Friday Fun at The ARTbar and Saturday Play

Before the Golden presentation at The ARTbar last night . . .
From left to right: Michi from Michi Rhymes with Peachy, Marilyn from Studio 274 and my friend Jacki Long who doesn't have a blog, but teaches and creates wonderful art! As a matter of fact, she's teaching her Rip-Roaring Collage class again at The ARTbar this coming Saturday, August 15th
Amy Shawley gave a really informative demo last night! We learned about acrylics: binders, evaporation and surfactant. Pigments: inorganic and organic, color mixing and lightfastness. Golden paint lines and their characteristics - heavy body versus fluid versus open. Iridescent and Interference, gels, grounds, skins/digital mixed media, fiber paste and MORE!



I played with some Golden Crackle Paste on a piece of wood this morning . . .

Wow that looks like a lot of great information! Your crackle paint on that piece of wood looks absolutely fabulous and I'm sure this is just the beginning of something wonderful:)

Hi Sherry
I just found your blog but many of the images have (?) the question mark icon rather than the photos. can you possibly respost the images of the golden surfaces you created?? they sound great! pm
