Learn to Paint Your Wood Carvings! ~ NEW
Do you struggle with painting your wood carvings? Cindy Can Help!
In this class you will learn how to prepare for paint, apply color in washes, dry brushing, and antiquing applications. We will deepen shadows, pop highlights and finish with sealants and waxes too.
You bring One or Two of your finished carvings and we will paint as a class. Individual One on One advice will be given, we will answer lots of questions as a group and walk through the process together. Some color theory will be covered and tonal value will also be discussed. The ideal carvings to paint would be caricature, animals, folk art, whittled and relief carvings.
