Let's take our watercolor to new surfaces!

Who says watercolor is just for paper?! We're going to paint on all the things! Gather items from around your house, and join us!

* All those other painting classes you've taken... now you can apply those skills to new projects like Jen did with this pear she learned in Whitney's class!

What you'll learn:

No longer limited to paper, we'll use watercolor on wood, metal, stone, you name it! Jen has spent the last year experimenting with Watercolor Ground and is ready to share all her tricks with us! 

  • Which ground Jen uses according to the project
  • Tips & tools for applying the watercolor ground
  • Learn hidden gems about applying watercolor ground (tinting, texturizing, correcting mistakes).
  • How to achieve watercolor bleed and blends on our new surfaces.
  • How to achieve a "watercolor" look on your new surface
  • How long to wait between steps and final surface sealing
  • Learn some of Jen's favorite designs as we play on our newly prepared objects
  • Tips specific to each surface type: metal, glass, stone, wood, etc.
  • And we always have to talk about problem solving and mistake corrections!
