Born in 1994, Cai Sunxiang currently is a junior student. From high school, he began studying painting and he loves handmade. We usually draw on paper, and drawing with nails is rarely heard. In fact, Cai Sunxiang has begun nail painting only for two months. Relying on talent and study, Cai Sunxiang already has a lot of works, he said, "Now it's just a hobby for me, but in the future I hope to finish nail painting on the walls."
"My father is a carpenter, I like playing his tools when I was a small boy." Cai Sunxiang said that he was deeply influenced by his father, "one day, I saw an article about nails painting, and I thought I can take a try." A piece of wood, a hammer, a pile of nails and a few bundles of wool are painting tools for Cai Sunxiang. "I am self-taught, I blieve practice makes perfect.” He said.
Wool is also a tool for creation.
Worksheet of nails painting
Each painting is nailed by hand, and it is inevitable to be injured. Cai Sunxiang said, “It looks simple, but it is difficult indeed. It requires a little bit of research on different levels and lines, as well as color matching. Sometimes when it's wrapped wrong for one step, you may need to re-wrap again, which requires enough patience and some skill. "
How many nails does a painting need? Cai Sunxiang said, "Since my work is not big now, generally about two and three hundred nails are enough, and it needs about three days to finish a work."
The work of Labyrinth takes a long time.
