JOIN US FOR PART 3! Catch up on Part 1 and 2 first!

* Date: Tuesday June 1, 4-5PM EST

Join Pierre Finkelstein for the third of his 4 part series featuring 1-hour online demonstration of faux marble veining fundamentals. This sketch-based instruction will be useful for all levels of painters. Pierre will break down veining in its simplest form by focusing on copying the structure of basic veined marble. Learn how to paint realistic veins by understanding the structure and formation of the Fragments and Fissures of real marble.

Pierre will take a closer look at Breccia veining (fragmenting) using the principals taught in lessons 1 & 2. Pierre will show you some quick tricks and drills to develop faster Breccia marbling with a strong composition of fragments. Pierre will address how to vein a column, baseboard, handle corner returns, and general marble layouts. Pierre will be working with water activated brush paper, charcoal drawings, and cardboard paintings.

Some one asked this question in a paint group. Any idea what these brushes are used for and where they can be purchased? I didn't see anything on the Faux Brushes site.
Do you ship to India?
Great artistique work performance and transmition of painting knowledges.
I am a Chinese student of Pierre's mentor!
How do these acrylics perform if I were to make an exterior door that's painted look like wood ?
