How to Use Gold Leaf and Charcoal Powder

As an artist I know I get stuck in my comfort zone as far as materials go. Each material has its own characteristics and it takes time to learn them. Add that to new materials being introduced constantly in the art store and there are tons artists have never worked with.

Join me at The Artist Loft in Vancouver, WA, Saturday, August 24, 2019 at 11 am for a 2 hour workshop. You will learn how to use gold leaf and powdered charcoal. In this workshop I will introduce you to metal leafing (gold, copper, silver etc) and charcoal powder (as well as some unusual techniques to use it).

Materials to bring: Something to apply the gold leaf to. This can be a painting (no oil paint in the area to gold leaf) or a 3-D object (such as a frame or small sculpture). A drawing pad to experiment with one way to use charcoal powder. I will provide the gold leaf, charcoal powder, and related materials.
