$ 185  

Create luminous stained-glass-like tissue paper with acrylic paints, then learn how to make the most of the beautiful material you have created with collage techniques. We’ll explore which materials and methods work the best, how to vary the value and intensity of your colors, and then a few other techniques for developing design and pattern on your tissue papers. This workshop is open to beginners, but also appropriate for more experienced artists. Some knowledge of acrylic paints is helpful.
