The Hand Painted Moment
Carefully placed brushstrokes hold in them a raging river of emotion; the unspeakable kind of feeling that sends a shiver down your neck when you gaze at a sunset or warms your cheeks when you receive a long awaited embrace…
At the heart of a Momental Design is a collection of painting techniques we bring to you…a collection meant to inspire your Hand Painted Moment.
And so let’s begin.
Contrast Shimmer Painted
Our contrast technique is the beginning here, with finishing brushstrokes over top in shimmering inks.
We describe the Contrast technique like this…imagine thick, opaque inks applied heavily onto darker color stocks like gold, champagne or ever deep emerald. The artwork simply pops off the page with contrast and texture!
As the name implies, the Gilded hand painting technique involves the application of heavy gold detailing throughout the artwork on the page.
We will often accent an invitation layout with free hand brushstroke frames. We find this technique the perfect way to add a bit of structure to your design but without losing the softness of your overall aesthetic.
Layer upon layer of stripes in various paint mediums create the look of an inspiring sky or perhaps a calm ocean. When dry, these many brushtrokes stand up off the page to simply wow.
Our signature painting technique especially lovely when we’re reproducing highly detailed artwork from its original and want a shimmery touch of detail to catch the eye.
Not all watercolor washes are created equal. This technique was the start of it all and remains a favorite. Whispers of color or bold brushstrokes flow together with a touch of water.
