SPRAY INK SPLASH
Saturday, August 25th
1 to 6PM
Spray inks are wild and crazy and out of control.
They're unpredictable, spontaneous, and amazing.
They have an allure and an effect that is so compelling, once you use them you want more and more and more.
(At Unfold Studio, spray inks are restricted...first time students are not allowed to use them, lest they be required to give up more control than they can handle the first time out of the gate!)
Spray inks are a great material for art journaling, for backgrounds, drips, splotches and splashes of color. They can be used with or without stencils. They can be puddles or add a subtle sheen. Spray inks add pattern, image, and atmosphere to every page.
But frankly, the best part of spray inks is that they are just so much fun!
Join me for an afternoon of pure play and exploration! Get your hands dirty (literally) with inks, create a multitude of journal page backgrounds, collage material, and even a deck of inspiration cards, if you so choose. Use inks on their own, with stencils, with handmade masks, and with several mediums to see what they are capable of.
I'll lead you through a variety of techniques and give you lots of time to explore the joy and surprise of spray inks.
You'll need to bring two art journals to use for this class. Canson XL Mixed Media, Dylusions Creative Journal, or Strathmore Watercolor Journal are perfect. Make sure they have lots of free (unused) pages. Buy the extra one in the studio! Or bring them from home. Heavy paper is essential. (See note below for first time students.)
