Who knew how many people love turtles?
Join Susan to paint yet another Kathie George Batik watercolor design.
If you’ve been wanting to try this technique she would recommend this as a great starter class.
It is painted with watercolor and wax on rice paper.
She will provide all supplies, Micron pen, Kathie George original pattern packet, wax and paint.
You will be so thrilled with your finished result.
This should not take all day but she is planning it anyways due to all the time needed to dry the paper.
It is a jam-packed day so bring a sandwich and snacks, we won’t be taking a true lunch break. She promises it is worth all the work.
Beginner’s welcome! If you’ve wanted to learn this technique this is a great starting painting.
