May General Meeting and Demo
with Tammy Seymour
May 16, 2017
Tammy will be demonstrating "watercolor batik" an amazing painting technique that has been adapted from silk batik. The theory -you use melted wax in place of masking fluid and Awagami Ginwashi rice paper in place of regular watercolor paper. The wax blocks the areas that aren't intended to receive paint. Batik isn't an exact science, so mistakes such as unintentional drips of wax and oozing color outside the design are part of the fun.
This process will help loosen you up and let your inner child out when you try this technique.
Members, please bring refreshments. Beverages and ice will be provided.
