You will start by getting to know Paola Alonso, how were her beginnings both in the manual disciplines and in the world of entrepreneurship.

You will know not only their influences, but also their references: all those artists that should start to sound, reference pages and accounts that will inspire you to create your own project.

Paola will guide you in the creation process to know how to start and how to find the best materials depending on the project in question. In addition to all types of sequins and shiny materials, you will begin to familiarize yourself with the tools and techniques of gluing that you will need to get down to work with your decorative object and with its subsequent promotional shooting.

Taking into account real proportions, texture and shape, you must draw the different parts or molds that will form your decorative piece. Paola will explain to you why you should paint the base before starting the paste phase and all its intricacies.

You can finish your project by creating some details and following a series of tips so that the finish of your piece is more real and professional. You only have to assemble all the parts and ... ready to serve!

And what is a piece of decoration if you do not show it? To finish, you will prepare an interesting composition to achieve a wow effect of your work. You can photograph and immortalize your decorative object to show it on your social networks and generate income with your pieces.

Bon appetit!
