the scream

This famous painting by Edvard Munch has been originally titled as The Scream Of The Nature. It has been request on my blog last week. I hesitated making it because I was scared I was gonna mess it up. After a thorough thinking I decited I was gonna spread the masterpiece over all of the nails and not repeat the same image on eash nail. See for yourself how I made it. Let me know what’s your favourite painting or artist. I like Monet a lot :-D

I used a light grey for a base on land – Essence, Multi Dimension, 69 Movin’ On; and a darker grey for the rest of the land further in the back – Essence, Colour&Go, 35 Movie Star. Add some pastel blue for a better effect – Vollare, Nail Artistic, pastel blue. Apply orange waves over it.

Paint the black cloth a person is wearing – Essence, Multi Dimension, 20 Fatal; with the help of a thin brush. Paint the nose and the mouth with black, making dots with Essence’s Nail Art Stylist and cover it again with a nude nail polish. With nail art stylist also make eyes – yellow first, then brown and black for a pupil. Apply the pale gray – Essence, Multi Dimension, 69 Movin’ On; for the land on the right side of the painting, apply waves again – pastel green, orange and yellow.
