FAQ

Q: What happens if I need help?

A: I have a private Facebook page for my students that you can join.  Once, there, you can ask me questions or ask other students.  I also respond to emails that you may send or comments you may leave in the course itself. 

Q: Can this be painted using oils?

A: All my courses are designed for Acrylic paints.  If you wanted to use oils, you would have to convert the colors and mix them yourself.  Also, some of the techniques may not work as I describe if using oils.

Q: What happens if I decide I don’t like it?

A: If, in the unlikely event, you decide this course is not for you, I provide a complete 30-day Money Back Guarantee.  All you have to do is ask.

Q: What surfaces can this be painted on?

A: This project can be painted on just about any surface with the materials I have identified.  However these paints will not work on glass so glass surfaces are out.

Q: Can this be painted on a round or oval surface?

A: Absolutely.  Although I have designed and painted this on a rectangular surface, it can be easily adapted to a round or oval surface.  

Q: Does this course have Live Classes that I must attend?

A: No, you can take this course on your own schedule.  You can access it anytime, any day.  It’s always there for you.

Q: Is this project suitable for new painters who are just beginning?

A: I hate to say, “No” but this would be quite a challenge for a new painter.  It might even be a source of frustration.  I would not recommend it.  But my new course to train new beginner painters will be launched later this year.  So stay in touch.
