I started a parchment class about a month ago, and absolutely fell in love with it. It is soooooooooo relaxing even the girlies are having ago....
I finished my first piece yesterday so I thought I would post on here and see what my cyber buddies thought....
If anyone wants the pattern email me and I will send it to you.....she is gorgeous...
For those of you that want to know...
1st I traced the pattern using a mapping tool and white ink
2nd I traced the ladies face and neck using a mapping tool and sepia ink
3rd I traced her necklace and ear ring using mapping tool and gold ink
4th I coloured her hair with blending pencils (WH Smith do a box of 36 for £3.99 and they are great)
5th I then used Dorso crayon (thingys) to shade the pink of her face, the background a shade of peach and her hat and shoulders purple (I have been told that if you can't afford the proper pergamarno Dorso oil ( about £5) for blending them Linseed oil works the same....but muppet here bought the wrong one so still had to buy the proper stuff (SHHHHHHHHHH don't tell Nige lol)
6th I used the technique called "dip dab" around the brim of her hat (all the little dots)
7th I then painted inside her ear ring and the ovals on her necklace with pearl paint
8th I then did all the embossing which I loved doing along with the shading on the flowers and leaves
9th I then painted her eyes and lips, turning her over to lightly emboss her lips giving her a pout
10th I then shaded in the creases of her hat and dress using blending pencils
11th I then used a 2-split tool around the edge (which was the part I was dreading, to do all that work then rip it)
Then its done....lol
sorry about the waffling but I thought I would explain how I did my pretty lady and I am so addicted to parchment...
