We are into the final home stretch in preparation for my Izannah Walker Reproduction Doll Class by Mail. It looks like we are on schedule to ship right at the end of the month, although we are experiencing a few weather related delays and not all of the fabric has come in for the material kits and the samples that go along with the class, so we may have a bit of a problem there. Keep your fingers crossed!
Today among other things we stretched canvas and primed it with gesso in preparation for painting swatches that are included in the class painting instructions. This is the type of thing that I would do out in the barns in good weather, but because it’s winter and we had a fair amount of snow fall today, I have the canvas set up on boards in my cellar, right up next to the furnace to help speed the drying time.
