Discussions in paint.  Join Jo Sonja as she discusses and demonstrates some of the antiquing and 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 a complementary design from 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.
