Alcohol inks, when mixed, blended or washed together create a plethora of vibrant colors and gourd artist Sue Brogdon is on hand to demonstrate more than a dozen different ways to utilize these bold colors – dripping, outlining, stamping, painting, and blending, to name a few. With some additional insights into color theory, students then have the opportunity to try their hand at each technique. In the afternoon it’s time for free-form wire wrapping and embellishing their gourds, “cannonballs” and ornament-sized as well. Please bring plastic or latex gloves, heat tool (if you have one), fast-drying gel glue such as Gorilla glue, scissors, flat nosed pliers and a wire cutter. Instructor provides two “cannonball” and four small gourds, alcohol inks, dye inks, brushes, sealant and embellishments such as feathers, beads and rocks to complete each of custom-designed pieces.
