May Lesson: Adding life to Neutral palettes
Have you ever noticed a heavy feel to your floral coloring projects?
Flowers should be lightweight and delicate, not bowling balls on stems! Learn Amy's process for keeping flowers dainty and featherweight.
The secret isn't just about the color combinations you choose, it's also in the way that you interpret the stamp.

To View the Livestream:
On the day of the broadcast, about 5 minutes before broadcast time, go to Patreon.com/VanillaArtsCo and log in to your account.
Look in the most recent posts for one called "Hyacinth Bulb Livestream". It contains a link to watch via a new window at Crowdcast.
The live-chat discussion board at Crowdcast is only active during the original broadcast and it may not be available on mobile or tablet formats.
I recommend watching the livestream first rather than trying to color along with the live version because you can't pause the live version. Sit back and enjoy the broadcast first. Color later.
To view the recording:
Go to Patreon.com/VanillaArtsCo and log in to your account.
On the left sidebar you will see "Featured Tags". Click "Livestream" to pull up lesson posts. Find parts 1 and 2 of your target lesson and watch using either the Crowdcast link or the YouTube link (for closed captioning).
Watch at your convenience, as many times as you'd like.
Remember, the discussion board is no longer active for recordings. Amy does not receive message notifications, so your message is unlikely to be read. Want to comment or ask a question? Start a post on the Patreon "Community" discussion board here.
Digi Stamp Printing Instructions:
The stamp not included in the class pack below. Must be purchased from using the 20% discount listed above.
Instructions for opening and sizing your stamp are linked below.
PAPER: This project uses Cryogen Curious Metallic White due to the water-splash process.
DO NOT use X-Press It unless you plan to skip the water-splashes. XPI disintegrates when wet.
SIZE: Stamp should be sized so that the entire image measures just under 6.5" from the bottom of the glass to the top edge of the flowers.
If printing smaller, make note of the flower petals. Don't make them too small to color with a Copic nib.
If printing larger, watch the size of the leaves. Too large = hard to blend smoothly.
I print at about 30% gray so that the stamp lines disappear as I color. Gray levels vary by printer (and paper brand); please test on scrap paper first!
NOTE: I print the video demonstration copy darker than the version you see in the photos. I'm always balancing- dark enough to see on camera versus light enough to disappear under the markers.
All printables open in a new window tab. If you have a blocker set, this may hamper your ability to open these printables.
Note: Patreon fee does not include Power Poppy digital stamp. The digital stamp can purchased directly from PowerPoppy.com here. Use the code "VAN20HYACINTH" at checkout to receive 20% off the purchase price.
Hyacinth Bulb in Glass will be demonstrated on Cryogen Curious Metallic White 89lb Coverstock
