Today, Jan. 4, 2015

Today I taught and demoed how to paint using shaving cream as a medium.  Shaving cream has the wonderful effect of creating a regular painting into a waxy, dreamy encaustic look.

We added acrylic paints to a fistful of shaving cream, mixed, then painted on photocopies (on regular copy paper).

(See previous post for samples I did which appeared in an article I did for Somerset Studio magazine currently for sale at B & N and elsewhere.)

Next week we will be painting romantic images of victorian children in a loose manner to get into the Valentine's frame of mind.  Here are some examples.

 See you Monday morning, January 11, 2016!
