CREATE WITH PAINT
Section One: Projects
Trish will take you step by messy painty step through the process of creating three projects. A canvas, a cardstock tag and a pair of wooden arches all get the Trish treatment as you watch in real time! As she works, she will share a myriad of tips and tricks on applying paint, and how to achieve that all-important texture. Watch how all the smearing, sponging, stencilling, printing and stamping with vibrant paint colours comes together to form fabulous layered, textured backgrounds. Trish will also demonstrate different ways to add quirky rubber stamped images to enhance the distinctive backgrounds, and how to use different types of text to add those little extra details to your work.
Section Two: Finishing Touches
In this section Trish explores some of the different ways of adding finishing touches to your 3D painty artwork. Watch as wings and chain turn a painted papier mache torso into a stunning steampunk themed assemblage!
