Sponge, scrape, and stamp every ounce of color out of your acrylic paints with textile artist Sherrill Kahn.

In this mixed media video workshop, you'll discover textures that enliven any paper or fabric project, from collages to clothing. With no brushes or drawing skills required, beginners will feel welcome, and experienced artists will find quick and innovative ways to add color to collage. Sherrill sponges down base colors at breakneck speed before helping you master a variety of painting tools. She layers opaques with craft sticks and scrapers, flows liquid colors into fabric, and adds metallic accents with an applicator tip. She paints on cotton, card stock, interfacing, and more, and each surface produces equally striking results. She combines paper and fabric as she finishes the workshop with two complete collages.

BONUS CLIP: Styrofoam Plate Printing
In this demonstration mixed media artist Sherrill Kahn teaches you how to print exciting handmade designs on paper or fabric using recycled styrofoam plates. Sherrill draws freehand designs with a ball point pen then uses acrylic paints to stamp the resulting patterns onto fabric. You can use these printed designs in collages, garments, and other mixed media artwork.
