine

Blue pigment originally made from ground lapis lazuli. French ultramarine is an artificial substitute.

undercut

Carving to create an overhang; a recess or awkward angle in the surface or form of a three-dimensional object which would prevent easy removal of a cast from a mold. Molds should be designed to eliminate this problem. Ways to cast objects with overhangs include using piece molds and waste molds.

underdrawing

Drawing preliminary to other work, and incorporated into it, thus deprived of independent artistic value. An example is the underdrawing in fresco and panel painting, such as sinopia and abbozzo.

underpainting

The layer or layers of color on a painting surface applied before the overpainting, or final coat. There are many types of underpainting. One type is an all-over tinting of a white ground. Another is a blocked out image in diluted oil colors that serves as a guide for the painter while developing the composition and color effects.

I have used Delta glass paints for years. They were wonderful. The "new" batch is awful. Too thick, hate the opening, and I still have votive glasses painted with old version. New stuff is coming off. Very disappointed.

I paint with a knife and I paint a lot. I have been using Galleria exclusively for several years. I think I can say with confidence that there is not a better paint to use if you paint with a knife. I'm new to Mister Art. I'm sure their service will be as good as their paint.

I love your soy paints for my crafts. Sadly this product is no longer available at Joanne's or any other craft stores I visit. This paint is true in color, dries quickly, and if you need to cover up a mistake or start over, this paint covers up better than any other brand I have used. Especially your white onion and mushroom are a life saver for all projects. I do not understand why this product is not more popular. I brag about it all the time, especially to the craft stores. If you are a true crafter your paint, is important. Your soy paints are pure quality for all my project, and I am sad to not see them on the shelves anymore! Big Mistake; if only they had tried just one bottle of this wonderful product. That was how I learned how good they were by giving them a try.
