Posca Pen Painting on METAL?! (satisfying)


Are you guys ready to paint on metal? [tap tap] [high pitched voice] Little buddy, you’re about to get a little makeover! This is gonna be a fun time. Jokes aside, I’m on my third cup of coffee today. Let’s just preface this by saying I usually only have like one, to one and a half cups, but I’ve had all of this plus some tea so like: We are caffeinated, we are *ready* to do some art. The creative energy is flowing and I’m in a good mood. So let’s do it! [music] Our faithful Posca Pens will be at our side and we have all sorts of fun things to paint like this piece of metal. It’s not super reflective, it’s like prepped and ready for us, so that’s cool. [whisper] You can hang it up on the wall. I’m really excited about this one. We also have this one. So with that being said, let’s dive in, because I listened to your comments. That means one of you guys is gonna have your art suggestion featured in this video, so… [low voice] That’s really cool. And as I said, the creative energy is really flowing in this room tonight, so we are going to do a lot of art projects. Alright with that being said, let’s make some art! I think we’re gonna paint a cat. Remember when I used to do my animals and clothes series? It’s gonna be kind of like that one. [music] Should I do a mint colored background or a mint colored outfit? That’s a toughy. I think a pink background, right? While we are making art on metal, let’s talk about today’s sponsor, which is Audible! Thank you so much, Audible, for sponsoring today’s video. Audible is a leading provider of audiobooks ranging from entertainment to self-improvement to fitness to news articles. There’s literally thousands of things to choose from on there. How it works: every month members get one credit for any title on the platform, and then you also get two credits for a monthly selection of audible originals. I’m actually like a huge sci-fi, post-apocalyptic junkie, so all those audiobooks are like really up my alley. Right now, I’m listening to Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. I actually got this recommendation from my family and it’s been an amazing audiobook. I’m really enjoying it. Yesterday, I listened to over five hours and I only intended to maybe listen to 20 minutes, but I couldn’t stop. It was really good. My favorite thing about Audible is that syncs across devices. So, when I’m working I always have my computer right here and I’m listening to audiobooks. But say I have to go somewhere later – boom. Right on my phone, listening in my car. It’s amazing. Since we’re still fresh into 2020, Audible wants to help you achieve your goals and invest in yourself. So there are tons of titles to choose from on that, ranging from fitness to self-development, the list goes on. And guess what, guys? If you want your first month of Audible for free, Go to Audible.com/Mira, or text “Mira” to 500-500! Once again, that is audible.com/Mira or text Mira to 500-500! [music] Oh, I’m so excited about this! [music] Oh, my goodness, this is so fun! It’s so easy to blend on metal. It’s like wild! This makes me feel like the world is an oyster – And the oyster is ours. [she says stuff like this all the time, everyone. it’s out of control.] [music] The eyes look really creepy right now – we’ll get to them later. So, I want to do a bow tie for sure, and maybe… Uh, I don’t know some sort of striped sweater, man. Yeah? Maybe? Let’s see. [music] I think it’s time to paint the eyes.. [music] I don’t think I actually want to do a bowtie. I kind of think I want to do like a really fuzzy sweater. So I’m digging this giant collar. I’m afraid this marker is gonna explode, because I’ve like pressed it down three times – nothing has come out! But sometimes that means something really bad is coming. I have a foreboding feeling, I’m like scared now. Let’s just set you over here! Okay, this background is looking like a mess, We got to get that under control. [music] That background reminds me of a PowerPoint gradient! I’m digging it. [music] Ooo, look at those eyes! Oh, he needs some little whiskers doesn’t he? [music] The cat is done. Little, baby! I love the eyes! Better sand this bad boy. Ew, I hate this. I hate this so much. The first one didn’t need sanded because it was like treated and ready to paint. This is just disgusting. We’ll start with our lid. One of you guys suggested that I customized something with avocados. I do read your comments! I try to heart most of them, try to reply to as many as I can, and I just love seeing what you guys say. [music] We’re doing a bright pink background, okay? Well, we have this part. I have like metal sand *everywhere* Yo, coloring the edges of this may have been a bad idea… My hands smell like metal and they feel like I just need to wash them, because I sanded that. Let’s outline these. [music] Did you guys know that avocados are one of my favorite foods? I know a stereotypical millennial, but I’m embracing it. Alright, here’s the game of the day: If you guys can guess my other favorite food aside from avocados, I will give you a gold star in the comments. They are all gonna have pits. [music] I did some sprucing up off-camera, because the top layer just needed some help. So my technique is more like stippling on this. Guys, I have a lot of coffee in my system – apologies for the weird video… I made a little bit of purple shading might help too. It’s kind of fun to do all these funky colors. [music] Ooo the details… So far I’m really digging this. It’s fun to just like add hints of other colors in. [music] These little guys are so cute! See their little blush? Okay, I think we need to do some sort of highlighting on the actual seed of the avocado. [music] Got the box and here is the lid. Oh my word. My heart is melting right now. So this one was recommended from a subscriber. Thank you for recommending this! I love it. This one is so ridiculously reflective that it’s like, whoa. I think we’re only gonna do the lid on this one, Because it’s really hard to sand the edges of this with these grooves. It didn’t work out super well for the last box. And it’s not that fun to do the sides, anyway. Like I don’t enjoy it. I think the lid is enough for me. If I change my mind later, then yeah, whatever. [music] I know I’ve done this in the past, but it’s really fun. I’m trying to do an aurora, okay? It’s just not quite working out right now. [music] Man, I always do this. Let’s experience the power of layering. Because we need help right now. Now, how are we gonna do that? Stippling. [music] They’re gonna be *enormous* stars. [music] Yo, this is a lot of stars. We’re having fun, right? I honestly thought I destroyed this when I started trying to blend things. But now I’m pretty happy with it. All right, I gotta say this was so fun. I did not think that painting on metal would be as fun as painting on wood. Oh, yeah, by the way, I painted on wood with Posca Pens and that’s what inspired this video. So I will link the wood one down below, but let’s do a recap, okay? I got this cute little kitty. Would you hang this on your wall? Let me know in the comment. Here’s our cute little avocado box. And then we have the quickest one. All right, these were all our painting on metal projects. I hope you enjoyed this and if you have any other video suggestions feel welcome to drop them down below. Because I do read your comments I read this, from one of you. Thank you guys so much for watching! If you’re new, feel free to subscribe, and join the art family and let me know if you joined the art family, cuz I like to welcome you with a little message. Anyway, I love you guys. Bye!

