What you'll need:- Yarn- Paint (I used GOLDEN Artist Colours in Quinacridrone Magenta from Michaels)- Water dish- Drying dish- ScissorsStep 1: Making the tassels.This step is the longest part of the whole process. This, and drying time. I used a makeshift piece of cardboard and wrapped the yarn around it several times until I thought the tassel would be thick enough (as seen in the video). This helps to make all your tassels the same length. Cut, and tie a small piece to notch the head of the tassel in place, then trim the base so it's all nice and...


Laying it on Thick

Chantal Emory

Hello lovelies!I was recently asked about how I create layers on my paintings, so check out this quick little video on how I create and develop my tulips.
