Skins to Create a Painting
THREE SESSIONS: Wednesday MORNING Workshop
Learn how to make skins with Rose Cook. She will show you how to decide what works for a painting, and important techniques when cutting skins so they don't curl together, and the importance of having a design in mind. Once a skin is placed you cannot change your mind.
A second technique using Floretol, pouring medium Silicon and a blow torch right on the canvas is a little more challenging but very satisfying when done, the colours will explode into very interesting shapes; possibly flowers or very abstract depending where and how you place your paints.
This is a class to have fun with your imagination and paint, no limits just enjoy!
