Textures and Transfers

August 26, 2022

Schedule: 9 am-4 pm Fri

Instructor: Roann Mathias

Registration Deadline: Aug 15

Description

Image transfers are one of the best ways to add photos to your work. Transfers create luscious, transparent layers that can be painted over and altered with different acrylic media, adding stunning dimensions to the page. In reverse, transfers can be applied over textured surfaces, adding more depth. Both inkjet and Xerox transfer techniques will be taught. Explore new and unusual techniques using joint compound, crackle paste, gesso, and molding paste to create irresistible textures and raised areas. This will be so much fun that you won’t want to stop adding layers and textures!
Materials fee covers all the acrylic mediums, two pages of transfers, handouts, and the use of the instructor’s tools and supplies.
