Zhostovo, an old Russian style of folk painting, It appeared in the early 19th century and uses paint and firm strokes with a soft brush to create flowers. Normally done with oil paints, I am going to show you the basics of this Russian art application using acrylic paints.

The technique of applying 2 paints on one brush, is similar to one stroke but is softer and looser, I think easier to master. 

This course is ideal if you're a beginner to this technique as I show you everything you need to get started.

There are 9 lessons;

This technique is different to one stroke because it works with layers, each layer a different shade of colour to create a softer effect on your flowers. 

In this course you will learn;

  1. The basics, everything you need to know about the paints you need and bushes. 
  2. A simple daisy chain, just using white, so you can understand the principles. 
  3. A traditional zhostovo design, you might recognize. helping you create a different look to your flowers and understand petal positions. 
  4. Pink daisy design, i think a hit with the clients, as this is a delicate pretty design. 
  5. Sunflowers - you will work with the different petal shapes and positions. 
  6. A stunning rose. 
  7. Butterflies, this lesson is designed to help you perfect the blending technique.

I have spent years in the industry as a nail tech just like you, But, I found it was hard to get to workshops and find the time and pennies to invest in improving my skills.

As an educator for over 20 years, I wanted to help Professionals like you learn nail-art in the comfort of your own home, with no clock watching or rushing to get a nail done before the next demo. You will have everything on hand all the time, so there is no forgetting what you have learned on the way home. 

 You will have lifetime access to these courses.  All the lessons are pre-recorded, so if you fancy a bit of gel painting at 4am, then simply log in and I will keep you company. (virtually that is, I will actually be sleeping at 4 am)
