Welcome to the “all that glitters” classroom!

This class is all about layers and lustre!  We will use lovely chunky layering techniques employing a variety of media, and then draw on, and embellish our piece with graphite and gold or copper leaf.

I am so happy to be bringing these gorgeous lessons to you!

This page contains all the classroom content and links to the videos for the four lessons (which are right at the bottom of this page!).


If we are not already friends on Facebook, please send me a friend request at Toni Burt

I have a private facebook group for all of my classes.   “a journey for the soul”  Here you can share your artwork with others taking my classes, and gain feedback and ask questions.

I will add or invite you to the group after you join the class.
(If you use a different email address for facebook please message me as sometimes it is difficult to join the group as it is a secret group.)

resources – vintage imagery

You can obtain vintage imagery from a lot of great sites on the web, these are two links for
websites I use a lot and find they are an excellent resource.
Their images are royalty free public domain images.  Just type in the search field what you
are looking for (eg. “sheet music” “script” “handwritten letters”  “butterflies”).

I use an inexpensive colour laser printer to print out all of my papers on regular copy paper.
Alternatively you can have them printed at your local copy store.
