  6. I am so excited to hear you are filming for Craftsy. I have thought you would be an excellent instructor on that platform. Can you share the class subject? (Or is that super secret info. known only to high ranking crafting executives?🤐)😉
    I would selfishly love to have you teach in Southern California if you get the opportunity.

    Cheers,

    • I have not taught there. Are they the same as the Yarka St. Petersburg? If so they are great!

      • The sonnet watercolors are in the Nevskaya palitra set, so no I do not think the Yarka is the same. I am buying them and hoping somebody will make a tutorial because nobody does. though everyone seems to do the White Nights watercolor paints which are in the same brand.
        I hope you can help,
        Matthew

  13. I’ve been watching your stamp school classes with awe. So many New ideas. On the first one you refer to a tool as a color duster, or stippling brush. Can you direct me as to where to find them? And will men’s shaving brushes have the same texture to get the sme result?

  14. Hi Lindsay, I think I finally found a way to send you an email where you might see it! I have so many questions to ask you about art, but I just want to start with how much does it costs for a class and if you have online classes before 2016 is up?
