"Excellent! I loved the way Cynthia described the painting process. Easy to understand and easy to use!"
–– Maureen Moulton
"Such a great instructor. For beginners like me who has never done any painting your clear and in depth instructions and explanations made it so easy to understand I took the plunge and was confident enough to try on a cake soon after I finished your tutorial. Thank you so much, Cynthia. This is actually my second purchase from your course and looking forward to learning more from you."
