"For the Record" - altered vinyl record with a lot of layers and sparkle (30 cm base)
Your imagination is the limit! Try dimensional mixed-media techniques on a bit unusual surface - vinyl record - to create unique, rich and sparkly composition tased on Art Extravagance Pastes, Art Basics Gesso and Gels and a lot of embellishments including natural materials and elements created with moulds. During the class you will work on high-quality products from my mixed-media collection including Mica Powders, Glitters and Art Alchemy Liquid Acrylic Paints. Together we will build our projects step-by-step and and you will see that presented techniques are very versatile and be easily used on many other projects such as collage or scrapbooking layouts. I'll share my experience with you and try to give you plenty of information about the tools and products used. The teacher will supply all the paints, mediums and elements needed to finish the project except the vinyl record - please bring one with you!
"Colours of the past" - dimensional collage (20x60 cm canvas)
Negative space, texture, patterns and colours – all that can fit in one project which is the journey into the world of dimensional collage.“Colours of the Past" is a great chance to clean your head and keep your hands busy… simply follow your intuition and enjoy the process of building layers, glueing and painting. This class is focusing on a bit different way of composing and organising your project but also finding a way of using the supplies we all have somewhere close in our reach: in our studios, kitchens, garages, gardens… with the presented techniques and your favourite choice of colours you can create a truly unique artwork which will be a statement piece on your wall or shelf!
During this full day class, we will build the project together from the bottom to the top, building layers of the project and trying different techniques. I will do my best to break the process into easy to follow steps. We will try different art mediums from all of my lines including White Heavy Gesso, Icing Pastes or Heavy Body Gel, new Art Alchemy Liquid Acrylics Paints, Waxes, Art Stones and more! You will have a wide choice of finishing possibilities and colours to choose – and we will use such materials as Tissue Papers, embellishments created with the moulds and HDF bases and elements.
All the techniques can be easily used on many other projects such as home decor and altered objects or journal pages. The project is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.
"Shabby House" – decorated panel (30 cm tall house)
Do you prefer the “lighter” and more feminine version of mixed-media? Do you love working with paper and stamps, but would like to try a bit more adventurous techniques based on paints and aret mediums as well? Would you like to create a dimensional project which will add a special, personal touch to your house or make a perfect gift for those you love?
During this class you can try it: step-by-step we will work on all the layers and textures to build our 3D object out of HDF bases and elements and a range of embellishments. We will be trying a range of products from my Art Basics and Art Alchemy lines including gesso, gels and Liquid Acrylics and using my Tissue Papers, paper flowers and metal embellishments we will create beautiful, composition… all that means you are getting a lot of creative freedom combined with useful tips and inspirational techniques which you can apply to many future projects!
All the elements, paints and mediums are provided – this project is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.
"Magical Teapot" - altered frame with beautiful textures and details (20cm tall frame)
Simplicity and elegance is timeless, but many of us have also the love for the opulence and decadence, the richness of colours, elements and meanings all blended together to create one, truly baroque look. Let yourself be inspired by the visual abundance of layers, textures and metallic colours stepping a bit into the ground of steampunk, vintage and everything metallic and shiny.|
During this class we will be working on inside and outside of the metal frame. We will focus on altering techniques which will make your project beautiful and unique - adding details, textures based on Art Extravagance pastes and colours using the popular range of art mediums from mixed-media collection by Finnabair. You will have a chance to try such products as soft and heavy gels, gesso in composition with Art Ingredients and a range of Art Alchemy Metallique Waxes and Rust Effect Pastes. Together we will build our projects step-by-step and you will see that presented techniques are very versatile and be easily used on many other projects such as collage or journal pages. I'll share my experience with you and try to give you plenty of information about the tools and products used. "Magical Teapot" is an exciting way to dive into the world of 3D mixed-media and altering, working with pastes, paints and art ingredients of different kinds.The teacher will supply all the paints, mediums and elements needed to finish the project.
