Collage Class

I am taking an online collage class.  Randel Plowman is teaching this class- he has a fun blog: http://acollageaday.blogspot.com/  He also has a great book out: The Collage Workbook.
These are for my 2nd assignment.  we were to pick out images from magazines with a glossy surface.  The images are then coated on both sides with gloss medium- one side at a time and then when they are dry- the collage is composed on a water color paper substrate.  Then the surface is protected with wax paper- I used some old dry mount release paper I had- you then iron the protected surface and the heat fuses everything together.  The collage keeps the gloss surface- I tend to prefer a mat surface but this was fun and I think I may well do some more of these.
I thought I needed a break from posting the series I have been working on!

  9. These are sensational Terry. It has been fascinating to see how the different artists taking this workshop have created such different pieces. Art really does reflect the artist.
