Distressing the Tray

So this is just like a medium grit, sandpaper, there's, nothing special about it at all. And I just take it in kind of rubber over the edges and had a little bit of stress. And just bring back a little bit of that wood. And I just like that adds a little bit more texture and depth to the peace, rather than it. Just seeing that flat brown paint gives it a little character, and you can pick off a cz much or as little as you want. If you like it, the way that it is, and you don't want to distress it all. You know, I just kind of like the way that it looks when I sign so.

Class Description

Three-dimensional art has so much character, but it can be logistically difficult to create and quickly become heavy and burdensome to handle. In 3D Mixed Media Art Displays, Stephenie Hamen will teach reliable techniques you can use to create pieces that are as structurally sound as they are beautiful.

This class will solve the mystery around how to create and recreate collage parts and pieces in a lightweight form, while keeping things interesting and detailed. You’ll learn how to:

  • Create a mold to produce additional parts
  • Use paper clay to make additions to your artwork
  • Incorporate found objects and ephemera

You’ll learn what materials work well together and what types of adhesive work best for securely adhering them. Stephenie will inspire you to explore and experiment, while making pieces that are fun and dimensional.

If you are ready to freshen up your work, need a boost of inspiration, or just a little guidance on the logistics – 3D Mixed Media Art Displays is the class for you.
