Watercolour on Masa Paper

Level: All Levels

WATERCOLOUR on MASA PAPER with Wendy Robson (4 classes)
Level: All Levels
This interesting technique involves working on crumpled masa paper, gluing the result to conservation board and then finishing the images with some direct watercolour applications. The overall work has a very textural feel and is the result of the initial application of watercolour to the crumpled sheet. You will love the effects you can achieve! This workshop is a fun experience for all levels.
