Sponge, scrape, and stamp every ounce of color out of your acrylic paints with textile artist Sherrill Kahn.


In this mixed media DVD workshop, you'll discover textures that enliven any paper or fabric project, from collages to clothing. With no brushes or drawing skills required, beginners will feel welcome, and experienced artists will find quick and innovative ways to add color to collage. Sherrill sponges down base colors at breakneck speed before helping you master a variety of painting tools. She layers opaques with craft sticks and scrapers, flows liquid colors into fabric, and adds metallic accents with an applicator tip. She paints on cotton, card stock, interfacing, and more, and each surface produces equally striking results. She combines paper and fabric as she finishes the workshop with two complete collages.



I want to thank you for such a large number of videos you have sent me. All contain valuable demonstrations of talented artists. My passion is the art of painting and am self-taught it with you ... I'm learning. Once again thanks. I have several DVD's and appreciate how professional the sound/video quality is. The artists give clear and organized lessons. Good job!
