simply irRESISTable resist techniques workshop by Donna Downey

Saturday, January 16th
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Fee: $60.00

Robert Palmer said it best, but beyond the dancing girls in the background and the 1980’s ref­erence, this class is all about RESIST techniques! You will learn and design a sampler style visual handbook as you create and experiment with 10 distinctly different resist techniques, using paints, wax, inks, glues, matte medium, crackles and UTEE. Learn how and when to use the products you already have in your scrap supplies at home to create additional layers of dimension and texture to your scrapbooking, cardmaking, and artistic style. Using your newly created sampler handbook as your guide, the class culminates with the creation of a one of a kind and unique art piece that you create applying the techniques learned in the workshop.

students will need to bring:
• 2 paint brushes (about ½ to 1”)
• glass jar or mug for water
• heat gun
• small soft cloth or small piece of t-shirt
(for a technique not to wear)
• favorite liquid adhesive
