♥ I'm teaching at Cabin Fever Clay Fest in Laurel, MD, in February!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ♥

My CFCF 2011 pre-conference workshop is entitled “Vintage Texturing and Sculpting/ Tile Stories.’ In my workshop, you will learn to create the vintage looks that bring you back to the romance of old illustration, toys of a simpler era and the colors of pressed flowers. Using a tile as a starting point we’ll sculpt in relief, use ‘undercutting’ to create deep linear definition, texturing for lighter variations in line. There are wonderful ‘accidents’ that turn into lovely surprises. I often add banners of text, adding more contrast & charm. We’ll back the tile with felt & add a pretty vintage-style ribbon for hanging.
The painting technique involves applying oil paint, rubbing, & wiping in several steps. The way the image emerges as the steps progress is truly exciting!
