HEIDI BERGER ART WORKSHOP

An innovative watermedia technique using wax resist. November 4th, 5th and 6th 2014 10am - 4pm. Venue to be announced. Bds $500. (includes use of wax equipment and some materials)
In this three-day workshop you will experiment with a non-traditional watermedia technique which uses molten wax as resist. If you want to loosen up your style in any watermedia (watercolour, ink or fluid acrylics) and at the same time reinforce your knowledge of design, then you will find this interesting. This technique can be as simple or as challenging as you like.
