Okay. Maybe not 50. But a lot. In this workshop, you will be putting your paint playlist on repeat as we go through a series of paint layering techniques that you can apply to all your creative projects. Everybody will be provided with a journal to work in that we will fill up, page after page, with layered backgrounds. Additive and subtractive paint techniques, properties of acrylic paint, mark making, application strategies, and much more will be included. In the end, you will leave with a new journal that you can keep as a technique reference manual or continue to work in to complete your journal pages in your own personal style.
I will be providing a journal for each participant plus a number of mixed media supplies not listed. In addition, I am bringing the following to share but you are welcome to bring your own as well: unmounted rubber stamps, stencils, and textured material.
Fluid acrylic paint (both opaque and translucent)
Black and white gesso
Chip brushes (1/2 and 1 inch brushes work well)
Water container and paint palette
Permanent Ink Pads (StazOn or Archival)
Dye Ink Pads
Mark makers (paint pens, gel pens, pencils, markers, crayons, etc)
Heat gun (optional)
