At first it may seem difficult to learn painting with palette knife but with little practice and step by step guidance, students will be amazed at what can be achieved. This is one of the most rewarding techniques that produces absolutely eye-catching effects. This Zoom class is the next level after our Basic and Intermediate palette knife painting online classes. We will be teaching you a 3D sculptured look of floral details using just your palette knives. This Class is open to any beginner and you will be surprised that you can actually do it! We have lots of tips to share and we have developed techniques for you to achieve a stunning masterpiece!
This class is typically an attended physical/hands-on class but due to the current situation, they have finally announced the launch of their Online Zoom class. Each class is divided in to 2 sessions of 4hrs each. Students will learn and create the cake project in real time, together with us. Video will not be recorded but you will have a lifetime support from us regarding the class project.
What is Zoom Class?
Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool/app that allows users to meet online. It is free to register an account. This means that we will be creating the project together through a video call, via the Zoom app. You’ll be emailed the Zoom link and a list of items needed for this class within 72 hours of booking this course to give you time to gather and prepare everything you will need. On the day of the class, you will just have to click the link sent to you to gain access in the “Virtual Meeting Room” and start the interactive class with us. Each class is only up to maximum of 10 students.
Class schedule and itinerary:
Upon booking, you will also be invited to an exclusive Facebook Group with all the rest of the students. You will have access to a full 1hr video on how to create our heat-stable buttercream recipe. We will be guiding you with this process and ensure that you will be able to perfect this step. You will need to prepare 2 batches of buttercream ready for the class. In the group, you will also have access to the basic cake construction video that will include full discussion on how to torte, fill, level and stack cakes, as well as crumb-coating and how to achieve perfectly smooth surface and sharp edges.
