Tuesday Tips at Ten: How to Paint a Perfect Yin & Yang!

It’s Tuesday! Today I am frantically prepping to run my Glitter Glamper booth at the Kickoff to Summer event at the MN State Fairgrounds, so I decided to resurrect an old video! Check out this video for my tips to create a perfect Yin and Yang…they are much harder than they look and people often ask me how I paint them. Watch to see what I do!

Last week my website host was malfunctioning and I was not able to share my tip here on my blog, so below is last week’s tip. Unfortunately WordPress seems to let me down often, so if you check my blog again and find nothing on Tuesday at 10, be sure to check out my Facebook page as I’ve had the best luck so far getting my scheduled posts to show there! Thanks so much for watching!

Check out today’s video for a mini lighting & shadows lesson and a fun design to use this Thursday!
