Negative space, texture, patterns and colours – all that can fit in one project which is the journey into the world of dimensional collage.“Colours of the Past" is a great chance to clean your head and keep your hands busy… simply follow your intuition and enjoy the process of building layers, gluing and painting. This class is focusing on a bit different way of composing and organizing your project but also finding a way of using the supplies we all have somewhere close in our reach: in our studios, kitchens, garages, gardens… with the presented techniques and your favourite choice of colours you can create a truly unique artwork which will be a statement piece on your wall or shelf!
During this full day class, we will build the project together from the bottom to the top, building layers of the project and trying different techniques. I will do my best to break the process into easy to follow steps. We will try different art mediums from all of my lines including White Heavy Gesso, Icing Pastes or Heavy Body Gel, new Art Alchemy Liquid Acrylics Paints, Waxes, Art Stones and more! You will have a wide choice of finishing possibilities and colours to choose – and we will use such materials as Tissue Papers, embellishments created with the moulds and HDF bases and elements. All the techniques can be easily used on many other projects such as home decor and altered objects or journal pages. The project is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.
