Join Jo Sonja on a fascinating tour of some of the antiquingand glazing techniques that she enjoys incorporating into her paintings:
• Damascened surfaces
• Water glazing – Delicate Italian style, Ompir Style
• Glaze mottling a background, sponging
• Background lightening
• Controlled “spot glazing”
• Glazed shadowing
• Simple wood graining and enhancing
All of the above techniques are discussed and demonstrated in this conversational tour. Includes DVD and complementary packet (JP3033) that we hope you’ll enjoy. The video does not focus on this specific design, but rather is a general discussion of the above techniques.
