October Seminar

October 1 - Here at Ginger's Cameo (4879 Sylvan Rd. – Manchester, MI)

At the October Seminar on the 1st, we learned to paint with a brush – using no transfers. It was only a couple of classes, but it let the folks there stretch their abilities a little bit. I know it's scary to try something new – but they all did it – and they did a great job at it.

The first class – we used an isosceles triangle and an equilateral triangle to make a jack-o-lantern face on a black shirt. We used the first one as the eyes, by laying it out on the shirt where we wanted the eyes and traced around it with a 101, White paint. We used the second one to trace in the nose. After that we filled the triangles in with a brush with 101. (After you iron these two sections dry – you can put on a second coat – and third – and fourth, using 101, 102, 103, or 104 or any other colors that you think would show through these holes on a jack-o-lantern.) Now just take your brush, filled with 101 and make a line for the mouth. It can be a smile, frown, smirk, and way you see the mouth going and now, using that line as a guide, brush in your paint in an up-and-down motion to fill the mouth in. The mouth will be bigger that just the line and it will be jagged at the top and bottom of the mouth. There you have your jack-o-lantern on a black shirt, without using a transfer design. Easy, huh? The second class – we dry-brushed in a sun-rise at the top - then brushed in a river or ocean at the bottom. Once that was all ironed dry – we took black and put in a silhouette of hills and trees. You can see the start of the use of perspective in these two paintings. The secret to this – be sure your paint is dry in between coats.
