Spring Into Gamsol

My favorite way to color images is with colored pencils and gamsol.  Gamsol is colorless odorless mineral spirits.  It is basically a solvent that “melts” the wax from the colored pencils so that it can be blended and shaded on the image.

On Wednesday, March 23, 2011 I will be teaching this technique at Ramona’s store.  There is still time to sign up for the class!

Participants will learn the basic technique as well as blending techniques.  Then there will be time to experiment with various spring images.  No need to bring anything special as I will provide all supplies for trying out this fabulous coloring method. 

Bring extra white cardstock so that you can stamp extra images to take home!  I frequently do this and have a supply of images that I can color while watching television or DVDs.  This is a great way to have a supply of images all set to go for creating cards or scrapbook embellishments!
