I started the final morning of the Collage & Transfer Print workshop with a little light ironing. Ironing my artwork that is – demonstrating a transfer print technique to the group!
We then got on with some fast & dirty collage assembly as above….
After quickly sticking our found papers down, a light coat of gesso was applied, followed by a wash of a creamy-tint, to give a slightly aged appearance and ‘knock back’ the text a little…..
The second method of the morning involves lots of layering – gesso – found papers – dilute acrylic – candle wax – oil pastels….and maybe a little proceon as well….
Everyone got stuck in (literally) and gamely experimented with both methods…
The results as you can see are pretty impressive…..
I have a feeling these guys will be having a lot of fun with collage in the future!
Nice work everyone – Happy Collaging!
