Layers of Marks on Canvas

You are registering for on-demand video instruction.  When your purchase is complete, you will receive an email with details on accessing the instructional video that you can watch at your own pace.

In this session you will be guided through my favorite layering process of creating a loose (unstretched) canvas piece with layers of marks in acrylics, pastel, ink and more.

You may practice these techniques on any surface but I will be demonstrating the techniques on a panel of loose canvas measuring roughly 10"x12".  My recommendaiton is that you work on the largest piece you can manage for the most freedom.

Here are some supplies you will want to have on hand.  
All of these supplies are available for purchase from our shop in San Jose.  With enough notice we can mail a kit or arrange for curbside pickup.

  • Acrylic paints
  • Gesso
  • Drying tools (hair dryer works)
  • Paint brushes
  • Makeup Sponge
  • Old key card (starbux card)
  • Stencils
  • Texture tools for stamping
  • Scribing tool like a bamboo skewer
  • Paint markers (posca)
  • Solid Paint Marker (Sakura)
  • White Gelly Roll 10
  • Fine topped permanent black marker 
  • Ball point pen (cheap one like a Bic)
  • Oil Pastels or crayons
  • Deli Paper
  • Matte Medium
  • Embroidery floss & Needle

    This list may seem extensive but you can do a lot with whatever minimal supplies you can lay your hands on.

Customized kits are available for purchase and will soon be available in checkout.  Until then, reply to your registration email confirmation if you would like to purchase supplies to accompany this instructional video.
