I've been getting several requests on my YouTube channel to post more process and DIY style videos. This week was the perfect time to give this a shot as I am hand painting envelopes to give away at the upcoming Miami Pen Show in July. If you are in the Miami area stop by the show and join me on July 16 at 2pm for a free Mail Art class. I'd love to see you there.
Here's my first step by step process video for painting envelopes. For more information on materials used, please scroll to end of this post. If you like this style of video, please be sure to subscribe to my channel. Thank you.
For Layers - White Gesso, inexpensive acrylic paints and brushes, water-based sealer (I'm basically using up materials I have around the house. Honestly, I can't recommend any particular brands of these products at the moment because I'm trying out many things and still learning)
Pens and Ink - I used a combination of black and white pens, but for black I recommend the Sakura Micron pens. For white, I recommend the Uni-Ball Signo Broad Gel pens. I love both of these products and use them for multiple projects.
