Fun, fun, fun



I am back home, exhausted but happy from Nancy Crow's Barn taking Carol Soderlund's class, Color Mixing for Dyer's part 2. I had a blast! I learned all sorts of neat stuff that included monoprinting, silk screen printing, deconstructed silk screen printing, and dye painting both regular and thickened. We did printing and overpainting experiments, multiple color overdying, printing using a variety of resists, over rolling, under rolling, and stamping using thickened dyes. We even got a chance to do a shibori piece. Everyone in the class was just having a great time playing and we have a new color family to add to our "bible".

My next fun class will be an online class exploring textured surfaces.
