Hi Everyone,

This is my first posting.   I just watched Dennis's video on the 6 color wheel and since color is definately my downfall I realy want to paint the charts.  Dennis did give us the template to copy.  I was wondering if I could paint on the copier paper or if I need to buy something specal.

I have been painting kraft acrylic for a few years and have just become obsessed with oils.  I have purchased the beginner lessons and I have just completed the tulip lesson and will upload soon.

It is very nice to read the posts in the forum.   I am soooo glad I found this site.

Paula

Hi Paula, :bigwelcome: to the PB family, glad you found us.

Copier paper is too thin, rather get poster paper or even better a small canvas. Then print the template onto the copier paper and use carbon paper to transfer the template to your canvas.

If you don't have carbon paper, use a soft pencil and scratch over the lines of the wheel, on the BACK of the paper. Then turn it over, place it on the canvas and trace the lines. The graphite you scratched onto the back should then transfer to the canvas
