Something for the artist at any level. Even if you don’t think you are interested in printmaking, you will come away with many new ideas and a better understanding of what GOLDEN products can do.

This is an in-depth lecture and demonstration of printmaking techniques using GOLDEN Acrylics. Using repeated images as a theme, you will see many stress-free printmaking techniques, no press required. There will be an overview of the many surfaces available for printing, as well as the array of GOLDEN Acrylic Paints that are suitable for making multiple prints. OPEN, the new acrylic that stays wet for extended periods of time is the perfect match. In addition, QoR Watercolors will be used. This lecture doesn’t stop at the print.
