Molding Paste and the Book

August 29, 2020

Schedule: Saturday, 9am-4pm

Instructor: Jacqueline Sullivan

Registration Deadline: Aug 17

Description

Acrylic molding paste can be used to make beautiful textures and designs. The unique book covers created by these processes are quite striking! In this class students will learn and experiment with several molding paste techniques including stenciling, stamping, and scraping. Book covers are created by painting the molding paste and mounting on another piece of book board to form a cover. These covers will then be bound using a long stitch binding with a leather spine.

This class will be appropriate for beginner and intermediate book binders. Students will receive personalized instruction and critique throughout the workshop.

Instructor-provided supplies:
– Handouts describing techniques
– Molding paste
– Waxed linen thread in black or brown

“Mixed media, acrylic paints, calligraphy, bookbinding, and fiber arts – I have loved them all since I first discovered each medium. Personal artistic development has been a lifeline as I work my way through the challenges life has brought. My mixed media, book art, calligraphic, and acrylic work has been shown in galleries and top juried art fairs nationwide. I believe that asking ‘what if?’ and keeping a spirit of adventure and discovery is important as I follow my creative path and attempt to make something original. I love experimenting with texture, layers, marks, paint, and dyes. I have been a teaching artist for 30 years and I love to teach! Seeing the joy in a student’s face when they create something that pleases them brings me joy. I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given to inspire others to be creative. I am proud to be a certified teaching artist for Golden Paints.”
