Acrylic Layers Workshop Description:
I truly enjoy working with physical layers, the dimensionality, seeing through physical layers, hiding things, discovering things, the possibilities are endless. Many folks have asked me how I achieve these effects in my “Equine Layers” and “Fleeting Glimpses” series so I decided to share my discoveries in a workshop. In this workshop I will:
Review basic ideas/techniques of working in physical layers of Gel Medium and Acrylic Paint.
Demonstrate and assist you with:
Uses and effects of different Gel Mediums
Working with layers of gel and paint on various supports (300lb watercolor paper, smooth and rough gessoed panels, plexiglas, wood, canvas, and 3D object)
“Embedding” other media and materials
“Sanding back” and “Erasing” techniques
Discuss making design decisions unique to painting physical layers (not always intuitive)
Send you home with multiple small acrylic layer paintings, informed and energized with you creative juices flowing!

$190 – includes two days of instruction and basic supplies for multiple small acrylic layer paintings (6 different base supports & gel; Instructor will have basic acrylic colors and applicators, supply list will be provided for supplemental materials)
