C270 - Deli Paper Backgrounds for Mixed Media

Lisa Morales
9:00 - 4:30
Sunday - June 2

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

Learn how to create interesting backgrounds for your mixed media projects using printed deli paper. The transparency of deli paper make it ideal for mid- level layering, allowing what is underneath to show through while also being a surface to place additional layers. A small collage using painted papers will finish the project.

Materials Fee $10 Payable to instructor at beginning of class Includes:
Hand Painted and Specialty Paper
Printed Deli Paper
Full-Size Pattern
Wax Paper
6X8 Canvas Panel
Ink and Paint

Supplies Needed to Bring for Class:

*Brush for applying background color – I like to use a 1.5” flat brush
*Flat brush for adhesive – ½ inch - the inexpensive, disposable, synthetic bristle kind
1 or 2 light medium body paints for background – think soft colors like milky white or a soft yellow or lavender
*Apron or cover up
*Container for water
*Paper Towels
*Baby wipes – small travel size
*Ballpoint pen

Optional items:
Postage stamps
Rubber stamps
Texture Plates
