This Bigger Bolder version of Gilded Mosaics is designed with more tiles and a decorative shadowbox frame. Gilded Mosaics is the glitziest edition in our Paper Mosaic series of workshops. We are kicking it up a notch by “Gilding” our paper tiles with gold leafing. (Silver and Copper leaf can be used as well.) Spend the day creating vibrant layers of color using applications of alcohol ink on a Gelli Plate. The gold leaf will give your tiles a beautiful warm golden glow and you will achieve some stunning results with the techniques shared in this class. I found it totally addicting! Bet you can’t make just one!
This workshop is designed for beginning students as well as experienced artists. You will leave class with a beautiful rectangle shadowbox frame showcasing your tiles.
