Introduction to Golden Gels and Acrylics for Inkjet Embellishment
Have you ever wanted to start using “wet” media, or “real paints” to your digitally painted canvases but was overwhelmed by all of the options available? Heather will simplify the organic process and show you exactly what you need to use for every sheen, and any style of image, even if they’re un-painted! You’ll also learn what to avoid, and pitfalls that can quickly turn your work of art into a cloudy mess. Join Heather The Painter during this extended webinar and watch how she breaks down color mixing, the difference between the various Golden acrylic types, and most importantly which gels to add to your repertoire. This webinar will include pre-recorded video demos, slide presentation, and a live Q&A. Please note this will not be a live video feed demonstration.

“Fellow Corel Painter Master Heather is wonderful artist and teacher. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Heather painting and teaching. I can attest from first hand experience to her great combination of both artistic and technical skills, plus energy and enthusiasm, all of which makes her a great speaker and teacher. Heather is passionate about art and people. She explores painting in the traditional as well as digital world. She communicates clearly and is patient and encouraging of her students. She knows Painter very deeply and is always open to learning and growing – qualities that enhance what she has to offer as a teacher.
