Will you Zoom with me? Let’s create together!
‘Apple Spice Bakery‘ in Acrylic & Colored Pencil on April 22nd and 29th at 6:00pm EST!
???To answer your questions??? ~ how do I sign up? what surface do I need? what about size and prep? Are both pieces included in the pattern? Is there a ‘free’ demo? How do I attach the paper/board? and more!
To Register simply click (here). This will take you to Cindy Harrison’s Artful Webinars ~ Cindy is the Host of the Zoom Program ~ I teach, she does all the techy stuff. This class is split over two days, four hours each day. April 22 & 29, 2021 at 6pm EST.
Once registered you will receive instructions via email. The instructions will include prep work to be completed prior to class. Both pieces shown in the image above are included in the pattern ~ we will be completing the ‘bread board’ image in class (larger piece). The other piece is a condensed version completed onto a bentwood box.
The line drawing you will receive will need to be sized to your surface. (Due to the nature of ‘computers’ ~ my saving images, printing and scanning to your computer and printer settings…..and to fit your surface chosen).
Here are some fun surface ideas!
The surface you will need is 140lb coldpress watercolor/illustration board. Purchase the board thru www.blicks.com and then cut the board to fit the size of the line drawing (after sizing) with an x-acto knife (cutting a little larger of course). You may purchase the watercolor board (here). I have also used 140lb coldpress illustration board, purchase (here). Either one will work just fine ~ I don’t have a preference one over the other. You may possibly find these boards thru Michaels or Hobby Lobby as well.
The boards are suitable for framing of course in any size ~ just simply enlarge or reduce your line drawing to fit your needs.
My hubby created a wood breadboard, similar to a vintage breadboard we have, then measured and cut the watercolor board to fit within the center of the breadboard. Then measured the line drawing and copied to the size needed.
Once the painting is complete attache the watercolor board to the breadboard with upholstery tacks…..pretty neat huh?
Another option is to find a wood box within your stash large enough for the design and adhere watercolor paper to the box to create the painting! (Remember we are doing the larger design in class). For this option use 140lb coldpress watercolor paper and adhere to your wood surface with DecoArt Decoupage. Then continue with sizing the line drawing to fit and the prep work.
If you like this option ~ you may find a blog post on how to adhere the watercolor paper to your wood surface (here) ~ you can also find a blog post (here) on how to finish the inside of the box.
During class learn all the fun techniques to create sweet desserts ~ cinnamon swirl, gooey icing, textured cake and dried fruit thru pencils and a paintbrush! Beginners welcome!
