Painted Desert

Episode Notes

Project Info:

Level: Beginner

Estimated time: 1-2 Hours

Project by Kate Richbourg & Emily Miller

There are colors behind the colors when you see a beautiful sunset. Whether it’s summer or after a rainstorm, look beyond the bright pinks and oranges and you’ll spot the deeper hues and saturated colors of Nature. We hope the combination of carnelian, natural stone, and amethyst in this palette will resonate with hikers and naturalists.
Be sure to watch Kate and Emily string away on Facebook LIVE October 11, 2017, or watch the rebroadcast above. The ladies will demonstrate step-by-step both the design and construction from start to finish.
