Bliss Canvas with Dana – $25

September 24, 2016 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Technique.  Project.

Find your artistic Bliss as we make a canvas with lots of found objects. We will be using sprays and pigmented powders for color as well as stencils, texture paste and of course all manner of 3-demensional found objects.  The idea of this canvas is to create a piece of art that is uniquely you!

On this canvas I have used a combination of found metal pieces, chipboard, scraps of wooden cut-outs from other projects, and metal tape.  Choose whatever speaks to you – if you need inspiration, Kim has amazing chipboard pieces and metal findings that would make fantastic additions. Keep in mind it doesn’t matter the color – it will be all covered with – BLACK GESSO!!! Look for fun textures – DO NOT STRESS OVER IT!!!

Bring with you to class:

  • Your treasures
  • Background stencils – for texture
  • Texture paste
  • Black Gesso – I used Kept Creations – it is a fantastic consistency and coverage
  • Wet adhesive-gel medium, pva glue something like that
  • A strong adhesive – like E6000 to hold the bigger pieces to the canvas. Gel medium may not be strong enough depending on what objects you bring.
  • Spray inks – if you do not have them, no worries there will be some to use. If you do bring them keep in mind white will be a key color to bring (or off-white). That makes the magic
  • Pigment powders if you have them – not Colorburst-sorry doesn’t work for this technique. I have them if you don’t
  • I used a black permanent marker for lettering and a wink of Stella pen for highlights
