Second Transformative Painted Collage Portrait

Here is my second transformative painted collage portrait.

In these workshops, I have participants bring in an image to transform.  They can print an image of a loved one, archetype, hero, etc and add scraps, words and a lot of paint.

First step is to either cover printed image with gel medium or matte Modge Podge to make it strong enough to paint on.

While it is drying we simply play with paint and textures on the background and add bits of collage that will peak through the paint.

Finally, words or other imagery can be added to help build a story around image. 14088669_1097490346953949_4322704024362644634_n-1.jpgFor more information on upcoming classes visit  expressiveartsstudio.weebly.com and artwork at lauraknapikbohn.com
