Now for last night's Ustream winner...congratulations to Lorinda M! Please email your mailing address to naoko@fabercastell.com.  Thanks!


Really enjoyed Jen's Mixed Media Pumpkin U-Stream tonight.  I've never tried my gelatos on fabric before, but I'll definitely be making some of these pumpkins.  The Steampunk colors that she used are great. I hope this is the right place to leave the comment.

Congrats Lorinda!! Enjoy your new Faber-Castell goodies!!! :)


I love the canvas, Nicoletta!

Congratulations Lorinda! Have fun with your new goodies!


Beautiful canvas, Nicoletta! I enjoyed your video.


As usual Nicoletta, you have done exceptional work of art. First I thought...without reading the title..."Hell ..no is it a mistake...Nicoletta used a reversed canvas" and then smiled when I saw the title. Love and appreciate the techniques. I must now buy Faber Castell materials used in the video.


I love the idea of using the backside of the canvas... AWESOME!!!


FANTASTIC! I absolutely love how you used the back of the canvas!
