Watercolor Pineapple turned Tote bag: Paint, Sip and Print with Ladyfolk Studio!

Events, Watercolor and WineKimberly HeimbachComment

I cannot tell you how excited I am for my next workshop: Paint, Sip and Print, Watercolor Pineapple turned Tote bag!

Have you heard of a direct to garment printer? Commonly referred to as a DTG? It's tote-tally awesome!

Well let me explain what this has to do with the next workshop...

You see, we will be using this bad ass DTG at the Soul Project to print your original watercolor pineapple painting directing onto a canvas tote. How amazing does that sound?! You will get your very own tote bag, with your art on it to take home. Stash your new travel watercolor set and towel in it so you can hit the beach in Laguna to show it off, because everyone loves pineapples!

I will begin the by teaching you all the basics of watercolor painting, including wash techniques, the process for painting, making a composition, dry brushing, and color mixing. After that, I will walk you through a step by step process for making the perfect pineapple painting. You will actually get two chances at this, so you can pick which one you want to print on your bag!

Once you are happy with your painting and it is good and dry, I will be scanning them and printing them on the bags while you get to enjoy yourself sipping wine, chatting with new friends and taking a look in the shop. You can see photos from a past watercolor workshop at The Soul Project here.

The Soul Project is offering a special discount of 15% off this evening for workshop attendees. You are sure to find a new dress for yourself or a gift for someone else. They literally have something for everyone, even mermaids! Not to mention the perfect beach attire clothing for kids, men, and women.
