January 11, 2019: Pouring For Fun after 9 am meeting
Join Oak Island Art Guild for our monthly free workshop at the Oak Island Recreation Center. PAULA CLINE has contagious enthusiasm for this art. She and her husband spend hours trying new combinations and ideas. Once you master the basic formula you will develop your own style and technique. Just observing them at work is a great tutorial and inspiration to get your own pour started. Don’t forget gloves and old clothes are the best attire! It can be messy when you’re having fun. Pouring medium will be furnished. You are invited to bring any acrylic paints you’d like to use, maybe certain colors or metallics, acrylic inks or specialty types for highlights. Basics and economical craft paint work fine; black and white is good to have. There will be paint available and drip pans to use. WD40 makes a good additive to produce cells, as does silicone oil, some hair serums and other household products. If you have some, bring them to try. A brush or pallet knife is handy, a straw to blow through, plastic pouring cups are faster to empty than paper, and a culinary torch will make cells pop with excitement. Bring what you have on hand. Small wrapped canvases are excellent. A value pack of 8 x 10s ideal. Other surfaces work too, and tiles are good. Bring 3 or 4 at least. Surfaces should be gessoed or sealed.
