Powders and Pastels

In our July workshop we will be experimenting with Pan Pastels and Mica powders. Kay B and Kay P will be our guest demonstrators this month. Kay B will be showing you how to create backgrounds by blending Pan Pastels. She will be exploring using different textures of card, using the pastels over Versamark ink and removing colour using an eraser.

Kay P will also be using Versamark Ink but with Mica powders. She will be demonstrating the "Split Negative Mica technique". You can see below that the same Versamark stamped image is used with mica powders to create both "negative" and "positive" sections i.e. the powder sticks to the stamped image in some sections but not in others. Intrigued? All will be made clear on the night!!

Don't forget to bring your ink blot challenge pages this month. We will be operating a voting system on the night again to see who gets the next workshop free.

See you all on Wednesday.
