Acrylic Lab: Series 02 Textures, Magical FX, and Finishing Sheens

  • The Lab at Ada's 425 15th Avenue East Seattle, WA, 98112 United States (map)

Date: February 27th, 2019

Time: 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM & 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM

Join visual artist Julian Peña in playing and manipulating with acrylic paint using mediums and additives. Everyone of all skill levels and experiences are welcomed to join. He will explore different techniques and manipulations using acrylic mediums and additives with demonstrations. We will explore many different ways of creating texture, utilizing special effects paint, and creating sheens on a surface. Examples include foiling with mylar, metal leaf, using rubbing alcohol on paint, “puffing” paint, patinas, and iridescence. The workshop will also be supplemented with visual aides. Like all of my workshops, this will be hands-on! 

Each acrylic alchemist will have canvas strips to use throughout the whole course and materials will be provided, which will result in individual works of art! Why not show off the work that came out of the workshop? You can even share with the art community and post your works with the hashtag #AcrylicLab and #thelabatadas (this will put you in the running for a contest to win a free ticket to one of my future classes).

FYI please bring an apron and/or wear something that you won’t mind having paint on. Accidents do happen!
