Description

Saturday, April 7, 2018

This popular workshop has now been expanded to a full day. Although part of the class is self-directed, the greater portion will focus on the application of gum ammoniac, Instacoll, gesso, and Createx, for the laying of genuine gold leaf and synthetics, culminating in the design of a gilded letter.

A touch of gold can go a long way to lift your work from the mundane to the celestial. There are so many types of gold and metallic mediums available that it can be quite bewildering trying to decide which is most appropriate for the work at hand. In this class we will try out 32 kinds of gold pens, gouache, watercolor, acrylics, powders, pencils, and gold leaf sizes to compose a ready-reference chart of each sample for future use. We will consider the use of each kind in a particular context; e.g., a raised gold leaf background is great for a poem or manuscript, but probably is not worth the effort to adorn a simple envelope when a Uniball pen will do the trick. We shall also see how gold shadowing, outlining, and lozenges can add an extra dimension of punch and pizzazz to a finished piece, guaranteed to elicit cries of delight from your patron.
