I can now take this class off my must do list! I have to say, I stretched the paper first and it's remarkably unbuckled! Guess I should have taken this class sooner - would have saved me a lot of grief!
Cheers,
Sharon

Sounds to me that you have a whole new business opening up.

Good luck -- sell those paintings!!  (But it sounds like they are selling themselves)

Mea - part of me wants to see if there's an opportunity to make some money from painting...but I still have so much more to learn! Gotta keep taking those PB lessons!
Cheers,
Sharon

Sharon,

Sounds like you are in the enviable position of doing both - selling as you are learning.

Im wondering if I could use the reinforced gummed tape for stretching the paper. Has anyone used this and did it work?  Thanks

Have not used it.  That being said I see no reason not to use it!  O0
Looks more expensive, unless that is what I had on hand I would just buy the regular stuff.

My submission for this lesson.  I did not have the proper supplies to stretch but used heavy duty masking tape.  It made a huge difference so can't wait to get the proper supplies!!

Sherri,

What a nice painting!  I have no idea what the stretching is all about, so will have to take the class.

Really good work, girl!

Well done Sherri  O0   Stretching the paper makes all the difference with the lighter weight papers.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
