Free Tutorials Page. Experimenting with Paint & Shellac.

Free Tutorials Page on my arts website Outlook8studio. Experimenting with Paint & Shellac.

My favourite thing to make on  Free Tutorials  is my large studio easel. I created it when I built my studio in 2000. I wanted something big, so I could work on many paintings at once. It’s a bit slap happy, (I’m no carpenter) but, works perfectly for me.
