 This trip includes a tour of Golden Paints followed by a 2 hour workshop on using acrylic gels and mediums to extend and modify acrylic paints and to create textural surfaces for many kinds of media including pastels and oil paints.  These products are also excellent adhesives and can be used to develop “skins” for use in paintings, sculptures and collage.  Artists will get hands on instruction blending paints with gel mediums and using the mixtures to achieve various effects on sample boards.
