Painted Value Scale
The goal of this problem is to get even steps in value between white and black in a 9 stepped scale, to see values, to mix and apply acrylic paint. You will perceive many more values than nine; you want to mix the correct seven steps between white and black, to have an even progression of value through the scale.
Cut out at least nine 2" x 3" modules out of cold pressed illustration board. Be careful to get them the same size.
Paint one module with a soft flat brush with slightly diluted acrylic paint with your black paint, one module with your white paint.
It is better to paint several thin coats, rather than a thick coat. You want a surface free of texture.
Mix black and white together to get middle gray (half way VISUALLY) between black and white. This will not take equal amounts of black and white.
When middle gray is found, paint module #5 and a thin 1/2" by slightly more than 18"piece of illustration board with it. With left over middle gray paint, mix with white to visually find module #3(half way visually between white and MG). Do the same with MG and black to find #7. Use similar procedure (white and # 3 to find # 3 and # 5 to find # 4 etc.)
Glue the nine modules flush to each other with MG strip cemented underneath, on a sheet of illustration board 6 1/2 " H x 20" W (leave an inch border around the modules and strip).
This project is worth two grades.
