This is a lovely concise jewellery making tutorial where you will learn the methods used for creating your own wire wrapped pendant.
The lady who demonstrates the video uses a turquoise gem stone which is around 1.5″ in diameter and explains how she will wrap it and embody the precious stone using in an organic fashion some 22 gauge wire. Unravel the wire from it’s coil and mould and bend gently with your hands to make sure it’s straight then when you’re at about 20″ cut the wire with a pair of pliers. Next it’s time to thread the wire through the bottom hole in the gemstone and pull it all the way through leaving a couple of inches exposed.
Next is your chance to freestyle and weather it be a uniform or organic approach you must tightly wrap the stone to your preferred style leaving 8″ of wire which must be twisted with the smaller 2″ wire with a pair of round nose pliers to seal the pendant. Voila! You have your pendant, so what are you waiting for!?
I was inspired whilst watching this video. I think that it’s such an incredible skill in any painting whether it be acrylics, oils or watercolors, to be able to simplify a painting and then just walk away contented. John Hoar is probably one of the most exciting watercolorists in Britain today. His dynamic impressionistic style is based on simplifying the painting process. In this exciting video tutorial John paints on the stunning North Norfolk Coast in and around the picturesque harbour of Blakeney and in the next door village of Cley Next the Sea.
Using only two brushes and five colors, John shows how to strip a scene down to it’s basics and interpret it as a loose dynamic watercolor. Not to be missed.
In this video Artist Mark Crilley teaches through discussion and application the different styles in which ‘Manga’ cartoon eyes are drawn. Most people will think there is only one style but in actual fact there are lots. Using his pencils and artist’s pad he demonstrates four different styles in this short video and it really is a good example of a how to draw tutorial.
Another acrylic painting demo by artist Will Kemp with him painting a selected still life composition of ceramics and fruit.
Personally I absolutely love the style in which Kemp paints his objects. He is very fluid and deliberate at the same time and as a result his paintings are often more like a traditional rendering of the subject more than trying to capture the exact qualities of what’s in front of him. Using flat paint brushes and at some points his finger to blend with you can clearly see his acrylic creation coming together. Golden Heavy Body branded paints have been used here for professional pigmentation and color blending. I hope you enjoy the end result as much as I do.

Jake domonstrates in this educational video tutorial how to turn watercolor theory against the grain and paint from dark to light. His painting style is bold and dynamic and his teaching style during the video is accommodating and easy to follow. He does not believe in building up a series of glazes and would much rather attack the painting with dark shades making sure he gets them right first time, every time. A very unusual approach but extremely unique and interesting nonetheless.
In this instructional video you can become the envy of your friends by learning how to draw what is potentially one of the hardest subjects in art…the mouth!
