$ 155  

Lets Face it..there is way to much crazy going on inside this noggin of mine that I'd care to admit! This workshop was inspired by the multitude of idea's (creative and otherwise) that pop into the “Artist” brain. We artists...see possibility everywhere...which more ideas!! I only wish my hands would work as fast as the ideas that pop into my head!
In this class we will add texture to a Face Shrine Kit by adding layers of findings and covering them in assorted paints! We will also include a sweet scene inside the shadowbox portion of the shrine.

• Kit $25 to be paid to the instructor at beginning of class includes:
Face Shrine, a handful of assorted masonite wood pieces to incorporate into your piece, bird/eggs/butterflies cut outs, phrase stickers, chipboard word, dresden trim and art stones.
Materials to bring to class:
• Anything reasonably flat that you want to incorporate into the piece. For example, keys, buttons, small charms,seed beads, micro beads
• Tacky Glue
• Foam Dots/or cardboard
• Scissors
• Crochet trim scraps
• Brushes/water cup
• Flatback crystals
• Glitter Glue
• Assorted paints with Black paint (my favorite color combination is Deco Arts American Chartreuse, Coastal Waters and Deco Arts Media Fluid Primary Magenta)
• White Gesso
• Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Color Shine
