    Confetti – Fluid Painting

    CONFETTI FLUID PAINTING About This Course I made my son a tryptic using this technique and it turned out fantastic. I enjoyed it so much I thought it would make a great project to share with the world.  Although I did not add resin on my son’s paintings, they were still amazing with the textures and bits of glitter.  Confetti is all about playing and letting go!  Nothing like playing with paint with your fingers.  You can chose to wear gloves…but..why?  HAHAHA.. This is a super quick painting to make, but takes some time patience for all the drying time. I use foiling in this painting but feel free to…

  • Flamingo M-D

    FLAMINGO MOON DANCERS https://vimeo.com/360187249 Teacher   Flamingo Moon Dance is part of another project I had made a few years ago.  I made a cello with the flamingos strumming on it and loved it so much.  But its a large painting and harder to show all of it during the video process. I was hoping to put up the course for that project, but the video quality is terrible.  It is one of my first attempts at videoing my projects… So, FMD is a smaller version and it was super fun to put together for you.
