The most exciting canvases are the ones that entice us to touch them, even if we know we shouldn’t! In Acrylic Painting Workshop: Creating Canvas Textures, Nathalie Kalbach teaches you, and student Kristy Conlin, how to make your own temptingly textured canvases.
First, you’ll learn how to create a heavily layered canvas using found objects such as tissue paper, metal parts, ribbon, thread and more. Then reveal and unify the textures created using gesso and paint. As you work alongside Nathalie, you’ll then learn to create more textures using molding paste, heavy body acrylic paint, gesso, stencils and stamps. Finally, you’ll experiment with Effect Media including Glass Beads, Black Lava and Natural Sand for the ultimate tactile painting experience!
