Two amazing workshops are combined for the first time ever to offer you the most comprehensive and exciting exploration in working with plaster! In part one, you will learn the basics of working with plaster and plaster-like products for the purpose of creating deep texture in your 2-dimensional artwork. The focus will be in depth exploration of texturing techniques with trowels, sculpting and casting techniques, painting, tinting, sanding, carving, rolling, etching and writing into plaster. You will also learn and experiment with various plaster recipes for use in different forms of artwork such as wood, canvas, altered books, jewelry and more.
In part two, translating plaster into three dimensional form, you will learn plaster sculpture construction and armature as well as carving and shaping sculptural forms. You will also learn more about creating textural effects and hardness in the plaster. Expect to get messy but know that you will be able to finish a sculpture or two dimensional finished piece in this class even with no prior sculpting experience. A take-home booklet of hints, tips and general information for working with plaster at home will help them in future working with plaster.
