Gold Leaf & Acrylic Paint Techniques
Tuesday 12th of March 2019.
6.00 - 9.00pm
ILLUMINATE is an updated and developed version of my 'All that Glitters' metal leaf workshops that incorporates more of a technical base for working with gold/metal leaf in mixed media artwork.
Working on a small 20x25cm stretched canvas, plus a small primed MDF board panel which gives a fabulous smooth base to use with the metal leaf & acrylic glazes.
Learn step by step how to prepare different surfaces, and what specific mediums, fixatives and equipment to use in the process of applying and sealing metal leaf in your artwork.
Also some painting techniques with acrylic mediums, glazes & creating texture in layers that work especially well with a variety of imitation metal gold, silver & copper leaf.
Some wonderful, exciting effects are possible with this combination of mediums!
