Get yours HERE!

It’s an exciting day here at Paintertainment!! My latest book, “Jewelry for Face & Body Artists,” is now in stock and ready to ship!!

Whether you’ve arrived at a princess party and left your gemstones on your kitchen counter, need to come up with something extra special and sophisticated for the party hostess on the spot, or just want to wear a new piece of gorgeous, custom jewelry without the price tag, having realistic jewelry in your painting repertoire is a must!
What’s In the Book?
In this new book I go in-depth on the subject of jewelry with over 80 pages of more than 240 full color photos. Among its pages you will find pages that analyze the range of colors used to render 4 kinds of metals (silver, gold, bronze and copper).  In the section on chains, I’ll take you step by step through 7 types of chains: curb chain, rolo chain, rope chain, popcorn chain, snake chain, bead chain and figaro chain.
Next, we’ll tackle transparent stones.  You’ll start by learning how to paint a smooth stone, then learn how to add facets. I’ll walk you step by step through 12 different types of gem cuts: round, oval, drop, princess, trilliant, cushion, heart, marquise, square, baguette, emerald, and diamond. Once you master the shape of a stone and it’s facets, I’ll explain how to incorporate depth in your stones. But we don’t stop there.  Besides transparent gemstones, I’ll walk you step by step through how to paint various opaque stones, including pearls, mother of pearl, agate, tiger eye, turquoise, and wood.
I’ll then share some great tips and tricks to tackle the intricate diamonds and beads with speed, show you how to use gemstone shaped stencils, and show you how to make your own jewelry painting tool. To top it all off, I’ve included a super helpful troubleshooting section to help you identify and fix some of the most common mistakes artists make with jewelry.  This book is sure to be a valuable resource that will help you hone your realistic jewelry painting skills and push you to take your talent to the next level!
