First things first, I get absolutely NO
credit for this. I directly followed the Tutorial by Weighanchor
which can be found here:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=301135.0
Thank you Weighanchor, this project made me so happy. Your portraits are inspiring and beautiful. I will keep working at it!
I first thought I would make these for my dad for his 60th as these are all his grandkids but I will be on the other side of the world for Christmas so I am going to save them and make a set for the parents of the kids as well as for all the grandparents, and of course keep this practice set for myself.
All I would add is to make darn sure you dont spread the masking fluid too thin as there are spots of colour on some of them where there were not supposed to be. Also, I essentially made a light table by putting a light on the floor and proping one of my storm windows on top of chairs over the light.
My favorite one:
All of them together still on the boards. I didnt do a close up of the baby. He was really hard and didnt turn out quite so well. Ill do better next time!
Thank you for looking and remember to give all props to Weighanchor
