Understanding the materials, the ingredients and the techniques to use those mediums will benefit and enhance an artists practice. This course will invite artists to explore and experiment with making paint (watercolor, oil, conte, acrylic) textural mediums (coldwax , encaustic, molding mediums, air dry clays) and glazing mediums/other (damar varnish, pigment paste, resists -masking fluids, vaseline, gesso etc.) methods to thicken, alter and change existing paint.
