    Unusual painted things

Get the Inside Scoop on Unusual Painted Things

Unusual painted things are everywhere. Crude paints were used to decorate the inside of prehistoric caves and these paints were made from natural materials. Since the dawn of man, people have been getting creative with paint.


One shining modern example of unusual painted things is the artwork made by Tim Patch, who hails from Australia and uses a typically-private part of his anatomy as an ersatz paintbrush! This isn't something that you should try at home. If you do, be sure to use non-toxic paint!


Other unusual painted things include grains of rice! Some artists paint these tiny grains. Then, those who view them use magnification in order to see the results. These paintings on rice are sometimes mind-boggling in terms of their detail and realism.


Art is a process of discovery and artists definitely stretch the boundaries by finding new and unusual things to adorn with paint. From tiny grains of rice to the street art of mysterious graffiti master, Banksy, whose graffiti has a very high level of artistic sophistication which makes it different, there are a world of unusual painted things to discover and appreciate.


Have You Heard of Body Painting?


Body painting is a new trend. Body painting has become a modern art form. Sometimes, the painting is so good that it's almost impossible to tell that the person who has been painted isn't wearing clothes. For example, Sports Illustrated swimsuit models were body-painted and some of the designs painted on looked just like bathing suits.


This is something that's kind of new and interesting. While makeup has been used to paint faces for centuries, and crude examples of body painting were definitely out there (especially in tribes, during ceremonies) hundreds and thousands of years ago, air brushing has given modern body painting artists a lot more options.


Now that you know just a sampling of unusual painted things, why not try to think up more examples? They are likely all around you. Whether it's a household item which doesn't normally get painted, such as a fridge or stove, or something that you see out on the street or while you're travelling, you should be able to come up with some unusual painted things of your own. Of course, if you can't, you may always pull out a paintbrush or roller and make your own!


Painting things is fulfilling and you may branch out by painting things that are out of the norm!
