    Most Disliked Art Medium

    What is your most hated/disliked/unfavoured art medium and why?

    I'm not a big fan of colored pencils (any kind). Mainly because I can never get the color that I want and if i do its because I had to buy an enormous set. And the only time you can mix is if you press the shit out of it. Plus the texture is everywhere, and it can't be helped. Not to mention the fact that I'm completely terrible with them.

    oh oh oh, and crayons. Very difficult (and uneffective) when life drawing.

    hmm, thats a tough one...Lithography! I like evrything except lithography....gotta keep the stone wet, gotta keep the stone wet....quickly roll on the ink, through the press....aaaahhhhh the stone is almost dry....

    yeah, not for me thank you. One semester is enough.

    Intaglio on the other hand....or even better, Monotypes....ah, nevermind

    I'd have to say color pencils. Maybe I just suck, but they never mix appropriately. Another medium? I'd say acrylics... Not enough blend there either. Then again, I have little painting skill, so.....

    Starting over.

    Yeah, any printing just seems stupid to me and I hate it too. 100 years ago it seemed useful, but now, WE GOT PRINTERS!!!! AHHAHAHAHAHA!!!! The thing I hate the most is using a potter's wheel to turn pots. Some may find it soothing, but I find it wet and messy and I don't like the way I have to sit on the things. Sculpting isn't bad, I like sculpting, but I hate turning a pot on those things. I also don’t like wire sculpting that much b/c the wire cuts the crap out of me and I nearly put my eye out every time I do something with it (even just making an armature for a sculpture).

    i HATE clay...fuck that drying mudy material. if i were to sculpt something, i would be smart enough to ignore clay and use modeling epoxy, super sculpey, or anything else that is better than clay. it is a huge pain in the ass to keep the clay moist, it is damn impossible to keep the clay moist with out ruining your awesome detail on your sculpter. also like bracomadar said...turning pots on a wheel sucks...sometimes i go to fast and totally annihlate my awesome pot. geez, bisqueware and greenware clay is t3h shite.

    hah! yeah, I dropped print for sculpture because hell, if I wanted to print something I'll just load up photoshop and hit print. . . .bing bang boom. . thats how its done. All the intaglio and relief. . . .2 words people. . . .bas relief. Get to know plugins and get rid of printmaking

    jk, i should take it though. . . couple months of printmaking wouldn't hurt that much

    Actually printmaking is really cool (except for litho). Take it, you'll never get a thinner line than in Intaglio....the crosshatching possibilities are endless...

    But Monotypes take the prize....

    Oil paints. They stink, they're hazardous and they take forever to dry.




    But at the same time nothing looks or feels quite like an oil painting.

    I dont understand why you guys dont like pencil crayons?! In combination with "wet" media (watercolor/gouche) they rock!!! I think its nonsense to exclusively use one medium on its own....when mixed they can be way more affected, since alot of media have their advantages/disadvantages...

    anyway.....


    @rev - yeah. you're a freak!!! multicolored lithos?! kiddin' dude...whatever makes ya happy.
