I still haven’t got the hang of them, but I’m getting closer.

Sutton Slice Success!

Last Wednesday I was lucky enough to attend one of Lisa Pavelka‘s brilliant workshops, which was a master-class on using the “Sutton Slice” technique, which she developed (accidentally!!) with fellow artist Pete Sutton.

I had attempted the Sutton Slice technique before, but was only partially successful.

But as of Wednesday, I am now able to create the Sutton-iest of slices. Yay!

I love Lisa’s classes, but if you can’t get to one yourself don’t panic —  she has put an instructional video onto YouTube.
