Orphan Archetype…WOW!!!, what an adventure I had putting this piece together. I have created many pieces and this one is by far my favorite!!! So much is put into this one piece. Expect to take a couple of days from start to finish. One thing you can do before you begin this process, is to have all your colors picked out first. I have some sample images I created with color swatches in case you get stumped. 🙂 You will find these in the intro lesson.
I show you step by step how to add all the little bits. You will be creating textured papers, doing washes on the textured papers, stitching, beadwork, some wire stitching and more.
I have many close up images to guide you through the process.
If you are up for a challenge, this is the class for you!!! I would say this is for all skill levels, but there are parts where you do need to have some knowledge of what to do. I do show you step by step of the way.
What techniques will I learn in this course?
This is a big project and has many techniques. You will learn how to make your own textures, and paint onto paper to tear up later. You will be doing some stencil, hand painting, dry brushing, assembly with wire, beads, found objects and more!
Will I need special equipment?
No special equipment is needed. A heat guns is a plus or use a blow dryer.
Where can I buy my s.upplies?
I provide a downloadable supply list with links to where I typically purchase my own supplies. Many times, Amazon has what I need. I do my best to keep your cost down as I know art supplies can be costly.
About how long will it take me to complete this project?
This is an intense project with many layers. It took me about 2 days to complete this project. Some steps need time to dry and those can take up to one day. Take your time with this painting. Its one that I truely felt connected with and plan on making more like this.
Is there anything else you teach in this course?
I do show you close ups of making certain stiches by hand. You will also do some stapling which I just love the effect from doing this.
What if I get stuck and need some help?
I am here to help you with any issues you may come across. I do have a day job so certain times of the day I may not be able to assist you right away but I will do my best to respond as quickly as I can. You can contact me by email anytime.
I can also help you through Zoom in real time if needed.
