The Holo Effect Tutorial was the very first one I wrote. I still love the Holo Effect itself (and use it often), but my tutorial writing skills have improved quite a lot since then. I guess it’s the perfectionist in me, but I just didn’t like having it for sale when I know that I can do better. It had typos. Some of the links didn’t work anymore. And it didn’t have my new interactive Table of Contents. So I fixed it. But I didn’t just fix the links. I rewrote the whole thing. I took out some stuff, changed to a new format, and added three new projects. So really…it’s about 2/3 completely new content.
Previously only included as a holiday special bonus, I integrated the once-a-year Christmas ornament project into the Holo Effect Tutorial permanently. I even wrote an all-new project using cookie cutters to make really striking ornaments and gift tags. And there’s now a fun Holo Earrings project that is so popular with my daughter that she asks for a new pair to match new outfits. (Luckily, they’re easy to make!) I included these new projects and expanded the tutorial from 36 to nearly 60 pages (and from 75 to 131 photos). It’s a fantastic tutorial that I can now say I’m very proud of! Click through the gallery below to get an idea of all the neat things I’ve done (and that you can do) with the Holo Effect Tutorial.
If you’ve not yet bought the Holo Effect Tutorial, head over and check it out. It’s a really fun technique. But perhaps the neatest part is that you can use the basic concept in all kinds of other work. Beth Petricoin used it to make a fish and a lighted Christmas tree. Carrie Harvey used it to make a textured box. And Rebecca Roberts added really great steampunk elements to hers. The Holo Technique is what I always fall back on when I want to make a quick gift for someone. It’s easy, it gives striking results, and it’s very unique. I really do think you’ll enjoy working with this technique.
Do you already own the Holo Tutorial and want to get copy of this updated version? No problem, just go here to learn how to get it. All of my tutorials include free updates when I make version changes and fixes. It’s my pleasure to share the update with anyone who has previously purchased the Holo Effect Tutorial.
