For this workshop, Susan has assembled all her favorite techniques for creating exciting layers of colors and textures using fabric paints on cloth. Included in her repertoire are dribbling, splattering, flicking, spraying, sponging, squirting, scraping with credit cards, jell-o printing, printing with cardboard wrapped with rubber bands, Styrofoam stamps, bubble wrap, leaves, vegetables and textured brayers, and more. Students will produce beautiful pieces of cloth to hang by themselves (art cloth) or that can be used in mixed media collages. This workshop also provides information on color; design; and techniques for creating vibrant hues, mixing rich colors, developing color gradations, and producing exciting mingling of various color combinations.
