Monday, January 4 demo will be….

Painting with Shaving Cream as seen in this article in Somerset Studio magazine.
This is the actual art submitted.

Bring image (s) that are black and white photocopies, paint brushes, water can, paints, palette knife, varnish

I will bring all that, plus shaving cream, varnish

The technique is simple with profound effect. Mix acrylic paint into shaving cream then spread on the paper image with either a paint brush or palette knife.  Leave it alone for 30 minutes as it develops. Adjust with either more paint, markers, colored pencil or nothing.  After it is comoletely dry we varnish it with gloss vanish.

It makes a dreamy effect like a memory cloud.
