Digital stamp is a separate purchase from PowerPoppy.com (log in at Patreon to receive your 20% off discount code).

I love vibrant color but sometimes, a neutral color palette fits better with the image, the theme, or even the patterned papers you intend to combine with your project.

Neutral palettes are sedate, but they don't have to be boring!

Join Amy for a fun and challenging lesson in dealing with calm and natural colors like khaki, grays, and even neutralized violets

Learn to spice up your neutrals with restraint.

Vanilla Livestream is perfect for:

  • Intermediate colorers who already have basic Copic blending skills
  • Intermediate colorers who are tired of "monkey see, monkey do" demonstrations
  • Experienced colorers looking to challenge their current skills
  • Shy artists who want more than craft-level classes based on trendy techniques

I recommend that if you're a beginner, start with Marker Painting Foundations to develop your basic marker technique BEFORE joining Vanilla Livestream classes. These are definitely intermediate level challenges!
