This collage is made with techniques from the Puttin on the Glitz class. It was featured in Somerset Studio back in May of 2004, It is Aluminum Foil and Molding paste and other things, I don;t quite remember!

My class, “Puttin” on the Glitz” is near and dear to my heart. It is the class that got me started teaching at Art Retreats. It is the class that was written up in Somerset Studio Magazine in 2004.  It is my favorite class to teach! And I will be teaching it this month in Colorado at The Artist’s Nook! This is the class that has most of the techniques that are shown on my DVD. But we won’t be working on a painting like I did on the DVD. We’ll be working on small pieces of paper, learning all sorts of textural techniques. Then we’ll paint these papers and build a small collage from them – mounted on a textured canvas background!  Students make a BUNCH of beautiful papers in this class that will give them lots of great collage elements for future use. Plus, they’ll learn a lot about acrylic textural stuff. It will be my favorite kind of day, messing with paints and shiny foils!!! The techniques that I teach in this class, I use on almost every piece of artwork that I do in some way.  There are still a few opening s in the class if you want to come and join us!!! There are reasonable hotels in the area! Hope to see you there!!!!

This painting is on a stretched canvas. But, as you can see, I have added a bit of textured metallica to it as well. This type of thing will be very possible for you to do if you have taken the class!
