The kit had plenty of material for me to create my first heavily textured painting, plus a little bit of the heavy texture leftover for experimenting and plenty of the medium viscosity left for when I purchase some more of the heavy texture (which I just did!). The texture is silky and thick and like nothing I've used before, and I had a lot of fun creating with it. Once dried, the paint is still glossy and I can't help but run my fingers over it whenever I walk by it.
I found this piece harder than the poppy picture. The petals of the sunflowers were pretty tough, and I found that I needed more yellow than provided. Luckily I had some left over from previous kits. Overall, kit makes a beautiful piece of art, but would be more beneficial with Justin talking during the video. Looking forward to buying more kits! ❤️
I’ve taken art lessons over the years and felt somewhat discouraged with the process. When I saw Justin Gaffrey’s YouTube‘s, I was immediately intrigued and thought: this is definitely something I would like to try as it’s more my style of painting. I decided to order the starter kit so I could do a design of my own rather than copy something that Justin had done. My initial thought was to do a variation on his sunflowers, but the minute I put the first palette stroke on the board, I had to change course as the stroke was not quite right. Anyway I created something of my own design…hibiscus.
The products are wonderful, beautiful pigmentation, very easy to work with.
Looking forward to my next creation, you have to give this a try!!!
Saw this on You Tube looked like fun. It takes a minute to get use to using the knife correctly but loved working with the paint. Most fun I’ve had in a while.
I purchased the Starter Set for my daughter’s Christmas gift. It is filled with everything and more. It was easy ordering process, arrived well packaged and in good shape. She loves it and I can’t wait for her to paint as well as future orders.
