Image from My Modern Met - Artist Chan Clayrene
Recently I was looking for tutorials on sketching fashion designs when I came across the work of artist Chan Clayrene (of Artclaytion) on My Modern Met. I was mesmerized by her beautiful illustrations. Surprisingly, she "uses nail polishes, both matte and sparkly, as the ink for her glamorous illustrations of haute couture gowns." One of her illustrations is shown above.
You can see more of her lovely work by visiting this post, Artist Creates Dazzling High Fashion Sketches with Carefully Coated Nail Polish. Although, Clayrene doesn't provide the details of her process, she does encourage artists to experiment.
Check out the complete article then pull out your favorite bottles of nail polish and get to work. I know that I'm going to try this idea.
