Saturday Collage Class- in the style of Claudine

This past Saturday our collage class worked with a technique that is well known by Claudine Hellmuth. We started with a black and white photograph copy of a person. Then we added patterned paper, paint, text, or printing.  Everyone's piece came out so different. This is mine.

Ginger showed us a vaseline relief method for our paintings. She applied vaseline over the collaged picture and then painted with crackle paint. She wiped off some of the paint near the vaseline design. It was a neat look!

We meet at Susan and Sabyl's studio downtown denver near Broadway. They set up tables so we can all work. We have the best time chatting while we are creating.

Here are some designs by others.

Susan used lots of people on hers.

Enid found these cool fish to collage on.

Here is Ginger's relief with a circus theme.
