Painters and decorators are often afflicted by tremors in their hands. This condition, known as “tremors neurosis” is characterized by trembling and shaking of the hand. DOCTORS have cured a painter suffering from this neurosis – with noise pulses. The noise was induced by a low-voltage light pulses pulsed through the patient’s skin. Most painters or sculptors who suffer from this neurosis have to undergo a torturous treatment to gain such recognition
Recently, a group of painters decided to band themselves together to form a union to help other painters suffering from this problem. The Union consists of ten painters and five decorators. These painters and decorators have undergone extensive training in the use of a device called masking tape. Each member of this union uses a specially designed masking tape to cover a part of his body – like the back of his head.
These painters and decorators do not use their painting masks on the actual painting. Instead, the masking tape is used to protect their eyes while still painting. The idea behind this technique is to prevent a “burning sensation” that occurs if the painter sits too close to the blue mask while painting. The masking tape, or more accurately blue tape, serves as an eye protection for the painters while still letting his imagination wander.
According to the painters who took part in the Bonded Art Therapy Association workshop in Denver, CO, each member of this union goes through a process where he “tames” his particular neurosis. Brushes, pastels, watercolors, and pastel crayons are the tools of the trade for these painters. When they are blended with blue medium-coated felt or foam, the bristles of the brush resemble tiny buttons. This does not mean that the bristles of the brush are buttons themselves. In fact, the word button comes from the Greek “konos” meaning knot.
Each member of this union paints a series of pictures onto pastel-colored boards. As he blends the pastel medium into the outer sash of the board, the painters’ minds and spirits are allowed to wander away from their everyday cares into the realm of his inner being. Each picture that he paints represents a part of his body; therefore, it is the job of the painter to make sure that he has painted each picture correctly – all the way down to the edges. He makes sure that all the bristles of his brush line up correctly – like the spokes of a tire – so that the picture gets a smooth, round appearance instead of a fuzzy, irregular one.
These painters are highly skilled professionals who are called in for special occasions such as wedding receptions, birthdays, parties, and other similar events. These people know how to bring a smile to faces – and this is the reason why they excel in their craft. They need to use latex paints because these paints allow them to be more precise in painting intricate designs onto objects. Without the use of these paints, painters would not be able to complete a full paint job.
Painters who work in the profession of masking tapes also know how to do their jobs. However, a masking tape may not be sufficient if the painter needs to decorate an object of great importance. In this case, the painter would need to enlist professional painters like the ones who work for hire. Indeed, these tapes are considered by some to be important elements of professional painters who know how to decorate objects with these tapes properly and how to do so without causing any damage to them.
In order to enhance their professional careers, some painters also try to learn how to decorate surfaces with these tapes. As long as they have mastered the basic technique of painting with the tapes and have a thorough understanding of the characteristics of the tape, they may proceed to decorate surfaces with these tapes and attain excellent results. After all, mastering how to decorate surfaces properly with the help of these tapes will enable the painter to achieve his or her dream painting job!
