Learn from the grid master himself, Gabriel Majalca, in this 3 part, 5 hour online series that's guaranteed to leave your kicks dazzling like the stars.
(2 hrs) In this introductory 2-hour session, I will provide you with a personalized "first-timer cheat sheet" based on the shoes you're choosing to Gemifly. We will discuss all methodologies of strassing and the importance of placement as invoked by our signature grid pattern. We will spend most of our time discussing these aspects and sections of the project before we begin on the shoe. We will start with the flat areas of the shoe first, working our way towards the more difficult areas.
(1.5 hr) Explanation of toe box and how to get in & out of pesky curves, bends, and tough angles in each section. This is a lot harder because the pattern must stay consistent across the material, no matter the dimensions.
(1.5 hr) Explanation of how to complete swoosh and all edging on each section . Utilizing the smallest gems, each artist will finish their project by adding the necessary size to edge the pattern, giving the shoe a nice clean finish. We will finish the lesson with the hardest part, the swoosh.
You'll meet 1-on-1 with Gabriel for 3 sessions either in-person or via Microsoft TEAMS.
