Fast & Loose Wet On Wet Decorative Rose Watercolor Speedpaint

The process part of this video has been sped up 450%.

I am using a DIY watercolor palette I made from a plastic box and waterproofed foam core, Winsor & Newton cotman tube paints, various brushes as listed on screen, and Canson XL watercolor paper taped to a dollar store cutting board.

Just looking to have fun and splash around in some color. Hoping you enjoy the process!

CutCardStock Design Team Project 8 – Embossed Resist Lettering and Ink Blending for Your BFF

We are so pleased to be working with the CutCardStock team! Each month, using their products in order to make two themed projects, and hosting step-by-step DIY instructions on their blog.

On our blog, we will have full YouTube videos showing the process as well. So be sure to check both places to get the full story!

Our eighth project involves using a brush embossing pen to hand letter a sentiment for a best friend card. We use distress ink in a darker hue than the pop tones card stock to create a soft floating effect, then add a few enhancements and hand-cut glossy heart accents.

Temporary Tattoo Half Sheets and Custom Options Now Available

I am truly kicking myself for not taking good photos of these tattoos when I tried them on a real life bachelorette party. These mock-ups will have to do for now, and I’ve made them as accurate as possible with regards to scale. The “bride status” is the largest and spans my wrist at just over 2.5 inches. The custom option is great if you want something super special for everyone at the party!

Custom Hand Painted Lettering and/or Illustration for Home Decor and Beyond

If you live in the Detroit Metro area and are looking for something hand-painted to add to your walls, please don’t hesitate to ask for a quote! There is something altogether special about hand-painted work that goes straight onto a wall or the side of a building. Murals, signs, etc. It’s a craft that was almost lost to the digital age but has been held onto for dear life by those who value authentic touches.

In the featured example, Pigmentology was asked to brighten up an old-fashioned pantry door. I’d be happy to sit down with you to visualize whatever it is you are dreaming up for your home: whether it be rustic garden signage, a trendy bedroom mural, something bright and colorful for the kids’ play room .. you name it!

My hourly rates are based on the complexity of the job and I only charge gas money to those outside of a 30 mile radius from Ferndale, Michigan. For pricing specifics, don’t forget to fill out our quote estimate form.
