  1. Followed you cake tutorial today before I invested in the gouache brushes, so improvised with others in my collection. Then applied the animation from your video and some Skillshare classes. I love to animate; I am hooked. And really enjoy your tutorials and brushes. Thanks for such a quality job.
    Is there a place where I can upload it?

    1. Hi Diane! Glad you are having fun with the brushes and tutorials! If you post your work to Instagram, use the hashtag #bardotbrush so I’ll be sure to see it! I also have a Facebook Group called “Procreate Community: Learn // Draw // Share” were folks share their work. Can’t wait to see it!

  2. Hello! I purchased your entire brush collection, but do not see the Gouache thick brush you used on the cake at the start—is it the same as the ‘thick sticky’ brush? Thanks!
