Techniques Taught In This Course

– Explore new ways to make mark marks and adding textures to pages of watercolor paper using a smooth mixture of gesso and modeling paste that has a similar texture to Venetian plaster
– Build our artist book page by page and bind it together using in an easy process that is one of my favorites
– Cover our page surfaces with color, and then cover the colors with a creamy layer of white so that only “windows” remain
– Scratch, dig and uncover the colors  once hiding beneath the surface and add smaller details with a pencil, pen and paintbrush
– Glaze and paint our own colors over thin deli paper to use later in our art works
– Collage and stitch to give your pages a personal touch that is only yours
– Delight as small details and rich textures are created
– Texture and stain metal sheets with wire brushes or sand paper
– Attach hinges, tags and small frames to your books
– Your book will be one you treasure forever. Your imagination has been stirred, color has changed before your eyes and daydreams swirl through your imagination!
