Friday-Sitting Figurine & Easy 3D Flex Workshop
Making a fabric sculpture allows complete freedom of expression in creating wonderful figurines that have their own individuality and presence. First a wire armature is constructed, ‘mummified’ and then ‘dressed’ and draped with fabric dipped into the fabric hardener Powertex. We guide you step by step to transform your armature into a unique sculpture. Whether you are a beginner or advanced artist, you’ll love this workshop.
A plaster figurine (Suma) and Styrofoam are the basic materials to start this unique project. Easy 3Dflex (which is an organic filling compound) will be mixed with Powertex to get sculpting clay. When applied on our figure we will press very detailed prints into the surface, with rope, screws, buttons, stencils, etc...This way you get the most amazing effects. We deepen the color by spraying Bister, which is a brown patina. Once dried to the air or heat source cracks appears and it gets rock hard. Our artwork is mounted on a beautiful black metal base.
Saturday-Standing Figurine & Animal Workshop
What is more inspiring than Nature and Animal Kingdom? These 2 projects come from our Animal Kingdom Book. After making a frame we will bring our animal alive by applying air dry clay (mix of Powertex and Stone Art). The second layer of the Scottish Highlander is made with cotton dread, while the second layer around the neck and head of the Bison is made of a layer of Easy 3Dflex clay. To finish we dry brush with Bronze Gold.
For the standing figurine we start with a plaster torso and hands. It will be mounted on a beautiful black metal base so it looks very professional
Sunday-Mixed Media on Canvas Workshop
No acrylics or oils needed to create a one of a kind Mixed Media. Learn to paint with an environmental friendly polymer and create textures, crackle effects and much more. You can bring stamps or templates to press detailed prints into the surface. 20” x 20” gallery wrapped canvas provided
