POPPY POD is a super fun project that took me all of one day to create. Its a simple watercolor painting with a twist! This is a 5×7 painting on a blank watercolor paper card.
I show you step by step how to add all the little bits. You will be learning simple knots with fiber and some wire stitching to make leaves. You will also do a little bit of bead work too.
I have many close up images to guide you through the process.
I also have a bonus video on how to make your own needle punch. I suggest using some old polymer clay, and a 3 inch doll needle! I love my needles..
This is a watercolor project. I show you the basics with using watercolor paints. I also show how to stitch on paper including rosettes, making loops by hand using wire and sewing on seed beads.
Will I need special equipment?
You will need a needle punch and some thick foam of cardboard to protect your fingers while poking holes in the paper.
Where can I buy my supplies?
I provide a downloadable supply list with links to where I typically purchase my own supplies. Many times, Amazon has what I need. I do my best to keep your cost down as I know art supplies can be costly.
About how long will it take me to complete this project?
With any project, time varies on you and where you live. I live in California and paints dry super fast. Typical time, I would say this project can take 1 to 2 days. When I work on projects like this, I can be done in about 3 to 4 hours. But again, it depends on your skills, location, and how fast you like to work.
Is there anything else you teach in this course?
I show you how to make your own hole punch with polymer clay and an embroidery needle. Best little tool I ever made!!!
What if I get stuck and need some help?
I am here to help you with any issues you may come across. I do have a day job so certain times of the day I may not be able to assist you right away but I will do my best to respond as quickly as I can. You can contact me by email anytime.
I can also help you through Zoom in real time if needed.
