and so...it's off to class at Ten Seconds Studio..
one of the first things you see as you enter the lobby is this wall of books that Cheryl found on one of her trips and brought back. GREAT TASTE CHERYL !!
and, as you enter the classroom you realize that Megans been a busy little camper the day before setting up the whole shebang while Cheryl and I have been galavanting all over town !
and gorgeous things that Cheryl and Megan have made using their TenSecondsStudio metals
some samples have a combination of the metal and the Ver-Day paints
these paints work on ALL surfaces...like ceramic tiles for example. The patina spray is what gives it the all out rusted appearance...all depending on what color Ver-Day paint you applied underneath.
Cheryl demonstrates...we follow !
first we are going to do a frame.
She shows us how to lay down the metallic paints, spray (while wet) using a LOT of Ver-Day Patina then lay down things like plastic wrap or bubble wrap for texture.
for mine, I used a cork dipped in the various colors of Ver-Day metallic paints, touched cork to the bag, and sprayed heavily with the Patina.
everyone gets mighty busy...
now...in order to rust anything that is made of metal you do have to prime it first with a barrier spray...any home improvement store will carry primer sprays.
then, as I did on this Ranger Memory Frame,...spray prime it, paint it with the Ver-Day paints then spray while wet with Ver-Day patina.
here's a mask that Cheryl did. Hard to believe it isn't iron!!
they sell this in a kit !!
YES....we worked on the BRAND NEW VER-DAY CLOTH
This is NOT a canvas cloth. This goes through any die cutting machine. We made cuff bracelets. It deeply etches on a die cutting macihne like never before !
in addition to the new Ver-Day cloth...they also have these completely fabulous and new Arty-Farty Fibers
they come in 5 yard increments or by the skein. They are made from all kinds of repurposed material, including silk.
they made a marvelous bracelet using them
I got myself 4 diffrent colors so I could try 'looming' them...see..I bought a little loom!!
and this (below) is actually my favorite picture from the day...when Cheryl showed us this 'experiment' I saw a man right away...do you?
his head, white shirt, his outstretched arms, his pants and shoes...??
