Widely acknowledged as one of the top nail artists in the world today, Elena Maltseva of Russia, is offering a free class for all nail techs in mixed media art practices.

Made famous for her mixed media and fantasy structures, Elena Maltseva is much sought after to judge global nail competitions and as such is often seen on the Nailympia judging panel.

This year in support of Nailympia Online, Elena will be judging on the panel next week when the event closes, as expected. However, Elena has also offered to present a 3-hour live stream onto the Nailympia official Facebook page from 4pm (GMT UK time) on Monday 1st March .

The class will be formed around creating perspective, depth and angles in mixed media art pieces. Elena will share her knowledge on spreading a work piece into plans: the background, the middle distance and the foreground. She will share her tricks on depicting depth & volume without bringing height and massiveness to the work and will show the stages of building a piece of work with non-standard angles.

“I will be recreating a flying man in the sky (from the image shown here), not just in a plane blue sky background, but as if part of a mixed media work for competition,” relays Elena.

If you love nail art, are ready to learn some advanced techniques, then join the LIVE on Monday and see for yourself the magic that is Elena Maltseva.
