"Thanks! It was painted during worship at a ladie's conference, and wound up being the sermon. However, I knew nothing of the sermon, and each stroke was trusting the Lord. Nothing preordained.
Fun kind of painting."
Thanks for the comments on my "ex" WIP. (I have decided to keep it that way lol) the best thing for you to do is ask Gary himself. Email him at email@example.com and ask when he will be running another texture and layering course or if he has any DVD's left. I know he had planned on more courses and making more DVD's. (they sold out!)
You can still find many of his techniques in the group "Gary's popular videos".
Thanks for the comments on my foil pieces.
Gary ran it as an online course earlier this year. I think he's doing another in the new year, but will be different. He is selling DVD's of the techniques on his ETSY site. There's a link for that on his page. You can also find some of these on his youtube videos in the groups section of this site. http://garyreef.ning.com/group/garyspopularyoutubevideos
It was alot of fun and I recommend it totally.
(Didn´t u order some techniques recently from my etsy store?) So glad you came over here ;)

So once i have my image printed onto transparency film, I take my Ezscreen silk screen which has been coated in light sensitive emulsion (These sheets come pre-coated so they are ready to use). Place it onto a black board, then place the transparency image on top (this part needs to be done in a dark room with no direct sunlight). I take it outside and expose it for 1 minute and 40 seconds (but time varies depending on time of day and strength of sunlight). After i have exposed the image i place it into a tub of water for around 5 - 8 minutes. Then i rinse the screen out under fast running water until the unexposed area (the black) washes away. I then expose the screen to the sun for a further 20mins to completely harden the light sensitive emulsion.
And this is the completed screen ready for printing. I simply use an old credit card to spread the ink over the screen making sure i do one complete full stroke across the screen (holding the credit card at a 45 degree angle). I immediately wash the screen out under fast flowing water and pat dry. I use fabric screen printing ink which washes out in water (which makes the process easy).
I love this product, their website is http://ezscreenprint.com/ (for full instructions and details on how to purchase this awesome product).
