I've been under the weather these past few months with operations and infections and not feeling well. I am thankful for my readers that come back over and over again to read my blog. I am feeling better today, so I've included a new book review for a new book!
‘Mixed-Media Master Class’ by Sherrill Kahn covers 50 or more techniques for use on paper and/or fabrics. It is a great reference book for anyone wanting to improve or change their artwork. ‘Mixed-Media Master Class’ is also a very good book for beginning students. Kahn shows examples of what the project looks like and then, she lists the steps on how to do the techniques. Kahn uses wonderful photography to aid the students’ learning.
Some of the techniques in ‘Mixed-Media Master Class’ include using resists such as petroleum jelly, using textures, stenciling, making rubbings, making and using handmade stamps, silk screening, how to use lutrador, Transfer Artist Paper (TAP), and computer-printed images.
I like Kahn’s book because no matter what level you are as an artist, there will always be able to learn more from it. It is a great book to help resolve your artist’s block!
