Some more Plastered Luminescence Inspiration

I have said it before and I will say it again....
Out of all the classes I have taught over the years, "Plastered Luminescence" has to been one of my favourites.  Why?   Because I am continually blown away by the work and enthusiasm of the people who have taken this class, brought the techniques home with them and did more art above and beyond all my expectations from the class.  Truly Inspiring

Earlier this summer, I showed you a picture painted in the Plastered Luminescence style by Stephanie that took a photo, enlarged it, carved it and painted it into a showstopping masterpiece.  This week Judy came in with this absolutely FABULOUS face doodle that she sketched, carved and painted in the same way - the way she learned in my class. STUNNING and sooooo Judy's fun quirky style (a doodle style that she's loved and learned from Teesha Moore's books)

She came in to have me help her coat her piece with resin.  The Resin is to protect the fragile plaster (we don't want it chipping) but it also makes the work look like glass!!!!   I've tried to capture that for you to see by taking a photo with glare but you really have to see it in person.

I teach this class in my studio and on the road.  If you are in Edmonton next month, I invite you to come to the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival and take this class with me.   We'll be working on an 8x8 mdf board  and completing the same techniques you see in these photos.   Just bring a photo, sketch or template that you would like to carve and make your own masterpiece.   I know you'll love it!

Next example I hope to show you soon, Patricia's school crest on a 16x20 board!!  Wowsers!   I'm so inspired!!   Hope you are too!

Have a creative day!!

I am sure that you will see some more lovely examples before I get the school crest redone! :)
