I have not painted the piece as yet. But it looks awesome.
Thank you for the reminder about the purchase of this kit....I had totally forgotten I had it. I purchased this kit, not to use it to create an artwork, but to use the instructions to learn how to create my own art work using resin, drafting film and coloured pencils. There is almost a dizzying array of products needed to complete this work as instructed. I believe also that I have perceptual problems that make it more difficult for me to understand the instructions. I have not actually tried to work this project at all, I've just read it over quickly for the purpose of this review. At the beginning there is a picture of a pile of small frames.....it is not clear to me. Do you actually need that many frames? Also, as an artist I work with my pencils using the numbers, not the colour names, so it would be very helpful for people who work like I do to have the colour number of each pencil listed along with the name. I confess to being totally lost with only colour names to guide me. I have learned that I am going to need a lot of time and patience to work through this process. My hat is off to Karen Hull for the incredible work she does. ( I have not yet watched the video. ) If I decided to try this, I would email or message Karen with questions if I need to. Again, I bought this kit with a view to learning the process, not with producing the artwork.
