This class will be recorded: access for 90-days
Surface: select a surface of your choice that can
accommodate a design measuring 11" X 17." I have scanned the original
line drawing to allow it to print on letter-size paper. France has indicated,
her original is larger 18
1/2" x 26 1/2" x 1". and
must be enlarged to 169%. You can purchase the surface she painted this design
on at -
Narrative: You asked for it, so here is your opportunity to paint a Santa and toys with France. This will definitely be a family heirloom, it is strikingly beautiful. The surface France used is shaped like a large ornament but you can select something of your choice. She floats both traditionally and has an alternate method for those who struggle with floating.
