Instructor: Eric Miller
Date(s): Friday, May 22nd, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM - CANCELLED

Learn how to use metal leaf (gold, copper, or silver) as a way to highlight and accent parts of your watercolor, oil, or acrylic paintings. Topics will include how to identify parts of the image that will benefit from a metallic look. You will also learn how to dress up an old frame with metal leaf. Students should bring a finished painting or a work in progress (paint must be dry!), and their paints, brushes, and other painting supplies. Also bring a small frame (5” X 7” or less) to re-finish with metal leaf. The instructor will provide all metal leaf supplies. Materials fee $5 payable to instructor.   (Note: this technique is difficult to convey in a photograph!)
