Creating A Photo Montage from Magazines Using a Dry-Glue Technique


Creating A Photo Montage from Magazines Using a Dry-Glue Technique

June 14 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm | $40.00

In this workshop, participants will create a photo montage using images cut from the pages of discarded magazines. Instead of gluing the work using wet glue straight from the jar, instructor Randel Plowmen will teach a technique using dried gloss medium. This is a great technique for those who need a little more time composing their images before committing to gluing everything down. The technique also works well when creating larger montages or when working with children.
