Sharon Giles will be your host -

We will be working with stencils to make prints using gel plates with acrylic paint, and then adding further pattern directly with stencils. Or you can work with stencils on top of a failed gel print, drawing or watermedia painting, etc.

Tonight is all about layering. And you can go mixed media with your favorite pens and drawing tools too.

I’ll bring my fantastic stash of stencils for you to play with.

If you have a gel plate and brayer, please bring that. I will have some extra gel plates to share.

I’ll do a brief demo of the process at the beginning of the class at 7pm, so be sure to be on time. Doors open at 6:30pm.

Here's a great video on stencil layering techniques: https://youtu.be/Skg1vHQKXP8
