First Tip to painting icons is to make sure you have a clear prototype or picture of the desired saint you will be painting. Having this is so important because we here in the USA do not have originals to look and copy the images. We must rely strictly on books while learning. Icons are new to the USA and we as students can be easily swayed into thinking we can become icon painters overnight. Remember Books, Look at Books! with good icons in them.
