Join Jane Davies as she shares her favorite texture making techniques and materials.
You'll learn over a dozen ways to make beautiful paper that will be uniquely your own. She shows you how a simple knowledge of design and color can help you expand your collection of collage papers with design enhancing papers. She focuses on color schemes, value contrast, color contrasts, scale and mood.
In this workshop you see Jane's high energy approach to glazing, textures, spritzing & blotting, painting, spattering, non-traditional uses of the brayer, mono-printing, uses of the gel plate, resists, alcohol, sumi-e ink, altered paper, staining and layering.
Jane then tackles composition in collage. She demonstrates using a grid study. She then moves on to a landscape style composition. You hear her describe the rationale of her choices. Seeing her work is fun, enlightening and freeing!

Put pattern to work with mixed media artist Anne Bagby.
In this DVD workshop you'll learn to create your own stamps, masks, stencils, and paper as you build a truly customized collage. Work fast and free, layering homemade paper and lush acrylic glazes to design an intricate and eclectic figure. Anne makes all her own collage materials. She combines stamped and painted patterns to create the wafer-thin paper she uses throughout the workshop.
You'll transfer antique designs to hand-carved stamps and cut contact paper masks to guide custom stencils. Anne uses an experimental process, working simultaneously on five figures. She takes risks with the weakest, using the freedom of collage to find creative solutions. You'll quickly build shapes with paper and slowly unify them with controlled glazes.
