For the Record altered art class with Finnabair (Anna Dabrowska)



For the Record - altered vinyl record with a lot of layers and sparkle
Your imagination is the limit! Try dimensional mixed-media techniques on a bit unusual surface - vinyl record - to create unique, rich and sparkly composition based on Art Extravagance Pastes, Art Basics Gesso and Gels and a lot of embellishments including natural materials and elements created with molds.

During the class you will work on high-quality products from my mixed-media collection including Mica Powders, Glitters and Art Alchemy Liquid Acrylic Paints. Together we will build our projects step-by-step and and you will see that presented techniques are very versatile and be easily used on many other projects such as collage or scrapbooking layouts. Finnabair will share her experience with you and try to give you plenty of information about the tools and products used.

All the paints, mediums and elements needed to finish the project are provided - except the vinyl record - please bring one with you! This class is suitable both for advanced and beginning students. Class time: about 3.5h

What to Bring:

 

  • Old vinyl record (33 rpm - long playing)
  • Apron
  • Heating tool/gun
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Extension cord
  • Favourite flat and fine-tipped soft hair paintbrushes in various sizes
  • Favourite palette knife
  • Water cup
  • Empty spray bottle for water
  • Small photo for the top of the composition



          "During all the classes I create new projects with students, step-by-step and encourage them to try the techniques instead of recreating the project. They have a wide range of mixed-media supplies provided by me and I allow them to choose their colors/composition as much as possible. I will be focusing on Prima - Finnabair products of course, but not limiting to them."  Finnabair
