Pretty Peony in Watercolor Batik July 14th Saturday 5-8pm est
We will work together to make a Pretty Peony in Watercolor batik. A work of art you will be proud to display or give as a gift!
Learn a new technique of painting called watercolor batik.
This class is suitable for both beginner and experienced painters with little or no watercolor experience.
Watercolor batik is the process of using traditional watercolor paint and wax to create unique and beautiful batik-style paintings on Japanese rice paper. This process is similar to the age-old technique where melted wax is applied to fabric as a resist and then the fabric is dipped in dye.
Students will begin the process with a drawing and then learn to create highlights and shadows, as well as how to mask areas of the project with wax.
A reference photo will be provided or students are welcome to use their own. A high contrast photograph or line drawing will work best for transferring the image to rice paper. Use the light from a window or lightbox to prepare your paper.
