A hands-on elaboration of "Painting With Plastic; Multicolor Embossing with Fred B. Mullett", Somerset Studio. Expanding the methods of multi-color printing with multi-color embossing and watercolor additions, this class is geared toward the experienced student, though could be considered a "sink or swim" lesson for beginners. Runs approximately 4 hours. Includes handouts and a large supply of instructor-provided supplies. Max - 12 students.
What to bring: all supplies will be provided, however if you'd like to try some of your own embossing powders (or select from the wide array available for purchase at Rock Paper Scissors...) feel free to bring them along.

Spritz Me, Baby...Mo' Bettah!" Diffused Watercolor Effects
Finding merit in the "less is more" concept and the power of imprecision, this class focuses on the soluble properties of markers and other water-based media to achieve watery effects using rubber stamps. (This technique was a national winner in a recent contest sponsored by Tsukineko, Inc.) Bleaching out imagery on black paper, then re-introducing color with high contrast accents is also tackled to achieve startling effects. Runs approximately 4 hours. Some experience in stamping suggested. Includes handouts and a large supply of instructor-provided supplies. Raincoats are optional. (Just kidding!)
Max - 12 students.
What to bring: some of your favorite broad-tipped water-based markers as well as a basic tool kit
