Class Overview

In this class, I share the process I went through to create my lava-inspired wall art.

I include my first attempt at creating the lava river and what I do to fix it and make it look more realistic.

For this project, I will show you:

  • how to make the molten rock
  • how to colour and add highlights to the rock
  • how to create the lava river
  • and how to colour it
  • plus, how fixed the issues and came up with my plan B

I will also share my thought processes and how I work through any problems.

By the end of the class, you should understand how to create a molten rock look, how to paint it to look like lava and how to fix any problems.
