Acrylic Photo Image Transfer & Acrylic Skins with Shari Pratt

Sat, October 14, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Sat, October 14, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Explore the amazing capacity of acrylic media and how it can be used in alternative ways.

Learn a variety of methods to transfer your own images and photographs into gel mediums and incorporate them into your artwork using tapes, gels, grounds and pastes. You will also learn how to make direct image transfers, an immediate way of incorporating photocopied images into your work.

Shari will also teach you how to create image transfers as acrylic skins, a great technique for embedding your images into other surfaces, in a more intermixable way (when working in acrylic).

You will leave with a solid understanding of how to create both direct image transfers and images transfers as acrylic skins. The ideas are endless of how to integrate them into intriguing collaged works.
