Sue, the template/picture for this class can be found on this section of the forum under "Lesson #74--Painting a Pebble Group."  The template is on page 2 of the download. A link to the template should also have been included in an email that is automatically generated and sent to you after you signed up for the class.  Hope this helps!   :1hug:

See you in class!!   
Cheers,
Jani

It's only 3 hours to class time.

I am going to be home today afterall, so is it too late to sign up?  Will I have time to mask the pebbles?

I'm all ready to go! 

I bought a new masking fluid - "Pebeo Gum" (pronounced pee-bee-oh) and it works swell!  It is a light gray, so you can see it, does NOT stain, doesn't smell funny and peels off like skin off a sunburn - one big piece!  I should have gotten this before. 

Happy!

Yes, Mea, you should be able to mask in all the pebbles and have them dry by the time class starts. It only takes about 10 minutes for the masking fluid to dry on its own, but you can even speed up that time by using a hair dryer. No problems, no worries!!  :D

Alice, after your post about your new masking fluid, I had a flashback of a terrible sunburn I received when I was 12 years old after falling asleep on the beach.  What a nasty sunburn I had!  My skin peeled off like an onion skin--or just like your new masking fluid!!  :2funny:
Cheers,
Jani

Thanks, Dennis.  Just printed the template and am testing my new masking fluid as we speak.

I will watch on Google Chrome today because I can set it to 100% so I can CHAT with you folks.

Thanks so much.  Good to go.

Lost the feed before the shadows were done...think I may need to make some of them a bit bigger. We'll see come the replay.


Sorry, can't seem to get rid of that darn watermark!  :tickedoff:

WOW!!!  I think they all look great Jenny!  :smitten:
Great start Val-sorry about your internet problems.  :-\
 O0 Nice job Harald!

I thought this paint along would be a good opportunity to use a color from Daniel Smith called Burnt Bronzite Genuine...I didn't know when I bought the paint it would have a sparkle to it.  I guess it has just enough sparkle for the colors not to pick up in the photo...ah well-live and learn.
