Join Darlene Olivia McElroy in this fun class in blinging up your art. We will be covering holographic and regular foils, metal leaf, Joss Paper, sprays, and powders with a variety of ways both traditional and non traditional to apply them from adhesive size, spray adhesives, Double Tack, alcohol and rubber cement. Surface techniques such as how to brighten golds, age metal leaf, tarnish the leaf, and sanding tricks. Then we cover types of metallic paints, glitter and gesso and the magic we can create with them as well as some mix and match hocus pocus like casting and giving them bulk. Note: many of these techniques can be applied to clay, fabric, and 3D objects in addition to canvas and panels.
