Filigree Flourishing with Finetec:
Below is Victoria's yummy description of her presentation during the first Atlanta Penabler meeting July 6th. If reading this doesn't send calligraphic shivers (the good kind) up and down your spine, come to the meeting to see what all the fuss is about!
"Victoria Lansford will demonstrate her unique style of pointed pen flourishing with Finetec metallic gouaches and share with you her techniques for building dramatic shapes, letter forms, and large cartouches on dark colored papers. She'll also show how she mixes and combines colors to make compositions pop as well as some handy tricks for making Finetecs and other paletted paints easier to work with and take on the go."
