All Smilez video art lessons - Doodles and Dye

In this course, I will take you step by step through how to draw amazing zen doodles, and beautiful gem-art.

Using dye or water colour pencil, you will love to see the results as they blend together using wet-on-wet techniques.  You will also learn how to create effective zen doodles using pen and black permanent marker.

You will be able to create beautiful art to frame, and even gorgeous gift cards to impress all your friends.  Check out down below, the kind feedback I have received from some students in Wellington, NZ.  So grateful.

Materials you will need:

You can get bottles of non-toxic dyes from Office Max, or Creative Classrooms, maybe even an emporium store in NZ, and should be easy enough to find in other places. If you haven't got any dye then you can use water colours or even water colour pencils work well, which I will show you in one of the videos.

Wet strength paper is necessary, some old jars to put your dye in, some brushes, permanent marker, black ball point pen (permanent).

  • "Thank you so much for this great course Kim! My girls have been making these every day after school, and we have already framed some and plan to give them to Nana for her birthday. The girls and I have also enjoyed drawing these gems on cards that will use as invites for an upcoming birthday party for Chelsea. I even found myself doodling these at work!!! and impressed my workmates too. Don't be surprised if you get a few more sign ups. You're doing a really cool thing. Thanks again."
