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?

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!

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!

Woops! I just figured it out—it’s in the old brush set 🙂
