Basic Shapes, Continued
Cones are less easy to airbrush for they require some judgment in the shape
of irregular forms. When airbrushing cones, work from light to dark.
To airbrush cones:
Draw a dark outline of a cone.
Place a frisket over the drawing and remove the area to be painted.
Apply a light tone to the left and right side of the cone extending
slightly along the base.
Using the same tone. Paint triangular shapes on each side of the
cone from the apex to the base slightly in from the frisket. A raised
mask will soften the edges of the paint.
Apply a darker tone on each side overlapping the frisket.
Use a raised mask and apply a dark tone to the center of the light-
toned triangular shapes.
Once dry, remove the frisket.
Clean up the drawing, touch up by hand with a paint brush.
