Beyond the Brush: Painting with Palette Knives and more
We all have our favorite tools. After all, what artist doesn’t love a good paintbrush? What about other art tools like palette knives, catalyst tools and even household items?
I’ve fallen head over heels painting with tools that aren’t brushes. After this workshop, you will, too!
Moving beyond the brush opens us up to new possibilities and discoveries in how we create layers on our pages. Learn how to create new colors on your rich, luscious, unique pages. Gain confidence in exploring new ideas and take the plunge into a world of color. Learn that creative mistakes are only new possibilities. Bring your journal, some waxed paper and be ready to set off on a whole new adventure in creative painting.
Supply list: Your Journal, an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), baby wipes, cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, a container for your paint water, your favorite paint brushes, a water brush pen (OR an extra fine, detail paint brush *ONLY* IF you have one), a few of your favorite LARGE glue sticks (please trust me when I say that large glue sticks will last you longer. I always have two or three 40 gram glue sticks in my journal bag and that’s more than enough for a long weekend. You WILL go through the smaller glue sticks in MINUTES), roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don’t want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
