About This Class

The trend for galaxy art has been gathering pace for a few years, with constellations, star clusters, and other wonders of space on all sorts products from notebooks to bags. In this class we will create greetings cards featuring painterly unique galaxy art, a wonderful gift that can be sent to friends or family.

Creating art on a small format means it can be achieved quickly without too much overwhelm. My first video introduces all materials used in the class, including paper paint and pens. In this Skillshare class we will explore three different techniques to create our galaxy art:

- galaxy using masking fluid to create star clusters

- star sign constellation using white gel pen and Posca pens

- night landscape using wax resist and black pen.

All the video classes are easy to follow and suitable for beginners and more intermediate, with lots of helpful tips to create your galaxy card. There is a fun warm up exercise that will help with the process which I urge everyone to try. Have fun with this class and explore these techniques further if you wish.
