Have fun practicing getting your consistency right, not too runny and not too hard

I have included in this lecture a template to practice your acrylic balls, print it out and place inside a plastic sleeve and practice as often as you like, you want to keep your acrylic inside the lines so this is a good way to practice your consistency. I will upload a video of this shortly
