What people said...

Great class...! I kind of forgot how much I like Gourdgeous, and I have never done Courant before. Not sure I got it right, but I will attempt it again. LOVE how the ribbons work on black tiles! Thanks, Eni Oken!

Eni took the fear out of shading. I enjoyed the different techniques which really helped refine my work. Thank you!

Hi Eni! Thanks so much for this wonderful class. What you have figured out (how to deftly apply shading techniques on black paper) is so amazing. The metallic effect you've created works like magic! You are so gifted, and it's a joy to learn from you. I'm still working on the first tile, but am getting the feel for what you mean by "carving," using the different "tools." It really does feel like sculpting! I like how you can always go back and add more of the dark or light, whichever you need to make the gradation finer. Very much worth the time investment!
