Teacher: Bobbie Draves
Project:”It’s a Sugar Coated Winter” by Renee Mullins
Location: Providence Community Center
Register: A $5.00 check made payable to NCC of SDP to
reserve a space in class is required. Refundable upon attendance
IMPORTANT: I will need to order the patterns and distribute
them to you at the March meeting, so please register as soon as
Class Fee: $10.00 includes pattern packet, gesso, and DecoArt
Frost Gloss Enamel (green), if painting on a
glass block (Though Renee used the Frost Gloss Enamel, I think
you could use regular Decoart Gloss Enamel in your color choice)
Surface: Your choice/you provide: 8” by 8” glass block (Hobby
Lobby has them ½ price every few weeks) or another surface.
You may paint on any surface you have that fits the pattern as
all paints used are Decoart acrylic.
Paints: ( Not Provided) Decoart Acrylic:
Avocado Black Plum Bright Salmon*
Burnt Orange Burnt Sienna Buttermilk
Camel Cocoa Deep Midnight Blue
Colonial Blue* Country Red Hauser Dark Green,
Honey Brown Lamp Black Light Buttermilk
Milk Chocolate Olive Green Orange Twist
Royal Purple Sand Titanium White
(* - new 2016 colors, I will share mine if you don’t have them. I
will bring a set of paint to share – bring what you have and do
not go out and buy the other colors)
Prep: For a glass block you will need to apply the Frost Gloss
Enamel to the block, let it dry, then trace the pattern. The
gingerbread man needs to be solidly basecoated with gesso…this
takes a while because it needs to dry thoroughly between coats;
I did at least 4 coats of gesso. For other surfaces, you will need
to pick a background color and basecoat your surface, then
trace the pattern…no gesso required. I will provide further
instructions when I distribute the patterns.
Lights: I have a few sets of battery operated lights for
inserting into the glass blocks. I will sell them for about
$10 a set.
Bring: Regular painting supplies and lunch.
