About This Class

686ca89e

crystals are magical, beautiful, & mysterious, and also fascinating from a scientific perspective!

this class will teach you everything you need to know for creating accurate watercolor resist crystals–from basic crystal anatomy to step-by-step instructions on illustrating an example from each of the crystal structures to wet on wet resist techniques & beyond!

i'll take you along to see all sorts of real life crystals for inspiration at an NYC crystal shop and arm you with reference material (with scientifically accurate sources!) to create your own raw resist crystals.
