This darling Christmas piece is perfect for holiday decorating or gift giving! In this video tutorial lesson you will learn a very fast, easy and very effective way to dry brush for a perfect white value under-painting. The white underpainting allows you to acheive clear vibrant colors on the dark background. These cute designs can be adapted for many different surfaces and the sled would also make a great wall hanging. The top of the sleigh painting surface is 4 1/2" by 18" and can easily be adapted to any size you want. The overall length of the sleigh is 24" and it can be purchased online from Hofcraft.
The lesson provides 8 painting videos with a total of 4 hours. Everything is explained and demonstrated as you paint along and see this cute piece come to life. A lined pattern, supply list, written prep instructions, class notes and photos are all provided. Photos of the underpainting are included as well as close up color photos of the finished work.
