There is not a single touch of paint on this project - this large, beautiful collage on canvas is all about the rust, paint and metallic look! What a great way to try many techniques at once: building some truly dimensional, intriguing composition, using two amazing and unique Art Extravagance sets: Rust Paste and Patina Paste and finally finish it all with really beautiful (and user-friendly!) Metallique Waxes.
Poetry of Patina is an amazing, statement canvas with a great range of innovative products on basis of some good mixed-media techniques - which can be easily used on many other projects such as home decor and altered objects or journal pages.
All the elements, paints and mediums are provided – this project is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.
It is all about light and texture... My inspiration for this project were old stone walls, rusted, corroded metal and that feeling of revealing a mystery which was hidden somewhere in the darkness for long centuries.
“ The ARTifact” has it all – and during this mixed-media class I'll take you on a creative journey during which we will discover together, layer after layer, the amazing possibilities of using Art Extravagance Texture Pastes and Art Basics mediums. I'll share my ideas for building the dimension and creating a weathered, distressed look with a touch of dark, a bit industrial feeling. I'll guide you through the process of making 3D composition and painting it in the most interesting way focusing on creating a dramatic effect of light and shadow using such products as Black Gesso, Modeling Pastes, Soft Gels and Art Ingredients Mica Powders.
During this class you will not only create an amazing project you can display on your wall but also learn a lot of inspiring techniques, discover possibilities of getting custom look and combining the products to get the best results. All these techniques can be easily used on many other projects such as home decor and altered objects or journal pages.
