About This Class


In this class, you'll learn three ways to use metallic textures on your iPad in Procreate.  When you watch the class you’ll get all of my metallic textures and brushes as free downloads.  The set includes 50 glitter, shimmer, and gold foil textures, and 17 different brushstrokes, sprays, and splatters that we’ll use with the textures.


I’ll show you how to use the set to create metallic brushstrokes, splatters, and speckles to add eye catching elements to your artwork that make it pop off the page.

In the class we'll:

  • play around with all of the brushes and textures, so you can get a feel for all the options you have when it comes to adding metallics to your work
  • create a shape that we’ll use as a cutout to reveal glitter, gold foil, or gold paint underneath the paper
  • learn some easy ways to adjust the color and shine of your metallics, so you can make adjustments to your work to fit your personal style
  • create an abstract painting using brushstrokes, splatters, scrapes, and sprays to contrast with bright colored acrylic paint
  • combine watercolor and metallics
  • create detailed tiles that incorporate metallic paint as an accent using the tile guide I created

I'll show you how I make all of these projects from start to finish:


What I love about this process is that you can easily add a bit of metallic texture to a composition to make it really stand out online.  You can also combine this process with your lettering to present your ideas in an interesting and surprising way!

All you need to take this class is your iPad and a stylus.  I’ll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus, or even your finger. 

You can find the class downloads here. (the password is shown in the first lesson)
