Step by Step Video Tutorial: Lego Brick Man Design

I know I’ve already posted a step by step video this morning, but I have one more for you! These were my first attempts at filming myself painting step by step, so of course I had to be EVEN and paint each one of my boys once! 😉

In this video you’ll see how I paint my super popular and simple Lego man design! I mean, toy brick man design!!! 😉  This time I’m painting on my 6 year old Toby…he’s a funny guy with a lot to say, who thinks I don’t see what he’s doing in the camera when I turn away.  Well, at least he’s entertaining! The mirror moment in this one is totally lackluster as he has already had this design painted on him before! 😉

I hope you enjoy this video, and I plan on improving the quality of these as I do more and learn as I go! Don’t forget to check out my huge pages full of FREE learning resources. Thanks for hangin’ in there with me, and happy painting!

Step by Step: 4th of July Bottle Rocket

Hey everyone! I’ve just uploaded a new step by step video of the design shown above!  This one comes out just in time for your 4th of July gigs. Go easy on me, folks…this is my first attempt to film a step by step so you may see my head in the way once or twice, ha ha!

I’ve been painting a lot lately but not blogging every time, so here are a few more of my recent paintings if you haven’t already been following me on Facebook…

Super quick and fun fireworks!!

What else is going on at

New Brushes
We’re in the process of swapping out some brushes as Loew-Cornell has decided to discontinue my FAVORITE brushes with acrylic handles and golden taklon bristles. Booohoo!!  They are still making the same brushes with the same bristles, just taking away the acrylic handles and only selling the wood.  So, if you visit our brush section you may notice some of the 7000C series brushes being replaced with 7000 series as they run out.
