Whole Day at my studio or venue to suit you
Mask & Sparkle
A rainbow of experience! You can't get it wrong!
This workshop produces the most individual results as there are so many ways to combine the methods and materials
Any of you familiar with water colour will know this technique.
It’s a bit like batique, the areas you protect with the masking fluid will resist the paint.
You can build up layers of colour and keep adding the fluid to preserve parts you do not want to change, then peel off the rubber-like fluid to reveal the surprising results!
My favourite moments in this workshop, when the magic really happens are when things going ‘wrong’ or not as expected and we find a way to ‘rescue’ the work using another process. Necessity being the mother of invention the students surprise themselves and become more willing to take risks and experiment more widely. Then I gaze on in amazement as they produce results which even I would never have dreamed of!
I have methods for creating pin-point twinkly stars,milky way effects and perfect moons which most students can master with a little practice
Then there are the pearl powders which can be applied with a paint brush in delicate patterns or simply cover the entire stone in a layer of shine.
Then there is the option to add glitter or gentler ‘fairy-dust’ Be as ‘bling’ or as subtle as you wish
