    I love having these all in one place. For some reason, I have problems with #2- “Sculpture Relief in Bezel Frames”. I’m obsessed with the technique (ok, ok – so I even ordered some Ammonite fossils just so I could “be like Becky”), but I have trouble with it. Maybe it’s just that you are super blessed in making everything look easy? I don’t know…but I *will* conquer this technique in 2017. I will. I promise. One way or another. You may want to keep lots of extra resin in stock. 😉

    Will there be an art retreat this year? I’m very sad I missed the fall 2017 retreat. Consider having another.

      I don’t have plans for a class this fall. I am going to be doing a series of tutorials online for the month of July. We are calling this our “Nunn Design Summer School”. I hope you will join us for that.
