Then we had a go at making samples so we knew how it all worked. next was painting the Gutta onto the back of the velvet. The Gutta makes the white lines and "holds" the paint in an area. It looked so easy when demonstrated but not making any blobs took concentration!

Then we made a start on the painting.
The finished pieces are being processed by Parker and Arrol and will be returned to me. I will add more pictures at that point so watch this space for the big reveal
