The Seduction of Rust

Rust, Bleach, Burn, Stain

I had fun yesterday making some samples for an upcoming 2017 workshop.
In August, I will be teaching a class at The Morgan Paper Conservatory in Cleveland titled
"Rust, Bleach, Burn and Stain".
Just as the title implies we will be using all of these techniques to distress and enhance paper
that can be used for collage, printmaking, etc.

I did some samples for each individual technique and then wanted to make one example
that included all of them.  You can join me for this fun workshop next summer by checking out the Morgan's
If you can't wait until summer for a workshop I will be teaching Encaustic on Paper in January and February,
also at The Morgan.


  1. This is wonderful! I love rust and use it a lot on my art quilts. I would so much like to join you in your class as I had so much fun with you at QSDS this summer but alas, I cannot. I still remember you telling me you wish I had more enthusiasm when I gushed how much I loved encaustic. So much fun.

  2. Thanks, Linda! For the comment and for reading my blog.
    It would be fun to have you in class again and a benefit to all of the other students.
    Your enthusiasm is contagious.
    Maybe our paths will cross again sometime. I certainly hope so.
