Painting course at Sofisticake


I was thrilled to attend a course at Sofisticake with Malene, who is an educated Royal Copenhagen painter. I hope there´ll be a part II, III and more, because it was extremely interesting and she´s a great teacher.




We practiced basic stroking-techniques - really difficult although it looked so simple when she demonstrated.





 Most important - the course gave me lots of inspiration to carry on at home. These are painted with Wiltons white icing colour.


 

Taking a break from stroking...



-And taking it a bit further - just to see if i could. This is an image of Mads Stage (hence the initials on the heart), painted on the cookie with a picture lying beside me. This attempt is good enough for me - Note to self; Never say you can´t.





I tried out roses too...
 
 
There´s room for improvement, but i did surprise myself with these ones and
i´m looking forward to refine my efforts. I´ll definately get on with practising!
First step will be shopping for better brushes and lots of coloured dusts.
Hope you like them :)

  1. I love them!!!! I wish someone would teach a class like that here. I have been searching for books and found some Tole Painting tutorials. May I ask how exactly you painted the rose? Thank you! Dana

  4. Dana: The word was tole painting, thanks! :) I´ll see if i can find some good, easy designs. For the roses, i started with painting 2 circles and then i painted the centres with a dark red and....painted here and there untill it looked like the image i had beside me, not knowing at all what i was doing :D

  5. Fantastiske "malerier". Jeg synes nu, at du var ret dygtig i forvejen. Jeg er dog vildt ærgelig over, at jeg ikke havde set det kursus, for det var da et jeg rigtig gerne ville have deltaget i. God søndag!
