This workshop will blow your mind! Be amazed at what you can learn to do with glaze and colour. You'll be building on what you learned in Glazing I, to use Glaze, Colourants and Artist’s Colours to create some Bravura Finishes.
Taught by the legendary and internationally acclaimed professional Specialist Decorator, Lesley Anne Kinney, who has created rooms of distinction for politicians, millionaires and celebrities in the USA and UK, you will learn advanced glazing techniques on sample boards to take away.
In this super inspiring all-day class you will learn:
Tortoiseshell is a fabulous finish often seen on objet d’art and furniture. It is generally painted in small areas as tortoiseshells are not large but I don’t think there is anything wrong with using it in a larger more extravagant way.
This is a finish generally executed with glaze and artist’s colours.
Malachite is beautiful bright finish used in many ways. Again, like tortoiseshell it is traditionally done in small areas but again, it's a gorgeous finish that can be tweaked and applied to large areas for those brave enough to make a statement.
Malachite is green but once you've perfected the technique it can be very successfully done in other colours.
Lapis Lazuli was the stone from which blue pigment (ultramarine) was made. Blue as a colour in art was very, very expensive until a synthetic blue was invented in the early 19th Century. This is a lovely finish with specks of gold. It can be used as an accent or an overall finish.
Fee includes refreshments and tea, coffee and cordial. Please bring a packed lunch.
10am - 4pm at Bricktree Gallery, The Loft, Bobs Lane, Caistor, LN7 6UD
