New Video on Folds/Pleats

Hi Everyone,

I have been receiving a number of questions about my folds and pleats that I didn’t really explain very well in my last videos on fold and pleats. So with the challenge of Pleats & Folds this week at Make it Colourful, I decided to make another video trying to explain it a little easier. Hopefully I have!!

Here’s the Video!

If you have trouble viewing it here you can see it on YouTube

Here is a close up of the final image. 🙂

This stamp is Tilda with Watering Can
She has a nice simple straight dress which is perfect for praticing folds in clothing. 🙂

Ignore her hair – not sure what I was doing there! 😛

Thanks for stopping by!!!! If you go off to play, pop back and link me up in a comment below!

    hi Zoe!
    I was so excited when I saw this video you have produced. It is awesome and you make it look so easy….hmmmmm!!
    I have just been coloring this Tilda and just couldn’t get the coloring right. I have brought myself some Promarkers and have absolutely no idea how to color with them. I can do the face and that’s about all. Today I will be practicing your folds and pleats so hopefully I have three colors that will go together. Who knows…if I get good enough I might join in on a challenge ha ha.
    You are such a sweetie to do this video.
    Hugs Maz

    Zoe: you’re a terrific teacher. I can follow the directions and learn the techniques but you can’t teach ‘touch’, I must have a leadfoot; I’m having a really hard time with the light touch.

    Thanks so much for the second lesson on colouring pleats.
    I think I might have got it now!!
    Could you possibly tell us what Copics you are using.
    Are they by any chance the first ones out? Don’t look like Sketch Markers.
    Hugs, Candy
