Bluebirds & Vintage Roses Class

Creating Folk Art with Comma Strokes from the Folk It kits.

Sometimes new painters need a teachers outlook on 

how to create comma strokes.

Kat traveled up to Bude today to take a class 

in the Little Acorn studio.

Her practice strokes with the Bluebirds and Vintage Rose Kits were extremely good for a beginner.
With a little guidance and practical help with what a round brush can and cannot create she is now well and truly on the right road to creating beautiful designs with a little more practice.


Having the confidence to play with colour whilst practicing your strokes has a two way learning curve. Playing freely creates so many variations and look completely different. 

 We started with Grey, White, Silver and Champagne Gold.
Colours inspired by the Folk It Christmas Designs.
The same design, two different outcomes.


then choose which 
you like the best.






Tomato Red and White


 White, Grey and Silver.

And finally a face for a name, she has picked her two favourite projects.

Thank you Kat for traveling all this way for a lesson, now it is time to get a bit more practice done and I look forward to seeing pics on the Folk It Facebook page of all the furniture you will be creating and selling in your shop "Here & Far in Tavistock, Devon.
Until next time.
Happy Painting
