Dot painting needs fluidic acrylic colours. This is the most important thing according to me. Designs, tools and precision will come with practice. I have tried and failed with many dot painting projects in the past because I had acrylic colours with wrong consistency. Make sure that the ones you are using have pourable quality.
Dot painting can be done on variety of surfaces. I have tried on MDF wood made coasters, magnets and earrings. This was when I was so new to dotting.
Eventually I got myself “the” tools. Dotting tools are usually better known as nail art tools, I think. These tools are shared between the communities as they achieve the same purpose with nail polish I think. These tools have pens with different dot sizes. There are also glass rods that you get shot different circumference sizes.
I had ordered these https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32926450694.html?spm=a2g0n.orderlist-amp.item.32926450694&aff_trace_key=&aff_platform=msite&m_page_id=9042amp-7w7mxbn8qYWtAflN6Q71sw1618563629387&browser_id=&is_c=
Recently I have recorded my dotting session. I used a canvas of 25 *30cm from Crelando and then on a pebble. Even though the designs are simple, I enjoyed making them. I have a long way to go on this entire process. Still have to master two or three layered dots and not getting offset while recording a video 😂🙄😅
