Online Lessons: Playing with Acrylic Mediums with artist Lisa Solomon via Creativebug

Are you familiar with acrylic paints? I guess many of us are, yet acrylic mediums are a bit more mysterious. Today, I’m glad to share with you this pro-series class with artist and educator Lisa Solomon. In collaboration with CreativebugLisa provides a thorough lesson on how acrylic mediums can help you create everything from textured impasto surfaces to smooth resin-like finishes.

You’ll learn all about the transparency, translucency, and opacity of your paints, and how to combine them with acrylic mediums to create glazes that will add depth and dimension. Along the way, Lisa demonstrates how to use a photo as an underpainting and build thin layers of color to create a finished piece. She’ll also show you how to collage using matte and gloss gel medium, create resin effects with pouring medium, and work on the glass to create acrylic “skins.” Learning about new materials has never been this fun or vibrant.
