Immerse yourself in the step by step process of how to make a unique portrait of either yourself or a loved one, using a technique I’ve been using and developing for over a decade.
Apart from learning my creative process from start to finish, you’ll also receive my personal recipe, for the main material used and its application. Coupled with ways on repurposing ‘trash’ for decorative effect, will result in a totally unique and personal artwork ready to hang on your wall.
