Coloring and Illusions

In this demonstration I will show you how to color the textures that I made in the previous demo: Texturing with the Woodburner to make them look real and as close as possible to the material we are trying to copy. I will use the dry brushing technique, with Indian ink and acrylic paints and show you the process of creating a gradient of colors. I will also show you how to use gilding wax and chroma gilt to create metallic effects and damascus texture. Those techniques can be applied on a lot of different textures, like on carved textures but also on sandblasted wood, wire brushed wood or burned wood. I will talk about the colors and how to decide which one to use or not and what the common mistakes are and how to avoid them, or correct them.

It will be an interactive remote demonstration, you will be able to comment and ask questions directly to me, or in the chat. It will be on November 5th, at 9am Mountain Time.

I hope to see you there !
