Traditional Russian Folk Art

Here is a student who came to learn the Russian Folk art technique (Zhostovo). This technique requires you do a lot of layering and usage of blending gel to get the right effect. Quite a complicated process and thus requires a lot of patient to do it.

I also did a sample on of the zhostovo on a piece of placemat.

Previously this student had done the Norwegian Folk Art design (Rosmaling) which she had completed the project on her own. It turns out very elegant.
