E-PAINTING PATTERN-Folk Art -Tole Painting - Stroke Design by Artist Susan Abdella

E-Painting Pattern - This is a Traditional Tole Painting Stroke Work Design by artist Susan Abdella. 

Tole Painting is an old style of Folk Art. Historically, German farmers and town's people who immigrated to the North Eastern areas of the USA, mostly the Pennsylvania region,would decorate their everyday kitchen and domestic wares using simple stroke designs. This style of art was called Tole Painting. Meaning painting on tin wares.

Tole Painting resurfaced during the 1960's when decorative art teachers began teaching this simple style of painting in their local art studios. This popularity gave birth to hundreds of Tole painting art shops across the USA and Canada. Today, the painted items are still highly prized and collectible as a treasured form of Folk Art!



In this Tole painting lesson...

Artist and teacher Susan Abdella will teach you how to re-create this simple Folk Art stroke design. Learn how to paint this pretty stroke design on a tin teapot or coffee pot. While Susan uses a tin coffee pot as her surface of choice, with a little imagination, the pattern can be modified and adjusted to fit many other surfaces.

  • Susan provides the written instructions, and the line drawing for your use.
  • This painting pattern uses DecoArt Traditions Artist's Acrylics. This design can be painted with any similar acrylic paint.

    Mixing colours is so much fun, we really do not need 100's of pots of paint. My mixing wasn't exactly right the contrasts were too severe!That is OK will learn and remember and that is the whole point of the exercise. I've learnt several other things from this project to. Thank you for a super design.
