In this class we will work on vintage ledger papers and canvas boards to create vintage portraits using various techniques such as acrylics mixed with retarder, watercolors, chalk paints and charcoal. We will prepare our papers and canvas boards by plastering, stenciling and geli plate printing. I will have a couple of geli plates available so no need to buy one, but if you do have one please bring it so we will have more available.I will demonstrate on the geli plate how to work with matte and transparent colors. We will be painting and image transferring our images onto our rich new surfaces we created. I will demonstrate portrait painting using the various mediums. You will also have the option of image transferring a face and painting on top of the image. All levels will feel comfortable in this class.