How about you do something with corn ๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒฝ๐ŸŒฝ

Hey Mira Another great video!!!!! I loved all 3 of your projects but my most favorite was the avocado ๐Ÿฅ‘ metal box so stinking adorable ๐Ÿฅฐ.

Your second favorite food I donโ€™t know why I think itโ€™s this and Iโ€™m probably way off with this but there arenโ€™t many people besides my grandpa who I knew that ate pizza with anchovies? Itโ€™s weird right? I thought it was. Someone whose videos I watch does like . I just donโ€™t remember who….lol. Great video though. I just ordered a bunch of POSCA PENS for myself just to have for my sketchbook.

I think your other favorite food is coffeeโ˜•. Also I think a good video idea is painting on a wall, door or furniture! ๐Ÿ˜€

I will never be lucky enough for you to reply ๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ’•

Also where can I get one of these ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Awww the kitty is so cute!! ๐Ÿ’– I just got my first set of posca pens so you know I'm gonna have to try this now! Lol

Love your vlogs! Maybe do a large tin with a golden retriever (my service dog) or german shepherds on honor of our military working dogs that need good homes.

Oh my goodness! That cat looks amazing!! ๐Ÿ˜
The avocados melted my heart though! They're so happy!!
You can never have too many stars ๐Ÿ˜‰
Hmmm… Is your other favourite food asparagus? (No idea where that came from!)

Itโ€™s not only thatโ€™s it is so much fun to watch your videos and the way you made everything seems to be so easy but it is you your own personality and that enormous good vibe that comes with it. Thank you so much for all the front camera and back stage effort. Lots of love for u

Great fun Mira! I really enjoyed watching you enjoying your coffee high with Posca pens ๐Ÿ˜‚โ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

If the sanding sends your teeth on edge just use some scotchbrite. Itโ€™s much softer and itโ€™s good enough for paint to stick to a car. Been using it on car panels for years.

I was drawing with poscas on metal recently and it didn't stick at all. Well, that's a lie, after 5 layers it did stick. It was quite challenging

New sub here, my new years resolution was to be more artistic and watch/do art. You, waffles and baylee are helping me embrace it! I'm not naturally artistic so it's fascinating seeing you come up with such beautiful art out of nothing. โค๏ธ

Omg mira I thought I was the only one obsessed with audible. Is your second favourite food cheese? ๐Ÿ˜‚ And next time can you draw something with like flowers and trees that would be amazing. Love your videos and you the content is so good ๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’•. Love you mira. I love all the designs they are so cute!

Hey Ms. Mira!! So my cousin just had a baby and he is the cutest little thing!! But…… I canโ€™t be with him cause we live in different states๐Ÿ˜ฃ and I really miss seeing him I have pics of him everywhere!!! And it would be really cool and mean a lot if you painted a beautiful picture of a mom and baby!!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ โค๏ธ

Her skills are there but however her creativity or she doesnโ€™t put a lot in her art work Iโ€™ve watched her for awhile now to see if she has progressed but nothing has changed so maybe it might now ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Please can you make a billie Eilish tutorial

And I want to guess your second favorite food maybe burger ๐Ÿ”or maybe French fries ๐ŸŸ

I know I'm late and you may not see my comment

I know you like to do fun stuff but would you consider doing something that really tests the limits of your abilities? I think it would be a good way to showcase your talent.

I love you so much and you inspire me to keep drawing โคdo you think you can draw a pineapple or something do to mermaids๐Ÿ˜‰

Question: I hope this is not a dumb question but can you paint with Posca's. I mean could I like paint with a paint brush and a little bit of posca ink. Does that make sense.

This was the first thing Iโ€™ve seen of your but loved to watch how happy and full of life you are! ๐Ÿ˜€ Made me happy

Do you draw snails? I watched a vid and she was drawing snails and inspiration hit so I like love snails now. Drawing them and real ones๐ŸŒ

I like you because youโ€™re calm and you never give up and what you want and when you mess up on something you just make into a masterpiece

I think I should Paint ๐ŸŽจ I think that you should like put on your wall and stuff like that paintings like youโ€™re paying on it so I donโ€™t know how to explain it but hope you like it and ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿป
