About A.J. Bruner

Thanks for visiting #ColoringTherapy's Patreon page! We create projects that provide colorful creations and imagery in various forms of media like: tie-dye, hand-colored images, video and board games, 3D printing and lithophanes and even resin castings!

(Unless otherwise noted in a public post for a special purpose, Patron income collected is used to fund #ColoringTherapy art projects with remainders being donated to my son's ESE school.)

About me_______________________________________

My mother was an artist as well. She painted and sculpted and even drew up the blueprints for the home she helped design and live in, but eventually she only worked with one-of-a-kind jewelry (necklaces, earrings, anklets, chokers, bracelets and pins). I have been dabbling in various art forms and medium for a large majority of my life. I did learn a lot of my art knowledge from my mother and through my own personal studies though, ranging from hand-colored works into digital art. Now I'm passing along my knowledge to my son (and you in the process).

About my son___________________________________

ASD, or Autism Spectrum Disorder, is prevalent in our lives, with me as his primary care person. I work from home and volunteer a lot of my time and efforts, while teaching my son in the process combined with an Art Therapist.. He is beginning to learn the beauty of color and how art offers a very freeing experience, both in the craft as well as seeing the final product and his sketches are more detailed.

About the Tie-Dye Patterns____________________________________________________

Each tie-dye project is hand-tied and prepared and could take 45 minutes or more. There is no manufacturing process involved. Projects are usually handled one-at-a-time, unless two or more projects share a color-scheme. After preparation, each project is soaked between 90-180 minutes, depending on colors used and lighter versus darker. Some projects have items included within the folds to add additional effects. Original tie-dye projects are not available for sale. These are created on repurposed fabrics, ranging from pillowcases to flat and fitted sheets. Typical sizes unless otherwise noted in a special post are:

Small Mural (21in/53.34cm by 36in/91.44cm)
Medium Mural (90in/228.6cm by 106in/269.24cm)
Large Mural (108in/269.24cm by 108in/274.32cm)

Only the patterns are available and on RedBubble and TeePublic. (www.redbubble.com/people/ajbruner77) (www.teepublic.com/user/ajbruner77)

Patrons at that are Watercolors or Artist Sets receive a one-of-a-kind tie-dye mural. 

About the Resin Casting__________________________

Currently creating pendants, bookmarks, dice, and tons more. Resin pieces may include different colors, sparkles, or small items (depending on the size) and range in size from a penny up to a football.
Watercolors and Artist Sets include resin casts as rewards!

3D Printing_____________________________________

Mostly the 3D printing process is reserved for creating tools to be used for #ColoringTherapy. However, some projects may be printed and sold, or otherwise made available to patrons. Lithophanes are a good example of such projects.
Watercolors and Artist Sets will receive 1 lithophane after their first month.



#ColoringTherapy is a not-for-profit venture. Monies gathered are used to purchase additional supplies to support our projects, with remaining balances being donated to my son's ESE (special needs) school, unless otherwise specifically noted in a public post.
