The Basics of Traditional Tattoo Flash Watercoloring Seminar by Myke Chambers October 26 @ 7pm

Cost is $80- Call Off the Map Tattoo to sign up! 413-527-6574

“I've been asked in the past to do seminars on tattooing but i've always turned down the offers. I mean, what would I teach it on?  How to pull a straight line and pack solid color? And then call it “things you should know already but don't”? Nope. 

The questions I get asked the most are about painting with watercolor so I thought this would be a good seminar as you don't see it offered often. Watercoloring isn't as easy as it might look...well, I take that back, if you know a few simple tricks it's actually pretty easy. After you get the basics down it's only a matter of practice and patience. With this seminar i'm offering you the basics that will set you on your path...nothing too technical...keep it simple stupid”-Myke Chambers 

Topics Covered:



-Paint (watercolor verses liquid acrylic)

-Spit shading



This is a hands on seminar, brushes, paint, and paper will be provided. (supplies permitting)
