Fantasy Reborn painting is great because there are NO RULES. As long as you understand the basics of reborn painting using Genesis Heat Set Paints & Mediums (GHSP), you will be ready for Fairy painting.
I will be teaching Students techniques I use when creating reborn Pixies. Students will get to choose their Fantasy Color Palette. We will be painting our fairy with similar techniques used in ‘normal’ reborning: washes, mottlings, creases, even veining., but all a little different, with a Fantasy Twist!! Your Pixie baby will have skin tone depth and detail, and you will learn all the color shading. I will also be teaching using prismacolor pencils and creative ideas with many different bright color patterns. We will then have a finished design on your own personal pixie baby that you have created with your very own twist on the finishing touches. I will also be teaching shading multiple colors at once, mixing, blending, 3D color tones and highlighting.
As long as time allows, I am aiming for everyone to leave with a fully finished Fantasy pixie/fairy baby!
