Learn how to apply copper leaf to a photograph in this two-day mixed media photography gilding online workshop via Zoom! Cost is $130.
The Image Flow is now offering an online photography course of our Photography Gilding Workshop. This 2-day online photography class has been re-designed for you to access from the comfort of your own home over Zoom!
Learn how to apply a contemporary variation of the ancient gilding technique to your photography work in this two-day metal gilding workshop. Use your own photographs and mixed media pieces and experiment with copper leafing possibilities.
Visual artist Solange Roberdeau will demonstrate contemporary gilding and explain the various metal leafing materials she uses during each Zoom session. Afterward, you can dive right in and experiment with the process. Solange will provide a material list of the materials necessary for copper gilding, which can be purchased online before the start of the workshop. Basic materials include: copper leaf, a bottle of gilding size, a bottle of fluid acrylic, a calligraphy brush, and some watercolor paper.
You’ll learn how to apply copper leaf and loose mica powder pigment to photographic as well as textural, mixed media surfaces. Additionally, you’ll learn tips for incorporating other materials such as thread, fabric, and organic material.
At the end of the online workshop, you’ll have made samples of your own for future use that show each step of the technique. And of course your own gilded pieces of artwork!
